My third Beads of Courage box … this box is oak and walnut, about 6-1/2 inches high (plus the lid) and 5-1/2 inches in diameter.

Beads of Courage is a program designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with cancer, blood diseases, heart ailments and other serious illness. Every time they undergo an operation, treatment, or procedure they get a colorful bead they can add to a string of beads. Each bead has special meaning, and they need a place to keep them. For those not familiar with the Beads of Courage project, click here for complete information.

The boxes do not need to be turned … they can be flatwork as well. The organization has detailed guidelines for those who wish to turn/build boxes for the project. Click here for that information.

Very nice Gerry!

OK, you donate these to the cause… What do they do with them? Just put stuff in them?

Can they be any kind of boxes or items made of wood?
