Workshop Request

img_0971Join us for our workshops where you will lend a hand to craft our gifts of hope that are given to cancer patients and their families in corridor hospitals and oncology clinics.

Gifts include earrings, bookmarks, and believe, faith, courage and hope serenity circles all accompanied with a handmade card that includes an inspirational saying.

Our workshops are designed such that anyone who cares about our cause can participate. Skilled facilitators will guide you through the process and provide any needed creative input. Over 750 gifts are given each month and that number is growing as we connect with new distribution sites. Get involved today by participating in our beading, card making, or combination beading and card making workshops. These workshops not only produce a meaningful outcome but they are fun and a little social too!
