In honour of Doug Gillespie, Beads of Courage-Canada has dedicated the Harvest Bead

The Harvest Bead of Courage has been dedicated in honour and remembrance of Doug Gillespie (1953-2014). Doug was instrumental in the establishment of Beads of Courage-Canada and has faithfully served on our Board of Directors.

 

The intention card included with the bead reads:

Harvest is the gathering of crops at the end of the growing season.  It is during this time of harvest that we hope you will focus on the renewal of your inner strengths. Think of every kernel in the corn husk representing your own potential and growth. Plant the seeds of possibility and joy in your life. In 2014, the Harvest Bead of Courage was formally dedicated in honor of Doug Gillespie for his commitment to establish Beads of Courage in Canada.

 

Doug's memory will live on through not only this bead but his passion and determination is woven into every program throughout Canada.
