Call for cranes

Have you heard about about The Wedding Co.'s Chandelier of Cranes Project? No!?! Well, it's art installation meets charity meets just plain damn awesome. Umm, still don't get it? Well then let Stephanie the Project Coordinator explain it to you ...

We would love to invite you to participate in our social venture as we strive to collect 5000 signed origami cranes from engaged couples, each one representing one couple's vision of their future together. For every crane received, The Wedding Co. will donate $0.50 to cancer research.

The completed chandelier will be a visual and spiritual unification of engaged couples around the world and will be displayed at the 2010 Wedding Co. Show in Toronto.

Over the next year, we will be connecting with wedding professionals and engaged couples from all over the world in hopes of having them sign or send us an origami crane. Each week, I post updates of the Crane Project on the
Daily News.

Here’s how YOU can participate and help contribute to the chandelier project:

1. Send us your mailing address and we are happy to mail you a crane kit which includes pre-folded cranes and some cards describing the project. Have engaged couples sign the cranes and then return them to us.

2. Fold an origami crane(s) and have an engaged couple(s) you know sign the crane and mail it to us at:

The Wedding Co.
Attn: Crane Chandelier Project
110 Givins Street
Toronto, ON, Canada
M6J 2X9

3. Spread the word - visit The Wedding Co.
website to watch the chandelier take flight.

I can't wait to make my crane and send it in .... and by that I mean force the Big Guy to make and then take all the credit!
