Welcome to Cranes by Kelsey!


Cranes by Kelsey (formerly known as Cranes for Change) is an origami jewelry fundraiser project I started which aimed to support NYC's Chinatown community by donating 100% of its proceeds to charity. In its run from August 2020 - November 2021, Cranes for Change raised and donated $25,000 towards this goal. 

I am concluding this project!! I want to wholeheartedly thank everyone for supporting me and my efforts. Grad school has been difficult and I need to focus on studying. I may do more things for Cranes for Change in the future, but for now I think I’m going to pause and work on some other projects.


If you’d still like to purchase earrings from me, you can still order from this website, but please know that the money will now be going to my very depleted late-night ramen fund, and will probably help me buy that 300-page housing policy textbook I’m going to need next semester.

Cheers, Kelsey <3  (11/14/21)
