We invite school and community groups, individuals and families, all around the world to fold a peace crane or dove, fill its wings with words and pictures of peace, then through us, trade it with another child somewhere in the world. Sign up here!
We host the Peace Crane Project every day of the year. Many groups choose to join us for the United Nations International Day of Peace, held each September 21.
Some of our schools and groups plan their curriculum months in advance. With schedules varying so dramatically around the world, we want to make sure we allow plenty of time to become a part of the September school curriculum in your community. If you plan to join us in September, please sign up now and begin to plan as soon as you are able.
This year, we are hosting a special project and invite you to participate. Our goal is to collect 1,000 cranes, created by children in every corner of the planet. We will then display them in various venues around the world. A list of venues will be created and updated as we have confirmations. If you have a venue that would like to host the cranes, or you are affiliated with a potential sponsor, please contact us. If you would like to participate by sending a crane, please also send us a note and we will let you know where to mail your crane.
In the coming months, we will strive to find the perfect crane exchange partners, arrange classroom volunteers for some of you, and target our efforts to your specific needs. Please reach out to us with comments, questions, or requests for help.
We are counting the countries that visit us! This counter is reset on Peace Day in September of each year.
