Beads of Courage Boxes
The contest for the June picnic will be to make a Beads of Courage Box. This was a great success last year, with lots of very creative entries. In the interim, we will also continue to accept Beads of Courage Boxes at any time, which David Wright will deliver to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
The box should be 6 to 8" in diameter, 3 to 4" tall, and have an easily removable lid with a child friendly finial. The words "Beads of Courage" should appear somehow on the box, either wood burned, painted, or otherwise permanently applied.
This is part of a national program to provide seriously ill children with a box to store the beads that they are awarded when they complete any portion of treatment, testing, surgery, or other activity in the hospital.
