Courage Tiger’s Road Trip Day 39: Your Bead Went On a Road Trip! #TravelTuesday

Happy #TravelTuesday everybody! I have been traveling so much, and I found someone who has been traveling like me! Bob is one of our amazing supporters, and he is from Tucson, Arizona (also like me!). Bob took an amazing road trip on the way to babysitting his granddaughter in Illinois! In late March, he left Tucson and headed towards Chicago so he could watch his beautiful granddaughter!

Bob clipped on his Carry a Bead and took it to so many wonderful places! He took different routes that took him to all kinds of national parks, monuments, and memorials. He took pictures at each place he visited and his Carry a Bead was there each step of the way. He even started getting copies of the park maps and informational pamphlets to add to an amazing scrapbook. At the end of his amazing road trip, he included a map of the National Park system, and highlighted the route he took, so that we could see where their carried bead has gone!

Thank you, Bob, for Making Courage Roar! Bob took a Carry a Bead on a long trip, but anyone can Carry a Bead on any occasion that is meaningful to them. Support Beads of Courage and our programs by funding the mission during the 9th Annual Bead Challenge!
