Making and Donating Beads for Beads of Courage
Beads of Courage is an organization dedicated to helping children with serious illnesses cope with these illnesses through the use of beads. Beads mark the milestones in each child's journey through their illness.
Beads of Courage are beads given to children when they have shown courage above and beyond and for when a child needs a boost. Here's a link to Lori Greenberg's post regarding Acts of Courage Beads.
A special section on Lampwork Etc. is dedicated soley to Beads of Courage.
After a child's course of treatment is finished, they are given a purple heart.
Should a parent loose their beloved child, they are given a butterfly to commemorate the life of their angel.
If you are not a bead maker, you can still support Beads of Courage through a monetary donation. Beads of Courage needs you!
