Even the most cynical person has to be impressed by this. What began as a simple idea to make paper cranes for Japan as a symbolic gesture went from 1,000 to 10,000 to 100,000 and now 1,000,000. We are equally honored to be the recipient of the donations generated via this global action.
We are currently focusing on a series of projects in and around Sendai, Motoyoshi, Ishinomaki City and Maeami, Japan.
All of us at Architecture for Humanity would like to thank the Bezos Family Foundation, Students Rebuild, Do Something and, of course, the thousands of kids who folded, folded and folded!
For the past month, kids around the world were challenged to create 100,000 Paper Cranes for Japan.
