By folding 1,000 origami cranes, I hope to raise 2k to support Marie Curie's nurses and hospices during the COVID19 pandemic. To adopt one crane of the thousand, please donate £2, and I'll make sure it gets to you later.
One thousand origami cranes (千羽鶴, senbazuru; literally “1000 cranes”) is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes(折鶴, orizuru) held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Some stories believe you are granted happiness and eternal good luck, instead of just one wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. In some stories it is believed that the 1000 cranes must be completed within one year and they must all be made by the person who is to make the wish at the end.
A thousand paper cranes are often given to a person who is seriously ill, to wish for their recovery. They are usually created by friends or colleagues as a collective effort.
