As you can see, Riverstone students have been busy making origami cranes representing a wish for speedy recovery and good health for the people of Japan. To date, they have raised over $300 to send to Happy Hearts Fund (HHF), a non-profit foundation dedicated to improving children’s lives through educational and sustainable programs in natural disaster areas. We will be able to designate our funds as specifically aiding Japan. Since inception, HHF programs have benefited more than 31,000 children and 334,000 community members. Visit their website for more information.
Thank you to Parker B for initiating this great idea and Grade 4 for making signs and coordinating the sale of the origami paper. Your enthusiasm was contagious!
