Bella Beadz was originally founded as a way to give back to the community, raise awareness and make people smile. We have never lost sight of those principles, and today, charitable work is still the pillar that we build upon. We take great pride in our ability to give back to our community both at home and across the nation. Most recently, we were greatly honored to receive the “Hero’s Award” for outstanding community service for our work with 9-1-1 for Kids and Athletes and Entertainers for Kids sponsored by AT&T, Kathy Ireland and NFL greats Tim Brown and Howie Long.
The official emergency caller training program created by US 9-1-1 communication center officials, emergency medical, fire and law enforcement professionals who were charged with the task of developing educational tools to help reduce the alarmingly high numbers of non-emergency calls made to 9-1-1.
The primary purpose of the organization is to educate and promote emergency preparedness by providing programs and materials that enable children and families to be emergency ready and to recognize those successfully applying emergency education and training.

After loss of 3 kids to rare brain cancer Erin Mading once said
“It’s a loss no one should ever have to face” and because of this, she has worked tireless to raise awareness.
Erin gave birth to five children in total, but, has now lost three to a rare form of brain cancer, called Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency, or CMMRD. CMMRD is formed through a genetic mutation that occurs in children. Cody, and his younger sister Avery, both passed away at age 17.
The youngest Mading daughter, Isabella, was diagnosed shortly afterwards. She died Saturday, at just 10 year old.
Bella Beadz has become extremely close with Erin Mading and her children, especially Averi and Isabella who passed away from this awful disease. We took so much pride in sending our bracelets and special gifts to these children suffering from such an awful disease. When Averi went to NYC for her Make – A – Wish, she sent pictures of her wearing all of her bracelets. We will continue to brighten the lives of children suffering from any kind of illness.

Pictures of Cody, Averi, and Isabella (Bella) who lost their lives to a genetic cancer. All three of these children were from one family. Love the picture of Averi wearing her Bella Beadz bracelets on her way to NYC for her “Make a Wish” , sadly she died shortly afterwards.

Our love and prayers goes out to their family every day …. Bella Beadz loves their mom, Erin Mading.
