You probably remember right around the holidays when Taylor Swift broke the news that her mother had received a cancer diagnosis. And I’m sure you know about the deep connection Taylor has with her fans.
So check out what these Salt Lake City girls did. KSL.com tells the story:
Sam Brady, 11, and her sister Jo, 8, first wanted to do something to win tickets to one of Taylor’s concerts and came up with the idea to make paper cranes:
Salt Lake City resident Laurie Brady said her oldest daughter, 11-year-old Sam Brady, recently gained an interest in origami. Sam learned how to fold paper cranes and Brady told her about the book, “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes,” based on the Japanese legend that if someone folds 1,000 paper cranes they will be granted a wish.
So they decided to increase it to1,989 cranes (in honor of Taylor’s newest album, 1989) and wish for concert tickets. But when they found out Taylor’s mother, Andrea Finlay Swift, had been diagnosed with cancer, they decided to change their plans and give the cranes to Andrea.
