There are also a number of very special courage beads collected along the way. These beads, handmade and donated by Japanese bead artists, are given during a particularly challenging time for the child … not as a reward, but as a reminder that they have been courageous enough to get through that challenge!
Shine On! Kids provides all of the materials and training to implement and ensure the ongoing quality of the program at each of the 23 hospitals currently executing Beads of Courage® in Japan.
