Join "A Prayer for Japan" on Sunday, April 24

A Prayer for Japan is now ready to go and we are inviting everyone to join.  The event will be this Easter Sunday, April 24, 2011 at the Soccer Field of the Quezon City Memorial Circle.  The Facebook event page is FOUND HERE.

The nuclear alert in Japan is now at Level 7 and could even surpass Chernobyl. With Japan facing several hardships, Tsunami, Earthquake and nuclear crisis it is just fitting to offer our prayer and support for them.

Cosplay is part of Japanese culture and hence as cosplayers we are supposed to show our support.

So what is this event?

We will be inviting cosplayers, Otaku and the general public to bring a white candle and a crane... and then at 6:00pm we invite everyone to light a candle with us and hold a crane as we pray together for Japan.

What is the prayer?

Use this as your FB profile pic to promote the event.
It will be a prayer chain, meaning we will connect each of our personal prayer. Sample prayer chain below:

* Person 1: I pray for peace, I pray for Japan
* Person 2: Sana ay wala nang mamatay, I pray for Japan...
* Person 200: I pray for food, I pray for Japan.

Why a candle?

A candle symbolizes light and hope.

Why a crane?

The cranes are large to very large birds, including the world's tallest flying bird, while Origami is a traditional art in Japan.

The crane, a traditional symbol of luck in Japan, was popularized as a peace symbol by the story of Sadako Sasaki (1943–1955), a girl who died as a result of the atomic bomb exploded over Hiroshima in 1945. According to the story, popularized through the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, in her last illness she started folding paper cranes, inspired by the Japanese saying that one who folded a thousand paper cranes was granted a wish.

Her wish was that she’d be able to run again. By the time she died two months later, Sadako had folded 1,300 cranes. Paper was in short supply but Sadako was resourceful; she used medicine wrappers and asked other patients for wrapping paper from their presents.

This day we fold cranes to give a wish that Japan will recover again and that we are one with them.

This program is still in line with our objective to bring Cosplay to the hearts of other people and uplift it to a new level.
