I am thrilled about this event. I wish to bring a friend with a brain injury with me and am willing to pick you up to help with my friend, Patty, Like park the car or what ever needs come up. I understand if this does not work out.... If your heart is lead let me know.
Thank you all,
Jan Bergstrom

In keeping with the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota's mission to enhance the quality of life and bring the promise of a better tomorrow for all people affected by brain injury, we are seeking your help in creating Cranestorm���Wishes in Flight.

Cranestorm���Wishes in Flight will launch immediately through the support of various groups like yours to help us fold and collect origami cranes. Our goal is to accumulate 100,000 cranes, one for every Minnesotan with brain injury. The cranes we receive will eventually become part of an ongoing art installation.

At various events throughout the year, we will have the donated cranes on display and - when possible - crane folding activity stations. At these events, individuals can choose to honor a loved one, share a message to someone with brain injury, or make a wish for themselves or others by selecting a crane and writing on the crane's wing.

Our collection of cranes is meant to convey the spirit of well-wishing while visually quantifying the number of individuals affected by brain injury in Minnesota. We also hope to raise awareness of brain injury and educate communities about brain injury prevention.

Your participation can provide many opportunities for education in areas of health, history and culture, art, disability awareness and the importance of community service.
