“I will write peace on your wings and you will fly over the world” – Sadako Sasaki

Give the gift of peace and share the true story of hope.

Hope in a Box is a hand-folded crane made of the finest origami paper housed in a delicate, individually blown glass bauble. The crane is our tribute to the one thousand blessings that Sadako Sasaki bestowed upon the world. It is an everlasting legacy that carries the spirit of hope and determination.

“May the act of hanging a crane symbolise our support in peace and hope, honouring Sadako’s legacy”. -Short Story.



The story of Sadako follows a young girl who became very ill from the atomic effects of WWII.  Bedridden in hospital, her determination and spirit gave life to an ancient legend that promised anyone who folded a thousand origami cranes would be granted one wish.  It was Sadako’s desire to hope for good luck, long life, peace and recovery from her illness.

On the 25th of October 1955, Sadako sadly passed surrounded by loved ones and family. Although Sadako’s short years her thousand paper cranes would take flight in another way, serving as a symbol of the growing movement for peace on Earth.

Each year, children and adults from all over the world travel to the Children’s Peace Monument in Japan, hanging their own folded paper cranes as a gift to Sadako’s memory and serving as a symbol of their desire for peace.

Made with hand and heart by SHORT STORY.
