My local neighborhood blog, MyBallard.com has a great story about my some kids at my son’s elementary school making paper cranes to support rebuilding efforts after the Japanese earthquake/tsunami. The cranes project is through Students Rebuild, and will be part of a permanent art installation in Japan. Each crane donated was matched with $2 from the Bezos Family Foundation and the Whittier kids helped raise over $3,000!

The article talks a little bit about how the students were directly affected by the Japan disaster and is worth a read.
Well done third graders (and a shout out to Ms. Kennedy, Nate’s teacher last year and one of his favorites ever)!
