Yes, you ARE making a difference!

Each time you dedicate a bead, post a “Thank You” note to the wall, or participate in any of the Museum Building Activities throughout the year, your contribution gets recorded in this graph.

It shows how your participation helps fill the Love, Peace & Beads Museum. (scroll down for more…)

Each monthly activity is represented by a colored bar. Of course the blue one is huge, because it represents the beads on the Neverending Necklace. Remember that the necklace had a head start of almost two decades, before all the other activities got launched.

Return often – these colored bars get updated periodically. Stats as of 3/16/2020:

Rock Flag Hous Star Pray Leav Bead Quot Bear Cork Than Orna

There are 200 beads in the vertical bar and 15,000 in this blue area here, for a total of 15,200 dedicated BEADS!!

This blue field is representative for the 15,000 beads that we couldn’t fit into the graph above…

Letters from Recipients

 

November 14, 2019

From Kelly Dionne Bradicich, KellyAnn’s Ministry:

I saw what you donated for our raffle prizes and wow! Thank you so much for all of that! Those necklaces are gorgeous! Some very fortunate ladies are going to LOVE these! Thank you so much again! 🤩

 

December 6, 2005

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and the residents of Vetsville Cease Fire House, I would like to personally thank you for your kind donation.

It is through the efforts of people like you that Vetsville is able to continue its mission of reaching out to the homeless and disabled veterans throughout America. National statistics show that on any given night there are 300,000 homeless and hungry veterans, many who are very ill, living in unacceptable conditions in the United States.

The circumstances of our time are that the number of homeless has grown to crisis proportions in South Florida. In the Palm Beach County area alone there is an estimated 2,000 homeless veterans; their needs are overwhelming.

We at Vetsville are very proud of the fact that we are in our 12th year of continuous operations, with our shelter located in Palm Beach County. Vetsville operates a drug and alcohol free program with the overall objective of returning the veterans to the social mainstream.

Once again, thank you and God bless you for supporting disabled homeless veterans.”

                    Sincerely,

                    Chris Noel

                    President/Founder, AFRTS Vietnam 1966-1971

 

July 30, 2009

“Dear Love & Peace Project,

Thank you so much for including Pure Thoughts in your project. Your contribution was so kind and is greatly appreciated. The horses and people of Pure Thoughts thank you for your donation to the horses. Thank you for thinking of the horses.”

                    Jennifer Swanson
