Make Paper Cranes, Rebuild Communities

On Friday, March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake struck Sendai, Japan, resulting in a devastating tsunami that ravaged the coast just 180 miles from Tokyo. In response, Students Rebuild partnered with”DoSomething.org to ensure students worldwide have a way to support their Japanese peers – making paper cranes to rebuild¬†communities. Considering¬†such 6th and 7th grade students created various colored paper cranes. These simple yet powerful gestures will help trigger a $200,000 donation from the Bezos Family Foundation – $2 for each crane received – to Architecture for Humanity’s reconstruction efforts in Japan. Once the goal of 100,000 submissions is reached, the cranes will be woven into an art installation – a symbolic gift from students around the globe to Japanese youth.
