Be a Helper!

“Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” – Mr. Rogers

Be a Helper to a child coping with serious illness through the simple act of carrying Beads of Courage in your neighborhood.

You don’t have to run a marathon or climb Mt. Everest to Carry a Bead! The beads you carry and return will be given to children on their tough treatment days to encourage them to keep fighting and remind them to always look for the helpers.

For a limited time only,
the Be a Helper Bundle contains
TWO Carry a Bead Kits!

That means YOU can encourage two Beads of Courage kids yourself, or recruit a friend to Be a Helper, too. Each kit contains colorful beads that we curated especially for this bundle. We want to see these beads in your neighborhood!

We have a goal set for 1,000 Helpers carrying beads in neighborhoods around the world! Let’s start a movement! Carry a Bead and share your photos on social media using the hashtag #carryabead.

We want to see your pets, your people, and the charm of your neighborhood. Together, let’s bring beauty to Beads of Courage members hospitalized across the globe.
