2013 Spring Classes Just Posted!

I just updated my calendar for my classes next spring: Fresno, CA; Las Vegas, and Florida!  2013 is bringing new class material at Glass Craft Expo, and a solid favorite class at Scarab Glass in March.   My class at Bead Camp in April is sure to be a blast: I'll be teaching for 5 days.  I can hardly wait!

What is TEAM Beads of Courage?
It's the connection between the caring and compassionate individuals and the courageous members of Beads of Courage.
What do they do as a TEAM Beads of Courage Member?
Each TEAM member, carries a select number of beads as an intentional act of kindness during a practice, event, race, concert, etc.
After the beads have been carried and all the carrier's good intentions have been soaked up in them, they write a note of encouragement on a card provided and send the beads back to Beads of Courage where they begin their journey to a BOC Member. One bead will be selected by the carrier to keep as a gift from Beads of Courage in honor and acknowledgement of their own courage and as a reminder of their compassionate act of kindness for a child coping with serious illness.
Why do we believe in TEAM Beads of Courage?
We believe that simple acts of kindness go a long way to provide a boost of encouragement during your treatment journey.
Who is carrying the beads in the event photo?
TEAM Beads of Courage Member, Gavin DeGraw, has carried these beads with him during his first week of his Dancing with the Stars journey. Each week he is on the show, he will carry a different set of beads. More weeks=more beads! VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!
What should I do with this email?
We would love for you to print it, post it , and share it with Beads of Courage Members so that they can enter the Facebook Event to receive a Bead of Courage carried by Gavin DeGraw.

CBS Sunday Morning, Beads of Courage, and MZ!

CBS Sunday Morning featured Beads of Courage in a 7 minute December segment.  I had the pleasure of getting to talk to CBS Sunday Morning folks while making beads on camera (it's right at the start of the segment)!  They did a great job honoring Beads of Courage, and helping to educate the public about our mission.  THANK YOU to both CBS Sunday Morning and Beads of Courage for including me!
