As a part of Asian Central, Stuff Asian People Like is very much connected to the Asian Community. For the last couple of days, it has been extremely difficult for our staff to continue writing in the wake of the China Earthquakes and Burma Cyclone. Please be patient, as we have taken the last couple of days off to mourn the losses of our brothers and sisters in China and Burma. To respond to the tragedy, please help us fold peace cranes or make a pledge for peace crane folders. Please visit Project Peace Crane.
‘This is our cry, this is our prayer: peace in the world.” – Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
“I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world.” – Sadako Sasaki
“She was told, if she folded 1,000 paper cranes the gods would grant her wish, she wished to get well, … She ended up folding 644 cranes before she died.”
Asian Central Family – It’s time we respond to the devastation that occurred yesterday. We don’t have money, but if you would like to help fold 12,000 paper cranes, please join our Facebook Group: Project Peace Crane, and update the wall with how many you have folded. If each of us folds 100 and 120 join this group, we’ll be able to show to the world that our hearts are with the family and people who have suffered this tragedy. We will each take pictures of our cranes and AC will create a huge collage. As part of the AC Rice Bowl and community involvement, AC will give you 1 rice point per crane you help fold. Please get your friends to join the Asian Central Community and help fold: http://asian-central.com
How will folding cranes help China and Burma versus donating money?
People can do both. It’s really up to the individual how to respond and this is one way. Some people do not have money to give or they are wary of where the money actually ends up. This is a very meaningful way to respond because many people including the youth on AC Community have felt detached, apathetic, or simply do not know what to do or how to respond to tragedies, disasters, and injustice around the world. This is one way to respond and reflect on the victims or pray for their families as you are folding each crane.
We recommend that you read the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. These folded cranes will be a vigil for the people in China and Burma. For each crane you fold, you can spend that moment to reflect on the deaths or pray for the families. Continue to invite your friends, and take part in our Paper Crane Vigil. If you have further questions, feel free to ask us: email@example.com.
We will be back in a few days. In the meantime, please support Asian Central as we fold 12,000 paper cranes for the 12,000+ China Earthquake and Burma Cyclone Victims.
