Default We won the Pepsi Challenge. THANK YOU!

Hi everyone.

Beads of Courage finished in second place in the Pepsi challenge and that means that we will be receiving $25,000 to serve at least 10,000 more kids around the world who are facing and battling life-threatening illnesses.

Words cannot begin to express what I am feeling right now. The funny thing is, while the money is great, I am more overwhelmed (as I have often been these last two months) with the support that this community has once again shown for "one of their own."

While Beads of Courage could be possible without artists, it would NOT be what it is today without all of you. The heart, prayers, artistry, compassion, dedication, support....and on and on...of everyone who places a finger into this pot makes the Beads of Courage programs powerful in it's mission, outreach, quality and standards.

I just know that with every bead that is made, every click of the mouse that has something to do with promoting, supporting (even voting for) Beads of Courage that thoughts and prayers go out to the kids and families who are touched by our program as well...and that energy oozes out of this program.

I could go ON and ON and ON about all of this but I just want you to all know how TRULY grateful I am, and all of Beads of Courage is, for everything that you do and your consistent support and belief in what we are doing.

THANK YOU!

This is Great News. But I knew we would.
We are a tenacious bunch of artists.
And I think we all deserve a pepsi.. LOL
Everytime I hear a can opening, I will think of Beads of Courage.

Oh Lori.. question can we try for the 50 grand next time? Or is this a one time shot...

I don't know if mine did. Not so long ago they stopped taking votes from outside the US.
