Cranes for Courage

Emily Comstock

Cranes for Courage is a community initiative comprised of a team of students, student-athletes, friends, and family members. We each make the cranes, write on the wings of the cranes, and ship the cranes to mental health hospitals, a nonprofit, and Northwestern University. Cranes for Courage’s mission is to bring hope and love to others through the medium of a crane. Be it in a mental health hospital or a classroom, the cranes are touching lives and changing perspectives.

It’s super easy to get involved! You could make between 5-10 cranes a week, write sayings on already made cranes, purchase paper, pens (Sharpies, extra fine tip), or stamps. The time commitment would be about an hour a week, if that!

Rainbow Hospice

Rainbow Hospice is a site where volunteers personally interact one-on-one with patients in a palliative care setting. They will be assigned the same patients throughout the entire year, whom they will visit weekly, build a relationship with, and bring comfort to. Volunteers are expected to complete a one-day training session and complete a physical and background check (which, along with transportation, will be taken care of by the site-leaders and not something volunteers will have to set up on their own).
