An Image of Hope

Origami cranes are often used to signify hope. This origami crane was made by a university student, who created 1000 (and more) of these cranes to raise money for the victims of the earthquake in Japan. All money was donated through the Red Cross to relief efforts.I was so glad that she did this, and I chose one and it is hanging  in the room where I work. I thought it would be a good image as well  to post here for the people who are suffering through spring tornados in the southern States.

A lovely idea and something that a lot of people are trying to do, showing support and love from all over the world.

PS: I had the names mixed up, it's Arthur who resembles Lois.

Hugs to all, G

Thanks Ger for dropping in,
The blog "Oldgreymare", has a post today for Project Genesis. Suzan suggests that doing one simple thing can help, and she has some great links. You might enjoy looking here.

(Arthur is sweet isn't he. I'm expecting soon he'll shed his long hair including the mane. He grows this mane and longer hair twice a year, and then sheds twice a year.For a good part of the year he looks like a medium haired cat, and the he grow his fur out and looks quite exotic.)

Thanks again for checking in. Happy Sunday!
