Exclamation Beads Needed for IDITAROD 2016 (Mail by Feb 27 to Alaska)

The Hot Headed Honeys in AK authorized me to post on LE on their behalf.

BEADS ARE REALLY NEEDED FOR THE IDITAROD 2016 RUN! THERE ARE 86 MUSHERS THIS YEAR. THEY WOULD LIKE ALASKA THEMED BEAD PAIRS MAILED TO THEM BY SATURDAY, FEB 27TH TO BEGIN PACKING FOR THE RACE! *DETAILS BELOW*

BEADS ON THE TRAIL FOR BEADS OF COURAGE!

CALL FOR BEADS 2016:
To support the mission of Beads of Courage, make an Alaska themed bead to go with a musher on the Iditarod Trail and up to 12 replicas to be sold to raise funds for the Beads of Courage program. A full set would be 13 matched beads (or closely matching). We don't want the number of beads to scare you off, so smaller sets will be gratefully accepted too. Make as many as you are moved to give!

NOTE: Beads should be able to survive the journey in a pocket or buried in the sled bag. Keep weight in mind too - they count every ounce they'll be carrying for 1000+ miles. Stick to the Beads of Courage standard requirements - 3/32 in bead hole, no silver glass on the surface, and no sticky out parts that will easily break. Include your name, mailing address, email address and website if you want us to link to it from our Facebook pages. Yes - we are shooting for hand made glass beads, but will happily take ceramic, polymer clay, or beaded beads too. If you made the beads & want to help Beads of Courage - it counts!

SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
Beads for 2016 will be packed up for the trail at Artmosphere Studio on Feb 26 or 27, 2016. Please drop your beads off at The Bead Shack or The Alaska Bead Company in Anchorage or mail them to Artmosphere Studio in time for packing. Any beads received after the cut off will still be accepted and either put on the trail if we can, used for fundraising at Bead Challenge or donated directly to Beads of Courage.

***MAIL BEADS TO:***
Artmosphere Studio, 501 W 41st, Unit D, Anchorage, AK 99503.
(*NOTE* this is a new address! We moved again in September).

Include your contact info so Beads of Courage can thank you and so we can let you know which musher is carrying your bead.

Contact Michelle Pearson for further info at

or 907-317-0469.

Musher bead pairings will be posted on the Hot Headed Honeys and Artmosphere Studio Facebook pages after the mushers get bib numbers at the 2016 banquet March 4. Follow the race on Facebook too & cheer your bead on throughout the race! We do our best to get as many beads on the trail with mushers as we can. We also send one with The Teacher on the Trail, Make a Wish Iditariders, veterinarians, or pilots if they want to carry them too.

The actual Trail Bead returned by mushers will be displayed in the children's infusion center at The Children's Hospital at Providence in Anchorage for the month of September and then used for BOC fundraising at a future event. We still have the original trail beads. If you have an idea (and time & energy to help) to auction off the original trail beads let us know. Otherwise they could be used in a permanent display at Providence or Beads of Courage HQ. The replicas will be available for purchase at the Bead Challenge hosted by Artmosphere Studio in September 2016. For each replica trail bead purchased at Bead Challenge, one will go to a child in the Beads of Courage program. Buy one and give one! Proceeds raised from sales of the Iditarod Trail Replica beads, and at the Bead Challenge Event will support the Beads of Courage program for children coping with cancer at the Children's Hospital of Providence in Anchorage and the general mission of Beads of Courage. Our goal each Bead Challenge is to raise enough to cover the cost of Beads of Courage at Providence.

I wish this had been posted earlier. I forgot all about the Iditarod this year and didn't get beads done in time. Maybe next year we can have an earlier reminder.

Hope you got enough beads.
