Thanks for new beginnings

Thanks for new beginnings

In an extremely rare occurrence Beading Divas to the Rescue opted to give the Greyhound Alliance/Sunburst Project another month of bracelet sales.

August 2013 is their 2nd anniversary and that means in two years they have successfully and safely transported 2,000 retired racing greyhounds out of Florida to adoption groups in non-racing states and Canada!

Everybody’s got to feel good (very good) about that.

You can buy bracelets online via Etsy. Bracelets cost $20/each (+S&H) and are available online as well as locally in Tucson.

The Greyhound Alliance’s Sunburst Project opened its Sunburst Kennel at Ebro, Florida, on August 1, 2011, partnering with GPA Emerald Coast, to move greyhounds from the tracks in the Florida Panhandle and beyond.

The Project is 100% funded by donations and grants.

Support from the greyhound community has enabled Sunburst to continue its mission – the Kennel remains open, as long as they can financially support it, and hopefully move 100 hounds a month, as was accomplished in May and June 2013.

During the month of August, when you buy a bracelet for $20, a donor is matching every sale. So $20 = a $40 donation. Buy 5 bracelets = $100 and the Sunburst Project receives $200. Do the math. It’s not too early to be proactive and buy holiday gifts.

This is your chance to help put more hounds on a haul on their way to forever homes, to help support the kennel where the dogs stay waiting for their haul, or to help with vetting and medical expenses.

The Greyhound Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)3 Illinois charitable organization.

Locally in Tucson, you can buy bracelets at these fine venues:

–-Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954
–-Clues Unlimited Mystery Book Store, 3146 E. Fort. Lowell Road (SE corner Country Club), 326-8533 (closed Sun/Mon)
–-A K Jensen Apparel, (St. Philips Plaza), 4340 N. Campbell Ave., Suite 72, 529-2775
–-Sissy’s Pet Salon, 7350 N La Cholla Blvd (by Albertsons), 229-9898

(FYI: There are 7 original Beading Divas who make the decisions and on our respective birthday months, each Diva can choose the charity. In May, Karyn Z chose GA/SP and in August, Glenda T chose GA/SP.)

Midwest - here I come

Midwest – here I come

For the month of May, Beading Divas to the Rescue is so very proud to be raising funds for the Greyhound Alliance’s Sunburst Project & Kennel.

The Greyhound Alliance’s Sunburst Project and Kennel opened in August 2011 and since then has moved more than 1,600 retired racers to adoption.

Retired racing greyhounds from Ebro, Pensacola, and JCKC/Monticello dog tracks have gone to 38 adoption groups in 22 states and Canada. Last year, The Sunburst Kennel took in more than 250 greyhounds during the JCKC/Monticello season and closing.

This week many Sunburst hounds are on the move:
–15 hounds headed to adoption groups in the West
–32 to East Coast adoption groups
–on May 4–45 hounds will be on their way to adoption groups in Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin

Yowza! This is a 92-hound week!

The Greyhound Alliance is located in Illinois but saw a huge need to help retired racing greyhounds leave Florida where there are 13 dog tracks. Kudos to all involved in this extensive endeavor.

You can buy beautiful handmade one-of-a-kind bracelets ($20) ONLINE via Etsy. (U.S. add $5.50/S&H)
