The Red Bead Story
The Red Bead Story is a .925 sterling silver spacer bead with a heart pattern entwined around the bead. The heart signifies our loved ones who are keeping the homefront going as their military service member is deployed. The red stones that are in the center of the heart remind us to "Wear RED" (Remember Everyone Deployed), from the Friday Wear RED compaign. The Red Story Bead proceeds will go toward The Red Bead Story fund developed by Nomades to give back to the families of those deployed. Deployments take their toll emotionally, physically, and often times, financially on our military members and their families. When asked the biggest stresses of deployment, military members responded the concerns and worries about those at home that have taken on the burden of all the homefront duties. We have set up the Red Bead Story to lend a helping hand. Whether it is getting the lawn mowed for a pregnant spouse, helping with a much-needed break from little ones during a long deployment, or helping a mom a with travel monies to the reunion for her child that deployed with the military. We want to give back to those that help tell this story.
