With your support of $250, we will add this Aspire Bead by BOC Hall of Fame Artist Shauna Mitru to our Aspire art installation which we aspire to fill with these special handmade beads symbolizing the power and determination of the human spirit to overcome adversity. 

A matching handmade bead will be sent to you (or someone you choose) as our gift of gratitude. Plus, your name will be added to a permanent display adjacent to the sculpture.

Thank you for contributing to the completed sculpture that will serve as a visible and tangible manifestation of the courage of Beads of Courage members and an enduring tribute to their strength and resilience.

Together, let's Aspire to make healing happen!
