To participate in the charm swap, you must be willing to make enough charms for everyone in your group (including yourself) AND one extra so that a set of charms can be auctioned to benefit Beads of Courage. This means if your group has 10 people, you will make and send a total of 11 charms. One charm is a “donation” to be auctioned off to Beads of Courage. The last swap we made about $150 for BOC. (I would have to look it up for the exact donation because I don’t remember for sure). I was lucky to be involved with this group and help benefit the Beads of Courage. It was fun creating charms, this was my first try at this. I bought the Big Kick and have used it a few times for copper earrings and I thought it would work for my charms. I was happy with my finished product and so excited for my package to arrive with my charm swap. As you can see my camera is still not working so the photo is not updated yet.
