aha!  I thought you could send them directly to Hiroshima and here's the link:

They'll cycle the cranes through those little booths behind the Sadako statue (when I was there, they had cranes from all over the world - it was really beautiful).  I think there are plans to eventually have an exhibit just of all the cranes that have been sent.  They just need a lot of space for millions and millions of cranes  Grin.

Hope this helps!,

Me and my mom are doing the 1000 paper cranes as well, and we have over 400 now I think.  Anyhow, my mom got the idea to string them onto fishing wire with straws as a seperation thingy, and we're going to use them as curtains!   Grin  Ever since we took down these buttugly curtains in our kitchen, it looks kinda bare.  So we made the cranes in different vibrant colours, and we hung them up where our old curtains used to be.  It looks awesome, but since we're not finished, I haven't placed the pictures up.  It really brightens up our white tiled kitchen.   Smiley

Because I am such an origami nut,my mother gave me an 'origami form a day' calander for christmas. it comes with 365+ pieces of brightly colored origami paper with instructions printed on the wrong side.The paper is about 6"x6". Now ,when I do origami, I don't like BIG paper.I like to attempt to make cranes smaller than a dime. So,I'm taking each piece of paper,folding it in quarters, cutting apart the quarters,folding each of THOSE into quarters,cutting those quarters apart and THEN making cranes out of them. lets see 365x16=5840 teeny tiny cranes,not to mention the 500 I made from the mini origami paper. So, when I'm all done, I will have folded over 6000 cranes,not counting all the ones I did when my class read sadako and the 1000 paper cranes and I read ahead and ended up doing everybody's cranes,even my teacher's.There are still people who were in my class that year and see me making cranes and ask how many I've got now. That is a helluva lot of cranes. I need a new hobby.
