Donating beads to Beads of Courage should not be just about sending off mistakes or beads that turned out down right ugly (we've all been there).
Remember the to the kids that get your bead, and their families, this is a meaningful experience; one that will last a lifetime for them whether (hopefully) long or short.
So the idea is to give Beads of Courage beads that is your best work, albeit work done to please children and teens.
The tutorials found here are designed to help you create, using your own imigination and talent, good Beads of Courage beads. Good luck and . . .
Thanks for your good work and your caring, from Soda Lime Times and all the other contributing beadmakers, everywhere.
