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.
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.
