The Toy Crane Project: Helping Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Children launch toy crane prizes and stuffed animal drive for Oklahoma tornado victims

WOODSTOCK, Va., June 13, 2013 -- With the help of parents, Jason and Kodi Wright, three siblings in Woodstock, Va. have launched The Toy Crane Project. The initiative gathers toy crane prizes and other stuffed animals for children in Oklahoma affected by the recent string of tornados.

"My kids have always loved those toy crane claw games," Jason Wright said. "They win at an astonishing rate. My 9-year-old son Kason is especially lucky. I always tell my wife that if dropping out of elementary school and turning pro were an option, our son would hold a press conference, hire an agent and line up sponsorship deals."
