Albany --The Albany Museum of Art wants visitors to help them spread breast cancer awareness in the area. "A Thousand Cranes, Creations of Hope" is a project started by 12-year-old Jonathon Jefferson who wants to help those suffering from the disease.
Jefferson is reaching out to help survivors.
Each crease is made with care, and each fold is for a purpose.
"We can honor the women that survive breast cancer," said 12-year-old Jonathon Jefferson.
Twelve-year-old Jonathon Jefferson remembers an old Japanese legend that says a-thousand paper cranes are a wish for health and wellness. He sends that wish to women like his fifth grade teacher Brenda Bradley.
"My teacher had breast cancer in fifth grade, and she was my favorite teacher, and that made me really sad," said Jefferson.
Those feelings prompted him to help others with breast cancer. He wants ten-thousand cranes by the end of the month, to put on display at a local hospital to bring attention to the disease.
"It's a lot of folding," said Jefferson.
Since Jonathon can't do it alone, he's inviting the community to come out to the Albany Museum of Art and fold.
Making an origami crane doesn't take a lot of time, it just takes a little bit of practice. The museum is asking for a $1 donation for each crane you fold, and all the money raised will go toward fighting breast cancer.
"If they can help prevent it, it would never be a problem again," said Jefferson.
So as Jonathon finishes each crane, he has his message, down to an art.
The community is invited to fold cranes for the next three Saturdays at the museum.
Eventually ten-thousand cranes will be shaped into a sculpture and on display at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital. All proceeds will go to the Carlton Breast Health Center.
