Paper Cranes for Japan

Students Rebuild is a site that mobilizes young people worldwide 
to connect, learn and take action on critical global issues.  

Our goal is to activate our greatest creative resource—students—to catalyze powerful change. Working together, we identify the need, create the challenge, and forge strong partnerships. Then, we provide the tools and support to ensure our collective efforts are sustainable—now and into the future. 

One of their current projects is Paper Cranes for Japan. 

As a way to support the students of Japan, students are asked to make paper cranes. For each paper crane received, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $2 for each crane- 
up to $200,000 to Architecture for Humanity's reconstruction efforts in Japan.  

Once they reach their goal of 100,000 submissions,
 the cranes will be woven into an art installation - 
a symbolic gift from students around the globe to Japanese youth.

For groups who make more than 50 cranes 
you can even email to receive a pre-paid shipping label! 
What a great, fun way to let students help others!
