1000 Acts of Kindness uses cranes to inspire us to create a ripple effect, making the world a better place one compassionate act at a time. Our hope at World Karma Project is that the cranes inspire 1000 acts of kindness that resonate into the world. Spreading kindness creates a ripple effect for the betterment of ourselves and makes the people around us “awesome.”

1000 Acts of Kindness art installation project will be in NYC, Beverly Hills, Boston, Cambridge, Vermont and the Palo Alto, CA from August 12th to September 9th, 2013

Marimekko Visual teams will install 1000 cranes as a centrepiece in its flagship stores: Library Room for NYC and Ball Room for Beverly Hills. 100 crane installations will be featured in window displays for Boston, Cambridge, Vermont and the Palo Alto, CA locations.

“Marimekko was first introduced to the United States by the architect Benjamin C. Thompson, and made famous by Jacqueline Kennedy, who bought eight Marimekko dresses which she wore throughout the 1960 US Presidential campaign.

Marimekko is a Finnish company based in Helsinki and has made important contributions to fashion, especially in the 1960s. It is particularly noted for brightly colored printed fabrics and simple styles, used both in women’s garments and in home furnishings. ” wikipedia.org

“Marimekko products are sold in approximately 40 countries. In 2012, brand sales of Marimekko products worldwide amounted to approximately EUR 187 million and the company’s net sales were EUR 88 million. The number of Marimekko stores totalled 108 at the year end.”  Marimekko Corporation
