Honored Tucson Supporters: We are proud to introduce our brand-new Polymer Clay Bead Making Kits! These kits are the latest in our line of Community Art Collaborations, offer caring individuals like you the opportunity to create the beads we need to help children who participate in the Beads of Courage program.

One of the most meaningful beads given to children receiving Beads of Courage is a handmade polymer clay bead known as a Member’s Choice bead. This special bead celebrates the long-awaited day that a child is discharged from the hospital, sometimes after weeks or months away from the comforts of home.

Each Polymer Clay Bead Making Kit includes enough materials and supplies for you to create 24 Member's Choice beads. After making the beads, you will return 20 beads and the matching art cards to Beads of Courage and keep 4 beads for your own collection. Each bead and art card will be lovingly packaged and sent to children's hospitals in Tucson and beyond.

Order these fun polymer kits for you to take home and make beads following the easy step-by-step instructions.
Starting Tuesday, September 8, we will have 25 kits available each week for a donation of just $15, which covers the cost of materials and supports our arts-in-medicine mission.

By placing an order below, kits will be reserved for you on a first-come, first-served basis and must be picked up at our Tucson Headquarters at 3230 N Dodge Blvd. Pick up is available Monday-Saturday 10 AM - 3 PM and must be returned within 10 days, along with your completed beads and art cards.

We are kicking off our Tucson Polymerpalooza with the adorable Saguaro Bead. Reserve your kits now, as supplies are very limited! Due to the Labor Day holiday, they will be available for pick up starting Tuesday, September 8 and must be returned by Wednesday, September 16. You're welcome to reserve the other kits now, but they will not be available until their featured week (see calendar for dates).

We are relying on the generosity of the Tucson community to help fill the ever-growing demand for Member’s Choice beads in more than 300 children’s hospitals where Beads of Courage programs are offered. One day soon, a child in the hospital will choose one of your handmade beads to add to their strand as a symbol of hope and healing on their treatment journey. Thank you for collaborating with us on this important mission!
