Bead Pledge
« on: June 18, 2013, 05:16:26 PM »
Howdy, I meant to start this thread when I opened the Beadathon board and it slipped my mind, please forgive me being a bit slow with it. I know that there are a lot of people who would like to get involved with the Summer Beadathon this year but because of location or other commitments can't be here.

If you would like to get involved maybe you could consider doing a bead pledge and make a few beads for Beads of Courage at home? You could either send them to me to go in with the big parcel (PM me for my addy) or send them in direct to

Be Child Cancer Aware
2 Park Close, Wickford
Essex SS12 9EH

Donation form here

Please feel free to show any beads you make here  ;D

I gave some butterflies to Sue to give to you when I visited last, I've had a certifcate so I assume they've already been passed on thankyou. I haven't had a chance to make any more and it's unlikely I will before the Beadathon Sorry.

Silvered ivory is ok, it's no metallic surface glass. (Encased silver glass is ok).
