Charmant is celebrating 25 years in Europe with events throughout 2012 to collect money for a Japanese charity that helps children orphaned from last year's earthquake and tsunami, as well as people in refugee camps. Charmant hopes to raise at least €25,000 – €1,000 for each year of its existence – by selling origami cranes, a symbol of healing, happiness and benevolence.
