BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Students in the southern tier are using origami to support two good causes. Dunkirk School 5’s Origami Club are making paper cranes. They’re making 1,000 of them and selling them for $1 each.
Half of the proceeds will go to Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the other half to the family of a first grader who was just diagnosed with cancer.
A Japanese legend says a person who folds a thousand paper cranes is granted a wish. The origami crane represents hope and healing in hard times.
