Cranes for Kids to help Japan


Carters and Osh Kosh B'Gosh have a Cranes for Kids


program to help the children of Japan. For every crane you make they will send an article of clothing to the children of Japan affected by the recent earthquake and tsunami.


You can pick up a crane making kit at your local Osh Kosh store or download instructions here for kids 3-8 use these. They also have a video showing you how to do it here.


Once you make your crane bring it to any Osh Kosh store through April 25,2011


and get 10% off any purchase made that day! You can also take a picture of your crane and upload it to facebook.com/oshkoshbgosh


or mail it to them at:

In Japanese culture,cranes are a powerful symbol of health


and well wishes. The Japanese believe that anyone who makes a 1,000


origami cranes will have a wish granted. The origami cranes delivered to


Osh Kosh stores will be sent to the Osh Kosh stores in Japan as a show


of caring and support.Osh Kosh will donate up to 50,000 pieces of clothing.


I know I have some origami paper around here somewhere, so Princess,


Peanut and I are going to get started watching the videos and try our hand at it.


I think this is a great way to allow the kids to feel like they are doing something


positive to help out during this tragic time. Will you join us?


We'd love to see what you make..send us the link to your blog with pics in the comments


or e-mail me with a pic and I will re-post with your permission.
