A little while back we posted photos of some PopCappers who shaved their heads in support of our co-worker Lisa while she’s receiving cancer treatment.
When our Shanghai office heard about the head-shaving party, they started thinking about a way to show their support for Lisa. Because cranes symbolize long life, good fortune and healing in China and Japan, they decided to make 1000 origami cranes for her.
First all 107 employees in Shanghai learned how to fold the cranes, then they got to work making 1000 of them in a week’s time. The cranes were packed into luggage and came to Seattle with some Shanghai folks visiting for meetings last week.
The cranes landed in Lisa’s office while she was out, and she was touched and amazed to find them everywhere when she returned!
