The Wishing Crane Project

Spreading hope and optimism into hospice and hospital patients' lives

Who are we?

We are a 100% student run nonprofit organization that creates arts and crafts for hospices and hospitals throughout Arizona. Our mission is to instill positivity and alleviate the feelings of loneliness that hospice and hospital patients commonly experience everyday through gifting patients cranes, cards, and other hand made goods.

Our Impact

Since our founding in 2020, our team of high school and college students have created 7000+ origami paper cranes and dozens of cards for hospital and hospice patients. The Wishing Crane Project has expanded its initiative to 10+ Arizona hospices, Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, Banner Desert Medical Center, Dignity Health Mercy Medical Center, and many more hospitals!
