Barons School Students Give Flight To Japan Rebuilding Effort
Barons: In the Japanese culture, the crane represents long life and good health.
101-students at Barons school are sending that wish to the people of Japan,
during their time of pain and sorrow.
In just four days, between March 22nd and 25th, the students folded 2500
paper origami cranes.
The little paper birds will be sent to the Students Rebuild Initiative,
which is part of the Bezos Family Foundation in Seattle. For every paper crane
the foundation gets from students around the world, the foundation will donate
$2 to rebuilding Japan, up to a total of $200,000. The paper cranes folded by
the Barons school students will add $5000 to the project.
The Barons school is an alternative program in Palliser Regional Schools,
serving students from the region's Low German Mennonite community.
