Seven schools participated in Young Post's "From Hong Kong to Japan with Love" campaign for Save The Children (STC). Students at the schools made thousands of origami paper cranes, wrote hundreds of messages for the children in STC safe areas, and raised HK$5,524.50 in total. Donations from YP's team boosted the sum to HK$6,274.50. Save The Children Hong Kong will send the cranes and donations to STC Japan. The NGO's emergency relief team has set up a child-friendly space in Sendai, the worst-hit city. Children there can now play safely while their parents focus on rebuilding.
