Hope In A Box! By Short Story is available online at ArtSHINE store.

“May the act of hanging a crane symbolise our support in peace and hope,

honouring Sadako’s legacy”

~Short Story.

Here at ArtSHINE we are so inspired by Short Story we wanted to share the meaningful and inspirational gift of “Hope in a Box”.

The inspiration for “Hope in a Box” is the story of Sadako. Sadako was a  young Japanese girl who became very ill from the effects of the atomic bomb dropped upon her city near the end of WWII.

Bedridden in hospital, Sadako’s determination and spirit gave life to an ancient legend that promised anyone who folded one thousand origami cranes would be granted one wish.  It was Sadako’s desire to wish for good luck, long life, peace, and a recovery from her illness.

On the 25th of October 1955, Sadako passed away surrounded by loved ones and family.

Although Sadako’s one thousand paper cranes did not save her life, they 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 as a symbol of their desire for peace.

From this inspirational story, ArtSHIINE is collaborating with the founders of Short Story, Wil & Caro, to feature “Hope in a Box” in the ArtSHINE store.

We all have hopes, wishes, and dreams in our life. At ArtSHINE we’re here to help you accomplish your goals and dreams.
