The Art of Making Beautiful Peace Cranes
Come and play like a child and fly like a bird ... all for a good cause of rescuing injured and displaced animals in Ukraine.
Hi, this Kay Hirai.
My passion is to share my love of making things with my hands and help you to release your creativity and inspiration for positive thinking.
What could be more rewarding and peaceful than to paint and fold beautiful Peace Cranes during this time of disturbing world affairs? You will make your own style of birds where you express your hope for world peace. What meaningful ideas will come out of your head and translate onto your folded craine? You can use whatever art supplies you have. How to assemble your needed supplies such as magazine papers, watercolors, crayons, etc. will be delivered to your inbox after you register. Can't attend? No worries, a video replay will be sent to you.
The cost of this workshop is only $30. Proceeds will be donated to American Humane to rescue and care for the injured and abandoned animals in Ukraine.
Date: May 21, 2022 Time: 10:00AM Replay video will be sent to you.
Please read Sadako's story below.Let's Go!
Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
Sadako was two years old when the United States dropped the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on Aug. 6, 1945. Although she survived the horrific attack, Sadako developed leukemia from the radiation diagnosed as atomic bomb disease.
While in the hospital, Sadako began folding paper cranes. She was inspired to do so by the Japanese legend that one who created a thousand origami cranes would be granted a wish. Her wish was to live in a peaceful world.
She exceeded her goal 1,000 cranes and died having folded 1,400 birds. The Japanese government continues to gift Sadako's cranes to countries around the world as a token of her unfulfilled dream for world peace.
