Beading Divas to the Rescue on vacation July 2011 2011/07/01Posted by greyhoundsrule in Beading Divas to the Rescue.
Beading Divas to the Rescue will be on vacation during the entire month of July. That means there will be no designated charity for July and no funds raised for July.
So far this year, the demand for our bracelets and fulfillment has been high.
Aside from the core group of seven — Angy Shearer, Cynthia David, Glenda Taylor, Lizzie Mead, Loren Dawn, Michelle Caillet, and myself Karyn Zoldan — we are fortunate to have Noni Davis who is our bracelet maker extraordinaire as well as Sandra Luckau, who not only makes bracelets but takes them to sell where she works. Then there’s Joan Athey and a few more whose names I need to look up.
We recently had a woman out of the blue bring us some bracelets to sell for fundraiser.
During the month of April, greyhound adopter & fellow beader Alice Jordan took bracelets to work to sell and her employer matched the amount sold at the office. Wow!
Our little idea which started to pay off an astronomical vet bill has blossomed quite nicely. I so enjoy knowing and working with these creative women.
We all need a break especially Lizzie who did the bulk of the fulfillment and Michelle who is our star photographer.
See you in August with new energy and a new animal charity!
