Cranes on the Green

I covered a really cool event yesterday for the Brown Daily Herald and I wanted to share a few of the photos I took. Cranes on the Green was an event put together the Japanese Cultural Association "to commemorate the devastating earthquake that swept away thousands of homes and lives in the northeastern regions of Japan last March. (source)"

For five hours this Sunday, the JCA members stood by a table selling t-shirts to raise money for earthquake relief in Japan and approaching all who passed by the main green. "Hi, would you like to put a crane on the green in memory of the earthquakes in Japan last year?" with the exception of two fraternity pledges who were being forced to walk backwards and were not allowed to go on grass, all who were approached said yes. They were then handed wooden skewers with blue or pink cranes on them. By the end of the day, there was a beautiful garden of paper cranes covering that expanse of grass.
