Melinda is also the founder and one of the moderators of one of my favorite Facebook groups - Creative Bead Chat.  With over 800 members, it's a growing community that you'll enjoy connecting with and finding daily inspiration. Visit here to check out the group and request to join.

So how can you enter to win this awesome prize?  
Easy peasy - blog, facebook or tweet about the 7000 Bracelets for Hope project and our goal to have 200 Art Bead Scene readers donate a bracelet this month.

Do the bracelets to be donated need to be made with art beads too?

I just shared this on my Facebook page, I didnt even realize this project even existed. Wow!

Mary Hicks said...

Count me in again. I love this charity!

Heather Powers said...

Kashmira - the bracelets that are donated can be whatever you'd like to send. They don't need to have art beads.

And your challenge piece doesn't have to be a bracelet. I just thought some would like to double up the two if they wanted.

But the challenge pieces do need to have art beads to qualify for the featured designer spots and the monthly challenge winners.
