What Is Your Wish?
Asian legend states that when 1000 Origami cranes are folded, a wish can be granted. Origami cranes have become a symbol of peace through the story of WWII survivor Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who folded a thousand paper cranes to be granted one wish—to live. Her story has inspired people all over the world to fold and display origami cranes as a symbol of peace.
We are bringing that spirit to Central Texas by creating the 1000 Cranes of Peace art installation to raise funds and awareness for programs that provide advocacy, counseling and resources to families seeking peace from domestic violence, sexual assault or trafficking. Every year, our community collectively builds an origami art installation while helping families find peace from abuse. This year, our goal is to build the largest origami crane installation yet! For every $10 raised, an origami crane will be added to the art installation. For this year’s project, we have partnered with Urban Jobe Architecture and Jobe Fabrication to capture the energy and spirit of the project and turn it into an interactive art installation to be unveiled July 24, 2014.
