For the past month kids around the world were challenged to create Paper Cranes for Japan. The effort, a collaboration for Paper Cranes for Japan has met with an overwhelming support from schools, church groups and other relief organizations around the world in response to the devastating earthquake and resulting tsunami in Japan on March 11th to inspire young people worldwide to support their Japanese peers.
Children from eight provinces in Canada and every state in the U.S. participated. Children responded worldwide from 36 countries, including students in Haiti, who folded hundreds of cranes for Japan during the groundbreaking of a newly reconstructed school in Port au Prince.
Children in the Grade ½ class under the direction of teacher Rena Buhler and Christine Watt, Educational Assistant created paper cranes that will make their way to Japan on May 13th. The school also collected money to donate to the Canadian Red Cross’ relief efforts in Japan.St. Joseph School Cranes for Kids Project Picture
