Glass Beads of Courage 9.14.13

Welcome Glass Bead fans! Today is a special day as we are celebrating Beads of Courage!
This is an arts in medicine charity that allows children with serious illnesses to tell the story of their treatment path. Colorful beads symbolize and commemorate milestones of achievement on their journey.

Many glass bead makers donate beads to the Beads of Courage program.We are featuring the beads of Debbie Altman of All My Beads. She has been a really busy bee making fun beads for the program and has shared lots of info on her blog:

Today and next Saturday,  glass bead artisans are coming together for a Bead Challenge. They will make beads just for the charity. And if you don't live in one of the cities where the events are being held, you can sign up to torch from home!

In honor of this amazing charity, today, instead of sharing beads for sale, we have asked our artists to share beads going to or recently donated to Beads of Courage.  We hope you enjoy sharing in this endeavor with us!

If you are interested in making a donation to Beads of Courage, you can do so via this link
