Beads of Courage is an innovative, heartfelt non-profit organization bringing light into the lives of thousands of deserving children battling cancer or serious medical illnesses through the gift of art. Kids who have serious illnesses in participating hospitals get to choose a bead to represent each procedure they go through.
Their mom says: “We received Asher’s sibling beads today. They are wonderful! Thank you so much for allowing Asher a way to tell his special story of walking alongside his big brother Benjamin.”
Not only is it special for the children to receive the beads, the artists are honored to make them…
“All the admiration goes to the kids and families. Sometimes the kids end up with necklaces that are hundreds of beads long. So grateful to not have had to deal with a situation like this. My part is nothing.” – Kerry Collett, CeltCraft Designs.
It is moving and powerful to see bead artists in the glass community pull through in an extraordinary way for this cause. For more information or to donate, visit BeadsofCourage.org.
