The Wishing Crane Project

Spreading hope and optimism into hospice and hospital patients' lives

Who We Are

The Wishing Crane Project (TWCP) is a 100% student-run nonprofit organization that creates arts and crafts for hospices and hospitals throughout the world. Our mission is to instill positivity and alleviate the feelings of loneliness that hospice and hospital patients commonly experience every day through gifting patients cranes, cards, and care packages.

Our Impact

Since our founding in 2020, our organization has donated 30,000+ items for hospital and hospice patients. The Wishing Crane Project has expanded its initiative to 90+ hospitals, hospices, and other healthcare facilities across the world.
