1000 Cranes for Japan

When I saw all of the muses from Mortal Muses making beautiful cranes I knew I wanted to make one too. Damiec is a contributor to flickr and she started a group in hopes of gathering 1000 cranes for Japan. You can visit Damiec's flickr group and see all the beautiful cranes that people have made for Japan.  She explains it a little more too. The people in Japan have gone through such tragedy and heart break. We all want to do something. Perhaps you'd like to add to the group as well.  So many people from all over the world joining together to show their support for Japan. I love this idea so I thought I'd join along.



In Japan, the tradition of folding 1,000 cranes is done when someone has a wish, be it for peace, health or luck.
