1,001

Since we started last Monday, my co-workers and I — some I’m close with and some I’d never spoken to before — have folded 1,001 paper cranes.

1,001.

We also raised a sizable contribution for the American Red Cross’s relief efforts in Japan, which have only just scratched the surface of what is sure to be an endless recovery process.

In celebration of the work, the patience and the time we donated to this project, a few of us enjoyed a post-work celebratory hurricane at a local New Orleans fare restaurant. We stayed so long we got to enjoy the jazz band also.

I’ve been more than happy to work on this fundraiser, but I’ll also be happy if I never fold another piece of paper.

Cheers!

  1. Agreed. As fun as it was, I never want to fold paper again! Kampai! (Japanese for cheers)

  2. Wonderful work!

  3. 1,001! Impressive. Sounds like added benefit of getting to connect with coworkers outside the regular circle.
