Courage Tiger’s Road Trip Day 9: Bead Challenge Update

Hi everybody! I get to enjoy the sandy beaches of California for one more day, and I wanted to take this chance to give you a Bead Challenge update!

Did you know you can participate in Bead Challenge by fundraising for your state? The 2017 Bead Challenge features a friendly competition among all 50 states to earn the title of Most Inspired State.  How?  By raising the most funds and donating the most beads during Bead Challenge 2017!  The winning state will be honored with a commemorative Beads of Courage legacy bead showcasing their state. 

Who will the winner be this year? As of today, Arizona is in first place, and Texas is a close second. Help your state win by donating here. What would a bead representing your state look like? 

Your donation helps reach the fundraising goals of Bead Challenge 2017! That’s it from me today. I’m back on the road tomorrow, check back then for a story from Nevada!

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. As the official Beads of Courage mascot, Courage Tiger is visiting all 50 states to highlight the incredible work our organization does by sharing stories of our courageous members, families, clinicians, and the caring community of artists and supporters who make our vital work possible. Please get involved in Bead Challenge 2017 by visiting www.beadchallenge.org today. Sign up to PARTICIPATE as a fundraiser, CREATE glass beads, or DONATE to the cause.
