Sponsor A Bead During Bead Challenge
During Bead Challenge, a donation of $5 will Sponsor A Bead like those shown below. These artist-made beads are individually packaged and sent to Beads of Courage member hospitals as Act of Courage beads.
Children receive Act of Courage beads to honor their strength and courage during treatment-defining moments. Given at the bedside, these beads are spirit-lifting, which can be life-saving in the moment.
Sponsor A Bead during Bead Challenge to make healing happen. The more beads you sponsor, the more children you help!
