Check it out.  The 24 beads made on the day of the challenge.  I had hoped to make more.

The last 2 pictures are of beads from my stash not being used for anything special so picked the bigger ones and decided to donate these as well..  the total sent 180 beads sent to beads of courage.   Such a wonderful organization, and pleased to be a part of it all.

Beads of Courage Bead Challenge information

It has been way too long since I've posted on my blog.  Today I want to share information about a Bead Challenge for Beads of Courage Organization..  

This amazing cause is heading a fundraiser for Beads of Courage.   These beads help a child go through their journey of treatment.  Each accomplishment or step in their healing and treatment is symbolized by a beautiful glass bead.  Their special necklace can pinpoint every step of the way.

I wish I could physically be there at the pittsburgh glass center.  
Unfortunately I won't be there, but at least I can take the pledge and promise to torch and make beads  on september 15 th along with all the other lampworkers that day.  

I will post my  batch I create and will mail them in as soon as they are ready to go.  I can't wait to create special colorful beads for these children..  I have space ships, kitty, doggie, hearts and butterfly ideas in my head.. I hope these beads can add a little light into their lives.   I promise to post a picture before mailing out..
