Beads of Courage May Bead Drive

Back in May, Beads of Courage sent out a call for bead donations, asking artists to donate at least 50 handmade beads by the end of month of May. The charity is an arts in medicine program that allows children with serious illnesses to tell their story through beads.

 I cleaned out my donation drawer and bead bowl and came up with more than 60!


What was cool about this year's bead drive is that Beads of Courage mailed all the bead makers who donated a Beads of Courage t-shirt!



I'm so happy to have the shirt to wear to our upcoming Beads of Courage fund raising event in September!

Sounds really nice. Do you know if they post pictures of what the kids have made with the beads? It would be nice to see what they come up with, don't you think?
