Default Beads of Courage Glass Donation

Our last shipment from Effetre arrived and on it is about 1,000 pounds of glass headed for beads of courage.

While I was at Effetre I noticed that when they started each days production of glass rods from machines, the first glass to come out is usually a bit bent, or a bit long, or a bit short, might have some contamination and this glass goes to the Glass Trash.

I asked them if they could allow me to have some glass to spread out to BOC and they said "yes"

We still have not opened all the boxes, but there is a good amount of glass plus there is 100 pounds of shorts of Effetre COOL COLORS from many years ago.

I will have more information next week to what we got and what we are shipping.

Thank You Effetre

Mike

That is wonderful! I hope it turns into a huge amount of beads, and you've reminded me to send in what I have on Monday, so thanks twice!

So will the people who make BOC beads just pay for shipping? That would be great.

I was assuming it would be made available for BOC "event" sessions, like maybe guild meetings where everyone makes BOC beads all day, etc. or the once a year thing they hold in various studios (that I can't recall what they call it
