Courage Tiger’s Road Trip Day 17: Flying with Courage!

I am still here in Seattle to share a story about one of our celebrity ambassadors, Brandon! Brandon has been a part of the Carry a Bead program since 2014. Guess what Brandon does? He is a wingsuit flier! He goes out and jumps off cliffs, skyscrapers, and other high places. He then glides along his route and even carries beads while he does it! He has been base-jumping since he was 23, and has not stopped since. He has gone on all sorts of adventures with his beads, and even posted a video about them! I wish I was brave enough to join him on one of his adventures!

Brandon told me her carries beads because they inspire him! He said, “Being different and courageous is what makes you so special. You truly inspire me every day and give me the courage I need.  Stay Strong and know that so many people are thinking about you.

Brandon is one of many Beads of Courage supporters that Makes Courage Roar! Be sure to participate in Bead Challenge and contribute today! You don’t have to go base-jumping with your Carry a Bead to inspire a child. Help make healing happen by getting your own Carry a Bead kit today, and check back tomorrow for an awesome #TravelTuesday story!

Courage Tiger’s 2017 Road Trip is a feature of the 9th Annual Bead Challenge, a three-month nationwide fundraiser and beadraiser for Beads of Courage.
