Origami in Video Games

A friend of mine is currently playing a Japanese video game called Persona 4. The basic premise of the Persona games is a little beyond my grasp, as half of it seems to be micromanaging the schedule and social life of a Japanese teen while the other half is fighting ridiculous monsters in alternate realities. In Persona 4, the alternate reality is accessed by entering a big screen TV in the shopping mall....

Anyway, the reason I bring this up is that in micromanaging the schedule, you get to choose activities for your teen to do. Some are jobs and some are not. While going about the game, my friend ran into this:

If your character has Diligence, they can use it to earn Understanding. By folding origami cranes! I immediately remembered about the Cranestorm project that is still ongoing. For that project, you can donate cranes and have it counted as volunteer hours. Origami Minnesota has been helping out with that for a few months now. If you want to be a part of it, definitely check it out!
