It's that time of day... time for me to distract you from these bead-hunks...
at least momentarily.
Thank you for the out-pouring of e-mail love (and coffee love too!)
TODAY, I'd like you to show some love to the folks at Beads of Courage.
If you don't know who they are or what they do, click the video link a little way down on the right-hand sidebar. (you might want to grab a tissue because it's a touching story about how beads can change lives... really!)
Already know about Beads of Courage and want to help??
("yes! yes! yes!" you say!! Because how can you say NO to Bead-hunks AND cute kids??!!)
Here's what to do...
1. Buy Beads! (we're all good at that and they've got some GREAT art beads on their site!) Click here to buy Artist-Made beads from Beads of Courage
2. Give Money! It takes funds to buy the non-art beads that the kids are given as well as funds to start programs in new hospitals. Anything you can give will help. Click here to donate
3. Give Beads!
- Artist-made beads are used in the program and given to the kids, follow the guidelines on the B.O.C. site to find out the particulars, but they need LOTS of these. Info on how to donate Artist-made beads (glass and polymer clay)
- Need to de-stash? They take manufactured beads as well to use in other parts of the Arts in Medicine program. There is information at the bottom this page of their website...Info on How to Donate Beads
Donating beads/funds to Beads of Courage is tax deductible... so it's a WIN WIN!!!
