Beads of Courage

The Florida Glass Dragons are proud to sponsor the Beads of Courage program. Every bead tells a story of strength, honor and hope for a young child. It is designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Through the program children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate their milestones. Members can donate to the Beads of Courage of courage program by contacting, Glenda Long Or bring your beads to our next meeting.
