All right guys! Here’s a much needed blog update!!
Serendipity – The event was sadly cancled due to unforeseen circumstances. We will continue looking for opportunities to perform.
Which brings us to our next news item!
Izumicon – Happy!Project will be performing the opening, intermission and ending of the cosplay show for Izumicon! The convention will run November 21 to November 23 and will take place in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. You can find more information at http://www.izumicon.com/
As many of you know, the official website for Happy!Project has been down for a while, and we’ve been trying to look for solutions to get it back up. We have finally decided to get our own domain name!!! Which is really exciting! The website is still being put back up, and we are all working on banners and graphics for our new website. The website can be found at http://www.happy-project.org Please be sure to check it out!!
And lastely, we have started a community event, and we will be working with the 6th graders of Sky Ranch Elementary in Oklahoma City to fold as many paper cranes as humanly possible. We will be sending 1,000 cranes to Hiroshima to the statue of Sadako and then placing the rest of what we can make in the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, where many children also lost their lives. We will be connecting the two tragic events, and remembering both as well. There is a story in Japan that says if you fold 1,000 paper cranes you will have a wish granted, we will be wishing for peace and unity. In hopes that nothing like these tragic events will ever have to happen again.
We are asking for donations to help us with this project! If you can send Origami paper, words of encouragement for the 6th graders, or money so that we can buy Origami paper, it would be highly appreciated! We have set up a paypal account, we will be using all donations to purchase origami paper. Please follow the link below if you would like to donate, all donations are HIGHLY appreciated and will be used exclusively for these projects!
