Continue to Fold Your Peace Cranes

In August 1945, an estimated 185,000 people lost their lives as a result of the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which represent the first and only nuclear attacks on earth. We are working to ensure they are also the last.

As this month comes to a close, we would like to thank everyone who participated and shared in our efforts to fold 1,000 Cranes for Peace – as a remembrance for the victims of the nuclear bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So far, we’ve reached 25 cranes, many with unique and heartfelt stories behind them. These cranes are a symbol of a wish for peace through a world free of nuclear weapons. For everyone who’s still practicing their crane folding, we will continue to share the cranes on Facebook. If you’d like to join in, download instructions to fold your own paper crane and watch our instructional video. Then share your crane on our special Facebook app (submitted cranes will be published weekly). It’s a fun and creative way to show your support of a world free of nuclear weapons. We are very grateful for your participation. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your support.
