Jargon Media and The Istanbul Review Launch the One-Thousand Cranes Campaign, a Unique Relief Effort for Japan


The One-Thousand Cranes campaign is ideal for children, schools, and those who cannot contribute monetarily to the relief effort in Japan. The campaign aims to send well wishes and support to the children impacted by the disaster in Japan, through the use of folded origami cranes from around the world.

Denver, CO, March 26, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Background: Emperor Akihito’s words following the recent earthquake in Japan have sent echoes across the world. In a rare televised address, he spoke to his people and asked them to never give up hope, to care for each other, and to live strong for tomorrow. It is in moments like these that voices of hope need to be heard, that messages of compassion need to be relayed. It is for this reason that The Istanbul Review, an international literary journal, has begun the One-Thousand Cranes campaign.

There is a tradition in Japan that says one-thousand folded cranes gives the folder one wish. Over the next two months, The Istanbul Review will collect folded cranes from across the globe and send them to a Japanese primary school in an attempt to show support.

Each child at the school will receive one crane; a symbol of the world’s collective wish for a speedy recovery.

How to Join in the Effort

• Follow the instructions on how to fold a paper crane.

• Write your name on one wing and your country on the other.

• Send your paper crane in a simple envelope to The Istanbul Review. Addresses can be found at www.theistanbulreview.com/one-thousand-cranes

Crane creators are encouraged to take a photo of their cranes and upload them to the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/onethousandcranes.
