Carry a Bead

Carry a Bead (CAB) is a fundraising program that supports the mission of Beads of Courage: “Provide innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care programs for children coping with serious illness, their families, and the health care providers who care for them.”

It’s as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. CARRY:  Purchase a CAB kit. It contains a pair of matched beads with accompanying story card.
  2. CONNECT: Carry or wear the beads an adventure big or small, then return one bead along with your story card. The bead will be given to a child on a tough treatment day or to celebrate a treatment milestone.
  3. COLLECT:  Keep one bead to symbolize your shared strength.
