BOC Founder Jean Gibbon

The October Southern Flames was attended by invited speaker and friend of many, Jean Gibbon, founder of Beads of Courage. 

It was an opportunity to ask questions, like “ what kinds of beads are in the most demand?” Or “ if I don’t have a lot of time on the torch to make beads how can I still help?” And “ what is the best way to stay informed on the various programs or projects throughout the year?”  

Jean explained the many different BOC programs and types of participants.  She provided a very clear and helpful slide-presentation with lots of great photos of smiling children with their beads. 

She told us how different sizes, shapes, and levels of detail were used in these different programs.  And she inspired us all to participate by making more beads and encouraging others to do so as well!

It was a fun meeting and informative meeting, and was well attended ( virtually, of course). 

Please check out the BOC website at https://beadsofcourage.org/,  and get inpired to make wonderful beads!
