The origami cranes will be sent in honour of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl living in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped. Aged 11 she was diagnosed with leukaemia, a type of cancer caused by the atomic bomb. While in the hospital, Sadako started to fold paper cranes.
Legend says that if you make 1000 cranes your wish will come true. Her wish was that she would get well again, and to have peace in a world free of nuclear weapons.
After Sadako died, her classmates raised money to build a memorial to her and all the children that were killed by the atomic bomb.
Our goal is to send 1000 origami cranes for the memorial.
