TEAM Beads of Courage – NASA

by admin on April 16, 2010

We are really excited about all of the beads that were entered and will be going to children in the Beads of Courage program!

In case if you are looking for the ios 6.1 jailbreak or clash of clans cheats you can get it very easily.

Thank you to everyone who entered our contest to get beads sent on the US Space Shuttle.  Did you know that there are only three missions left and then it will be retired?  We feel so fortunate for this opportunity!  Here’s a little glimpse of what has been going on…

These are ‘our’ astronauts. Read more about them and their upcoming mission:

‘Our Mission’ is scheduled for a May 14th launch date.  We’re keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes as planned, weather holds up, etc.

These are the beads that make up our 8.1 oz of beads allowed:

After tallying the jury scores I added each bead to the scale, highest scores first, until we reached the 8 oz mark.

Here the beads are, getting ready to be packaged up and overnighted:

Included in the package were 7 TEAM Beads of Courage beads with TEAM Beads of Courage charms, along with cards with the astronauts name on them as a member of TEAM Beads of Courage – NASA, the mission number and location.  The cards explain that:

TEAM Beads of Courage connects caring individuals with courageous kids through a random act of kindness.  Our hope is that you receive a BOOST of enCOURAGEment from TEAM BOC!

The extra beads for the astronauts are our ‘thank you’ for being a part of TEAM Beads of Courage, as well as a reminder of the kids that they are going to be enCOURAGE-ing through their mission.  Can you imagine knowing that there are astronauts in SPACE thinking about you?  Wow.

There is also an additional bead, charm and card for the honorary member of TEAM Beads of Courage – NASA, Jamie Newton. Jamie is the father of a child in the Beads of Courage program and made all of this possible. Thank you Jamie and Sydney!

Congratulations to the artists with beads heading out on the Shuttle:

We will be showing you more in the days to come!

I would like to begin making bead projects for this great ministry. Could I do it for people here in WV?

Hi Sandy! Beadmakers around the world make beads for Beads of Courage and we’d LOVE to have yours too! The way it works is that any beads that you make are sent to our headquarters in Tucson and then they’re distributed throughout our current 70 hospitals around the world. What type of beads do you make? Is there a local group near you?
