In case you’d like to know the breakdown of crane information so far, here are some statistics.
I’ve folded 53 of my 1000 crane goal.
I’ve collected 8 stories where I know people met their goal.
Of those 8 stories, half were undertaken by individuals, and half by groups working together.
4 were inspired by wishes for good health.
1 was political speech.
2 were artistic in nature.
1 was inspired by Eleanor Coerr’s book.
The collective total is 25000. (My current thinking is that each cause/reason being folded for counts as a single story. However, I’m keeping track of the grand total for those times that the crane count goes above 1000.)

This is so cool and fascinating. I love how you broke the info down, and I can’t believe the collective total is 25,000.
Before I started, I worried I wouldn’t be able to find 1000 stories. Now it seems like the world is awash in cranes. Many people don’t stop at just one thousand.
There’s a thousand crane artwork in our library. I will grab a picture of it to show you.
