As you may know, in Japanese culture, cranes are a powerful symbol of goodwill and it is believed that anyone who makes 1,000 origami cranes will have a wish granted. Over the next four weeks, OshKosh B’gosh will be collecting paper cranes and sending them to their stores in Japan.
For every crane made, OshKosh B’gosh will send an article of clothing to the children of Japan*. Also, when you bring in your cranes, you’ll receive an extra 10% off of your purchase that day as a thank you from OshKosh B’gosh.
Origami crane instructions and paper are available, at no cost, at all OshKosh B’Gosh stores, including a special cut-out version for younger children. Families can also go online to oshkoshbgosh.com/cranesforkids or visit the OshKosh B’Gosh’s Facebook page (facebook.com/oshkoshbgosh) to download the instructions.
Cranes will be collected at OshKosh B’Gosh stores from March 29, 2011 to April 25, 2011 or can be mailed to: Cranes for Kids/OshKosh B’Gosh, One Waterview Drive, Shelton, CT 06484. Families can also participate by posting a picture of their crane on the OshKosh B’Gosh Facebook page.
*OshKosh B’gosh will match up to 50,000 cranes with articles of clothing.
