Thank you, Sy! That is a beautiful, useful, solar-powered design! I've just ordered one through the IndieGoGo crowd-funding site. If only it were ready for Halloween tomorrow! I especially like the fact that my order includes a donation of a SoLight to an Indonesian family affected by the 2018 tsunami. Our Princeton Public Library Origami group got its start shortly after the terrible 2004 Indonesian tsunami. A kid at an origami program at Cotsen Children's Library, Princeton University, asked me how to make an origami Wave. That was the inspiration for a series of tsunami relief fundraisers using origami. Our group emerged from that effort--and members recently contributed generously to UNICEF's tsunami relief efforts. (This reminds me that I should send the Simple Wave model to World Origami Days: http://www.origami.gr.jp/WOD/2018/applicationform.pdf) Karen 10/30/2018 Karen Reeds, co-ringleader Princeton Public Library Origami Group Affiliate of Origami USA, http://origamiusa.org/ We usually meet 2nd Wednesday of the month, 6:30-8pm, First Floor, Quiet Room. Free! We provide paper! All welcome! (Kids under 8, please bring a grown-up.)
