Together, we make healing happen

Beads of Courage is a proud partner with organizations that recruit caring individuals to Carry A Bead:

  • The mission of Beads of Courage is to help children with serious illness record, tell and own their stories of courage. See how every bead given is a symbol of courage, honor and hope at www.BeadsofCourage.org.
  • “We believe there is no greater reward than working hard to make a difference in the life of another individual” – Palermo Heart to Heart
  • Proceeds raised from the Carry A Bead Program help us to provide the Beads of Courage Program to children and teens coping with devastating illnesses at hospitals in your very own communities.
