Hi Friends and Family!
I'm glad you've taken a few minutes to check out my fundraiser page for Beads of Courage! Sis and I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks and thought that it would be fun to do a fundraiser for our birthday!
As many of you know, Colin and I both work for this fabulous organization! Colin is the Program Director and I handle Communications. I have been so inspired by the COURAGE of children, teens and families impacted by serious illness. Not a day goes by that I don't sit motionless at what they are going through and at the same time I'm in awe of how they move forward each day with such COURAGE.
Thanks for taking the time to check out our page! For more information about Beads of Courage, check out www.beadsofcourage.org
About...BEADS OF COURAGE INC
Beads of Courage is passionate about providing innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care programs for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them.
Since March 2005, we have been working diligently to transform the treatment experience for children and teens coping with chronic, life threatening illness through our arts-in-medicine programs. Through Beads of Courage, children and teens are able to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.
In just 6 years since our inception, our organization has established our programs in over 90 children's hospitals in the United States, New Zealand and Japan. Our growth is evidence of the need for the type of support Beads of Courage provides for children and teens coping with serious illness.
We would love for you to also join TEAM Beads of Courage! You can setup your own fundraising page with your story as to why you are passionate about Beads of Courage and share it with everyone you know! That's the cool thing about Crowdrise, they make it really fun and easy to share!
