The students at C.W. Post spent the evening folding 1,000 paper cranes.
They were inspired by 10-year-old cancer patient, David Heard, who is trying to get 200,000 of these birds made.
According to a Japanese legend, whoever folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted one wish.
David wants to send 1,000 origami birds to each pediatric cancer center in the country as a symbol of hope.
