More and More Paper Cranes for Japan

I just read another update on the Students Rebuild's Paper Cranes for Japan project.  Last time when I checked, which was about a week ago, they had received over 610,000 cranes, well over their goal of 100,000.  This tireless effort from all over the world triggered Bezos Family Foundation to decide to double its initial donation to $400,000.  Since then, Students Rebuild continued receiving more and more cranes, reaching 1,000,000!  They had also just received anonymous donation of $100,000, raising $500,000 in total for Japan!
