For every $1 you donate, we will print 1 raffle ticket for you here at our shop and enter it into our Beads of Courage drawing. On October 1st, we will choose a winning ticket and that lucky person will win the lovely artist bear set shown here.
Aptly named "Please!", this alpaca fabric teddy bear set was created by Sandy Czaja of Notchlok Bears. We think the set perfectly describes the love and dedication shown every minute of every day by participants & families in the Beads of Courage program.
We're proud to support the Bead Challenge and we're thankful for your donations!
Teddy bear people are the BEST! Thank you!
