This blog was created to raise money to pay greyhounds Opal and Rider’s $14,300 vet bill. The funds came through online donations, the greyhound and dog-loving community both in Tucson and across the globe. And through the sale of beautiful bracelets –mission accomplished!
Then we donated $1,164 to the Guam Greyhound Project through more donations and bracelet sales.
Then through the sale of bracelets only, we raised $1,165 for Arizona Greyhound Rescue, here in Tucson.
Since we have more beads and the desire to continue…we have decided to give ourselves a name — Beading Divas to the Rescue — and continue making bracelets for worthy causes.
Our next cause is Greyhound Support in Kansas. The money from the next 25 bracelets that we sell ($500) will go towards getting 5 senior greyhounds on a bus (or hauling vehicle) which will deliver them to adoption groups.
For now you can buy bracelets in Tucson ($20/each) at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954. Or visit our Etsy store, LizzieStardust, which will have a good assortment of bracelets after Memorial Day.
We are: Diva Angy, Diva Cynthia, Diva Glenda, Diva Michelle, Diva Loren, and Diva Karyn
