Beads of Courage!




This year my friend Lori Greenberg, after having worked with the non-profit Beads of Courage for some time, started their online Artist Gallery, ArtistsGive.com, to help them raise money for their programs.  Beads of Courage provides arts-in-medicine programs in over 100 hospitals around the world for children facing life-threatening illness. The program provides handmade beads for each treatment, procedure and milestone a child experiences in the process of treatment.  Each bead serves to honor their STRENGTH and COURAGE. Kids average 500 beads in the course of a cancer treatment!

You'll be able to find the BOC banner in the sidebar of Beading Arts...this link will take you to the ArtistsGive.com, the official online artists gallery for BOC, where you can select from dozens of handmade beads and finished jewelry.  All items on ArtistsGive.com and the Beads of Courage gallery are handmade by supporting artists and proceeds help support Beads of Courage programs as well as the arts and artists.
