Beads of Courage returns to El Tour, always dedicated to improving the quality of life for children

We love having Beads of Courage back with us. It’s been a long-standing and committed nonprofit of El Tours for years.

And it typifies everything that’s right in the world: dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and teens coping with serious illness, their families, and the clinicians who care for them through our Arts-in-Medicine Programs.

It’s a Tucson-based organization!

According to its website, Beads of Courage, Inc. – since 2005 – has established collaborative partnerships in caring with hundreds of hospitals nationally and internationally and worked with several community organizations to make healing happen through the use of beads as a historical art form.

Through their programs, they provide the opportunity for COURAGE to be honored, HOPE to be given, and JOY to be experienced.

Mission accomplished given you see the many smiles the beads – and necklaces – provide/create.

Their goals are:

  • To transform the bedside experience of caring for children and teens with serious illness through innovative Arts-in-Medicine Programs;
  • To model collaborative strategies to strengthen human connectedness through the gift of beads that bestow honor and express human caring;
  • To contribute to the science, practice, and implementation of evidence-based interventions.
