Beads of Courage


A friend sent me a newspaper article about this amazing program: Beads of Courage . I think this is a remarkable creative and tangible way of not only reaching out to children, siblings and families at a time of real need-- it also teaches them how to own and tell the story of their journey using colorful beads that mark milestones along the way. 

Please read, listen and read about Beads of Courage and visit their blog to learn some individual stories. Then pass on the link to people you know who can be helped by this information themselves--or have friends or relatives in need of it. 
And, consider donating or challenging a few friends to donate with you--perhaps in memory of someone. 

Here is a list of Hospitals that Support Beads of Courage.

The story of how it all started is also found in this article, Beads of Hope, in Ladies Home Journal
