Syracuse students are Engaging the World and putting Scholarship in Action to raise awareness and provide fundraising support for Japan. As many of you are aware, on March 11, 2011 a massive earthquake initiated a tragic sequence of events in Japan that has led to over 27,600 dead or missing, 173,200 homeless and hundreds of thousands more without adequate access to water, food, or electricity. This tragedy is global in scale and as part of the global community, Syracuse University students and organizations have come together to create Project Paper Crane.
For every $2 students contribute, Project Paper Crane will construct an orange crane and add it to our growing installation on the Schine/Newhouse lawn. Our goal is to raise $14,000 within the student body and produce 7,000 paper cranes.
We are asking our alumni community to match student participation with donations of $2 or more, one donation for every crane. 100% of all donations will go directly to the Japan Societies Earthquake Relief Fund.
On April 25th, SU and our orange cranes will join the global community as part of a 100,000 crane installation organized by Students Rebuild. For every crane Students Rebuild receives, another $2 donation will be triggered, this time to Architecture for Humanity, courtesy of The Bezos Family Foundation.
The Japan Society accepts donations of $10 or more. Please click either the SU Alumni or SU Student donation button! Thank you for your help towards earthquake relief!
