Support our community's mental health.
In Japanese culture, a crane is known as the "bird of happiness." Origami cranes have become symbols of peace, hope, joy, and healing in challenging times. If 1,000 were folded, it is said your dreams will come true. Our dream at MHA is to continue improving the mental health and wellness of our community and beyond. Please help us make our dream come true by spreading peace, hope, and healing this winter season with your donation. Watch a beautiful video HERE about the symbolism of 1,000 cranes.
Every donation will receive an original print thank you card designed by local artist, Richard Biemann. Inside each card will be a handmade paper crane ornament, folded with care by our MHA staff and volunteers. If you donate over $50, we will send an additional card and crane to someone of your choice. (Please include their name, address, and a message you wish shared with them in the section below.)
We thank you for your incredible generosity at whatever level matches your giving ability!
