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!
