A Way for Your Kids to Send a Message of Hope & Peace to Kids in Japan
CranesForKids.com is a brand new web site that gives children a way of sharing their messages of peace, hope, and good will to the children suffering in Japan.
Launched on Friday, March 18th, CranesForKids.com was created by Jim Robinson and Kurt Dommermuth of KneeBouncers.com- a popular games site for babies and toddlers. Last week, these two dads offered on their Kneebouncers Facebook page to donate all proceeds from membership fees to the Red Cross. After the money was raised, they had the idea of sharing not just money but messages and kind words as well.
The Japanese tradition of folding 1000 cranes represents a form of healing and hope during challenging times.
It’s simple- go to www.CranesforKids.com, pick the color of paper crane to represent your message, and enter your name, age, city, state, and country in addition to your message of hope.
This is a unique opportunity for parents to let their children express how they feel about the tragedy, because everyone’s seeing it and it’s difficult to keep your kids from it right now. It’s all over the news and may be very scary for them. CranesforKids.com is a means for them to reach out and express hope and know that they are helping.
