The details are pretty simple. The kids receive a special bead every time they come through a treatment or some milestone event. A red one for a blood transfusion, one that glows in the dark for a radiation treatment etc. The sad part is that some kids get as many as 500 or more. :( What they are wanting is a lidded bowl/box about 3" deep by 7" in dia. or at least a similar volume, something functional not decorative,(small kids will carry,play with, use daily) they would like "Beads of Courage" burned, painted or otherwise decorated somewhere on the vessel if possible, and they would like you to include a hand written note with wishes or a prayer or whatever to give the child/parent a special connection to the maker.
