Alpha Phi Omega is looking for fellow students to join us on October 27th from 8-10pm as we fold 1,000 origami paper cranes. This event will take place in room 314 of the student union. The cranes will be donated to Lydia’s Cancer Hope and are going to be sent to Congress in Washington D.C. with letters asking for increased funding in research for childhood cancer. This project was brought to Alpha Phi Omegas attention by an article about a little girl name Lydia. Lydia's mother is a teacher at Wayne College.
According to Japanese folklore, 1000 origami paper cranes equals one’s wish. Lydia’s Cancer Hope's wish is to eradicate pediatric cancer, and the cranes symbolize the HOPE for a cure that comes with increased funding and awareness.
