Legend tells us the creation of a paper crane can lead to the granting of wishes.

After making your wish, take a photo of yourself holding your paper crane and share this photo on your favorite social networks with the hashtag #thepapercraneproject in the description so we can find it and share it too! Or, if you prefer, email your photo to us at hello@thepapercraneproject.com.

Learn from those who are fighting cancer and winning

Cancer has touched the lives of almost everyone on the planet in one way or another. It can breed fear, frustration, and misunderstanding. But it also creates stories of perseverance, healing, love, and victory that we don’t often hear…

We want to hear your story of inspiration and victory. Drop us a note to find out how you can share your story with The Paper Crane Project community.
