Tomodachi is sponsoring a new community awareness project through art! Help us spread the word about brain injury and send a message of hope to those who suffer from this illness by working with us to fold 10,000 paper cranes.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes will be granted any wish. Today, paper cranes are often made and donated to hospitals to generate awareness about illnesses. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1,000 paper origami cranes makes a person’s wish come true-wiki. In that spirit, Tomodachi is partnering with the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota to make 10,000 paper cranes.
After Tomodachi has collected all crane donations, the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota will use them to educate communities about brain injury. Ultimately, these paper cranes will be used to create Cranestorm – Wishes in Flight, a massive 100,000 paper crane piece of art demonstrating both the number of people in Minnesota that live with Brain Injury, as well as the spirit of well-wishing that Tomodachi has for those affected. But we need your help to make this wish come true.
Here are some more things to help get you started:
• Tomodachi will be offering free workshops to any person or group interested in making paper cranes for this event (paper will be provided). Ask an employee for details or call 651-631-1777.
• Walk in workshops will be held every Saturday from 2:00 – 6:00 pm.
• Click here to see how to make a paper crane.
• Cranes of any size are accepted.
• Solid colors are preferred, but feel free to be artistic in your choice of paper. We also encourage you to use recycled paper or magazines if you’re making cranes at home.
• Do not string or attach the cranes together, we will do that later!
• When you are finished with your cranes, please bring them to Tomodachi’s store location at Rosedale mall.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of those suffering from brain injury! If you want to learn more about the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota visit http://www.braininjurymn.org/
