6,000 cranes for 6 years; for 5 members, and for 1 team.
Or so that was the original goal, but as of April 23, 2009, TVXQWish has officially raised their goal from 6,000 to 11,000 as we hoped to do as a result of the great response from fans.1,000 cranes for each member and 6,000 cranes for the group and for 6 years. As we easily saw, 6,000 cranes is nothing in the face of the strong support of TVXQ's fans. So let's aim for 11,000 cranes succesfully!
QianYun has personally folded 1,000 cranes as a Christmas gift to a family close to her. As encouragement, here is a picture of the finished project:
While she does have experience in folding cranes, it still only took her a couple of months. And now we can see that if enough people gather together to work hard on this, 6,000 and even 11,000 are numbers that can be easily achieved. But before we go into more talk about numbers, let’s talk more about the project.
The new goal of 11,000 cranes means that anyone who decides to participate can send in a decent amount. Anywhere from 1 to hundreds, with only a minimum number declared from each person. But considering the high popularity of the project in the beginning, we are setting a 600 crane limit per person. If we find that new sign-ups fall, we'll remove the maximum.As we are folding these cranes with our hopes and wishes for TVXQ, part of this project is to write those hopes and wishes as well as other simple messages on the cranes. Of course, once the cranes are folded, the messages cannot be read anymore. So this part of the project includes printing out the messages and binding them into a book so that the members of TVXQ can read them.
