Japan Relief: Paper Cranes

Many people are finding new ways to contribute to disaster relief in JapanAn ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. Don't get me wrong, wishes are great, but how about something more tangible. If you don't think you have enough extra change in your pocket to donate cash, I've found one original idea that is simple and free.
The children's clothing brand OshKosh B'Gosh is promising to donate one item of clothing (up to 50,000 articles) for each paper crane made by YOU. You can mail the cranes into their home office, bring them into a store, or upload it to their Facebook page.
Here's the address for paper mail:

Cranes for Kids
OshKosh B’Gosh

There are instructions for making the cranes on their website.
