How to fold a paper origami crane & support Japan

this is something that is near and dear to my heart.  

when my older sister was 21, she had a brain tumor removed.  the doctor gave her 1 year to live.  needless to say, i lost it right there in the waiting room.  long story short, she went through radiation and chemotherapy treatments, i prayed A LOT, and now she is 42 and doing great!

while she was going through treatments we received a package in the mail from Japan.  it contained 1000 paper cranes.  each one was hand folded by some dear friends of the family.  it was just beautiful.  please watch the video above to learn a little bit more about the history behind the paper crane and also to learn how to fold one.  :o)

if you fold one and would like to show support for Japan you can go to http://www.dosomething.org/news/join-us-make-paper-cranes-japan
