Horse Bead of Courage


Horses are a popular sight in December, pulling a jingle-bell sleigh and giddy-upping in a wonderland of snow. Traditionally, horses represent strength, grace, nobility and freedom. In Chinese Astrology, 2014 is the Year of the Horse.

The Horse Bead is dedicated to Beads of Courage member Liviya Anderson, who has adored horses since she was two years old. Liviya was diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia at age six and was treated with ATG, a purified animal serum that came from a horse.

Liviya says, "Horses are courage to me. If horses didn't have the courage to give blood, if they ran away, that would not show courage. But, lining up outside a barn, knowing they have to get a needle in order to give blood, that is courageous and because horses are courageous, they saved my life."

Each year, Liviya's mom Rebekah and other moms in North Carolina hold a fundraising event called the Mom Prom. It's the ultimate Ladies' Night Out for charity and proceeds benefit the Aplastic Anemia & MDS Research Foundation and Beads of Courage, among other organizations. Since 2010, the Mom Prom has raised over $30,000 for Beads of Courage programs in North Carolina.

It's only natural that Livia's dream bead was a horse. The Horse Bead was made by Jessi, a Beads of Courage member, and presented to Liviya at the 2012 Mom Prom.

This month, make a donation of $25 to Beads of Courage and receive a majestic Horse Bead to add to your collection. The Horse Bead may be sent as a gift by entering the Shipping Address of the recipient when ordering. Shipping is FREE in the continental US! Please select "International" when ordering if recipient is located outside the continental US.
