Cranes for Kids Selected as Cool Site of the Day!
The Cranes For Kids web site is about letting children have an opportunity to share their messages of peace, hope and good will to our neighbors and friends in Japan. The Japanese tradition of folding 1000 cranes represents a form of healing and hope during challenging times, and has also become a symbol of world peace.
“Kurt came to me with the idea on a Thursday morning. His friend Phil Tajitsu Nash of Nash Interactive had contacted him about our membership donation promotion,” said Jim. “He applauded our efforts and brought up the idea of sending good wishes along to help the healing of the Japanese people. Mindfulness to rekindle compassion.”
The site went live by Friday evening.

“We would be honored if we have that many [1,000] good thoughts going out through the site,” said Jim.
