Hi Deb.

From our Program Director:

If the child is under 5 years old the parent is responsible for the program. The caregivers instruct the family on enrollment of this responsibility and we have not had any incidences.

Another hole size question.

I know you prefer 3/32 but would you accept 5/64?

This thrills me because I have been working on a Free Critters Tutorial in hopes of encouraging fun bead making for the Newbies & Intermediate group at this link:

Candace, thanks so much for the GREAT info!!! I try to donate a zip-lock baggie worth of beads every month and now I feel like I have a "to-do" list of themed beads to work on

Which is great because I get lost without lists....

And Kristena, I'll definitely check out the "critter bead" tutorial!! I am a newbie so any tuts on themed beads are more than welcome, free or for sale

Hi fellow lampworkers'
I just joined Lampwork Ect. I am very interested in BOC as I have 5-10lbs. of beads that are very nice but not worth more than $2.00 apiece. I would rather donate them to the children instead of just leaving them in a box.
Regards Carl D.

Hi Carl,
Your donation would be most welcome. Be sure to fill out the donation form and include it inside the package when you send your beads. You'll receive a Thank You card and a receipt for your tax-deductible donation.
Thanks for all you do for Beads of Courage!

Robert

This was good to read. I made a cupcake and an ice cream cone before I read this so I will make more.

Nice to see these tips. I've got a collection of beads I'm saving up for BoC.
