As you know, we have many paper cranes around our house at the moment.
Everytime I see one of these little birds, I am reminded to send up a little prayer for those in Japan.
So, so heartbreaking.
We have packaged some up to send to Maddie from L'il Magoolie in Christchurch. She is trying to collect a thousand for her beloved city as well as another thousand for Japan. So far, she has 55 - if you can give her a hand - please head over here.
Paper cranes are a symbol of peace and harmony and the Japanese believe that one thousand of them can grant a wish. A wish that this kind of devastation will not happen again and as a tribute to those who have lost their lives. A simple gesture to say that we care.
I'm actually not sure how you can make a picture in the actual post link to a website, so you'll have to click here to get there.
