Paper Cranes for Boulder and Indianapolis

March 23, 2021 - June 30, 2021

As we reflected upon our own experiences as family members and survivors of the Aurora Theater tragedy, we especially appreciate the heartfelt messages of comfort and support that we received from individuals and communities all over the world. We have since strived to pay that kindness forward to other communities who have experienced unspeakable tragedy. We have been sending them wreaths made of paper cranes containing messages of love and support. We would be honored if you joined us in folding cranes, and together we will create these symbols of peace and love that will be a true testament to the kindness and humanity that is much stronger than hate!

Our foundation is collecting paper cranes with notes of love and support for our neighbors in Boulder and the Indianapolis community affected by recent tragedy now through June 30th, 2021.

To be a part of this project, all you need is 5 7/8” X 5 7/8” origami paper and an open heart.

We are collecting cranes in 3 ways:

Via social media:

Write a comment on our Facebook, twitter or Instagram page and we will put it on a crane for you to add to the wreath.

The completed cranes will be assembled on wreaths and sent to:
