This idea was suggested by a lady named JoAnn when she read my crazy idea for World Lupus Day on my personal blog. I will use her words to describe this project:
What about collecting butterflies made by people, trying to get 1000 of them in an act similar to the 1000 paper cranes idea for origami. I looked up origami butterflies and got this page- http://www.google.com/images?rlz=1T4ADFA_enUS363US363&q=origami…. They say that if you fold 1000 origami cranes you will get your wish- maybe 1000 origami (and other media) butterflies will get more people aware of Lupus and the search for a cure for it.
This is an easy project to do. And if enough people participate in this one, we could have more than 1000 of them. I invite you take pictures and video of your progress. I invite you to be innovative and find unique ways to display your paper butterflies. If you take video but lack the skills to edit it, I am more that willing to edit it and create videos for part of the final project.
Once you are finished your paper butterflies, please email me any associated media to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please try to have all finished projects into me by Midnight PDT on May 8 for the World Lupus Day update on May 10, and Midnight PDT on October 28 for Lupus Awareness Month updates.
