Beads of Courage


I'm behind on everything this weekend, it seems. Behind on laundry, bead listing, bead making, house stuff, posting on blogger, reading my daily blogs! But I wanted to show you a photo of some beads I am sending Beads of Courage this week. You can read about it by clicking the link, but basically the program provides donated beads to children in various stages of cancer treatment. After each treatment, they receive a bead to string on their necklace, to mark off the procedures they have gotten through! It's a great program, and I wish I had done this sooner. But better late than never, I guess! They are all swirly beads made on a 3/32" mandrel for ease of stringing.

Sue, that is such a good program and it is so good of you to do this. Did you know that I used to work in a cancer hospital in Australia? I know from personal experience just how meaningful this sort of thing is for a cancer patient. Especially, children. Thank you Sue for contributing to such a very good cause.

That's so cool. Each time they get a bead they feel a sense of achievement. You are one kindhearted person!
