Save the Date


Once again, I am proud to join a group of artists who support a wonderful organization called Beads of Courage.   

What is the Beads of Courage Program?

The Program is a resilience-based intervention designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Through the program children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.

How it works

Upon enrollment each child is given the Beads of Courage bead color guide with a detachable membership card. Their Beads of Courage journey begins when each child is first given a length of string and beads that spell out their first name. Then, colorful beads, each representing a different treatment milestone are given to the child by their professional health care provider to add to their Beads of Courage collection throughout their treatment as determined by the Beads of Courage Bead Guide (available from Beads of Courage, Inc.)The Beads of Courage® Program is available for the following:

  • Cancer and Blood Disorders
  • Cardiac Conditions
  • Burn injuries
  • Neonatal ICU Families
  • Chronic Illness
All Program bead guides were developed in collaboration with experts in the field (nurses, doctors, child life specialists and social workers) so that each bead guide would reflect meaningful acknowledgment of a child’s treatment journey.
So, what do WE do?  
Each of us designs a hand made, unique art charm according to a theme.   This year’s theme is SOAR.   There should be some very cool charms in this auction.   Save the date!  It’s November 14th.   That’s when we will auction these charms and all proceeds will go to support Beads of Courage.   I’ll remind you again for sure.   You won’t be able to buy the art charms anywhere else.   They are very special.   And YOU will feel very special, helping children and families to cope with serious health issues.
