|Million Cranes for Japan|

We are launching an exciting international campaign: "Million Cranes for Japan". The "Million Cranes for Japan" Campaign invites you to volunteer your time by participating with others in the making of origami cranes. While you are making them, pray for Japan. Then give the cranes to family and friends for a donation, perhaps 100 yen or 1 dollar each, and give the money to CRASH to support the vision.
Is there still a need to help Japan?
Soon after the great earthquake on March 11, 2011, CRASH Japan began working to deliver aid and bring hope to survivors in Tohoku. The vision to mobilize thousands of volunteers, establish bases in Tohoku, and support local churches seemed like a pipe dream at the time. But due to an amazing response from Christians in Japan and around the world, CRASH planted five bases in Tohoku and has mobilized almost three thousand volunteers since the disaster! God has used thousands of people like you to bless Japan.
Yet today many survivors are still alone, living in fear and without hope. While the government of Japan has proven to be very good at meeting the essential physical needs of survivors, tending to the inner needs of survivors is far more challenging.
We have the opportunity to continue to make a huge impact in Tohoku by sending volunteers -- Christian volunteers who tend to emotional and spiritual needs by bringing the love of Jesus Christ. Volunteers care for people by meeting personal needs. Volunteer activities include praying, performing concerts, serving food, helping children with homework, playing with children, listening, cleaning, crafting, and giving hand massages. Volunteers often have opportunities to share the gospel with survivors.
What exactly will your donations be used for?
We would love for you to partner with us in this endeavor. Help us fold a Million CRANES for Japan! Help us continue to serve Tohoku and prepare for future disasters.
