Default Standing Down

After many years of service to Beads of Courage I have concluded that it is time for me to retire from my post as Director of Bead Donations. I still fully support both the organization and the mission and I intend to continue my own donations on a (hopefully) more regular basis. I just feel that it is time for someone new to move up to take my place. In all honestly I think that working with Beads of Courage has been one of the best things that I have ever done in my life. I'll still be around as an advisor on technical issues so I'm not leaving, just stepping more into the background.
Keep up the good work out there!

Robert

Aye, Thank You for Your Service Sir.

It is most likely going to take at least two to replace you.

Well done for all the years of service. Great organization and I hope they continue to thrive. Glad you will get some more time to spend doing other things that you love.

Thanks to everyone for your kind words. This was an extremely difficult decision to make. I'm hoping to soon have more time for making beads for the kids. Full support for Jean and her team - great work done by great people - and all of you as well. You have given so much!
Thank you!
