4th Annual Badges and Boots Campaign
Calling all first responders!


We're recruiting first responders to Carry Beads of Courage! Wear your bead for a day, and then the Beads of Courage program in Pennsylvania will donate it to a child coping with serious illness. When you carry Beads of Courage you remind a child in a fight for life that they are not alone.


Your $20 Carry A Bead kit includes:

  • A story card
  • A matched set of beads (one for you and one for the child)
  • The child's bead is ready for you to carry and wear proudly on a safety pin for a day
  • A backpack clip with your matched bead to keep and remember a brave child by
  • A Beads of Courage sticker
