Hey guys!!!  Did you know that Beads Of Courage is in the running for a $25,000 Grant?

And Guess what!  You can help!  The top 10 organizations will all win grants! 
I have watched as the beading community has pulled together and cast their votes for Beads of Courage.  Right now BOC is in 14th place!  That's only 4 places away from winning the grant!  I have voted daily and watched Beads of Courage rise in rank from place 31 to place 14!

This is the same organization where we at Beads-of-Clay will be donating our swap beads next month.  Come on guys!  It just takes a second and you can vote everyday!

Here is a little information on Beads-of-Courage for those of you not familiar with their mission--

Through the Beads of Courage Program children coping with life threatening conditions received colorful beads each which symbolize the many treatments and procedures they overcome. Their Beads of Courage collection serves as a tangible, visible symbol of their accomplishments during a challenging treatment journey. Funding provided by Pepsi will help us provide the Beads of Courage Program as a source of support for children in 10 children's hospitals wishing to provide the Program as a source of psychosocial support. The Beads of Courage Program strengthens resilience and quality of life for children coping with cancer and other serious illness.
