Teens Turn Love Of Origami Into Effort To Change World For The Better


TONIGHT. THE POP STARS ARE OFFICIALLY REUNITING AND WE’LL PERFORM THE BRAND-NEW SINGLE. YOU CAN CATCH THE LATE, LATE RIGHT HERE ON CBS 11 AT 11:35. WHEN THEIR DAD TAUGHT THEM THE ART OF ORIGAMI HE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A FUN HOBBY. BUT AS ISABELLA AND CATHERINE ADAMS FOLDED PAPER INTO ART, WHAT UNFOLDED WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP OTHERS, MIKE KINNEY SHARES THE STORY OF PAPER FOR WATER. LET’S LINE IT UP. THERE YOU GO. ORIGAMI IS THE JAPANESE ART OF PAPER FOLDING. IT’S JUST SOMETHING THAT EVERYBODY CAN DO. YOU’RE GOING TO FOLD IT OVER LIKE THAT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE SUPER GIFTED OR SKILLED AT IT AND YOU CAN STILL MAKE SOMETHING EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL OUT OF A SIMPLE SHEET OF PAPER. TODAY WE ARE AT NORTH PARK PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. AND IT’S A PAPER FOR WATER VOLUNTEERING EVENT, WE HAVE THEM ONCE A MONTH. YOU ARE GOING TO FOLD THIS DOWN. THIS ONE GOES THAT WAY. MY SISTER AND I ACTUALLY STARTED PAPER FOR WATER WHEN WE WERE FIVE AND 8 YEARS OLD. AND WE STARTED IT BECAUSE WE LEARNED THAT GIRLS OUR AGE OFTEN DON’T GET TO GO TO SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY ARE SICK FROM DIRTY WATER OR BECAUSE THEY SPEND THEIR ENTIRE DAY HAULING WATER. WE DECIDED WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT AND WE USED SOMETHING WE LOVE DOING WHICH IS ORIGAMI. TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES. OH, MY GOSH. LOOK HOW MUCH WE HAVE. WE DO MODULAR ORIGAMI SO INSTEAD OF ONE PIECE OF PAPER, EACH ORNAMENT TAKES USUALLY ABOUT 30 SHEETS OF PAPER, TODAY WE ARE MAKING THE STARS, THIS IS A FINISHED STAR, 30 SHEETS OF PAPER, AS A GROUP IT TOOK US ABOUT 10 MINUTES. IT’S GETTING EASIER. OVER THE PAST SEVEN YEARS, WE’VE RAISED OVER $1.6 MILLION IN HELPING TO FUND OVER 190 PROJECTS. WE ESTIMATE THAT WE HAVE POSITIVELY IMPACTED 60 TO 70,000 PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER. IT’S AMAZING AND IT KEEPS GETTING BETTER EVERY YEAR. IT’S BLOSSOMED AND GROWN FAR BEYOND OUR IMAGINATIONS AND IT’S JUST HELPED SO MANY PEOPLE. IT IS I THINK ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING FEELINGS EVER TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE REALLY, TRULY CHANGING PEOPLE’S LIVES. AMAZING YOUNG GIRLS WHO HAVE A HEART. IF YOU’D LIKE TO LEARN HOW YOU CAN VOLUNTEER TO HELP OR MAKE A DONATION WE HAVE POSTED A LINK ON OUR WEBSITE CBSDFW.COM. IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IN 2019 THIS IS STILL SUCH A NEED
