You may be aware that several groups are involved with raising funds for work in Japan following the tsunami. There is an independent project titled ‘Origami for Relief‘ with all donations and funds raised going directly to the British Red Cross.
I saw one of their stands today and the volunteers had all recently learned to fold the crane. At £1 each, they have already raised over £700 – not bad for non-folders! It’s great to see origami being responsible for helping this deserving cause – if you see them, buy a crane!
They also have a facebook page – what’s not to like?
