Beading Divas to the Rescue

Buy me to support dog racing investigations

For the month of May, Beading Divas to the Rescue is selling bracelets for GREY2K USA Education Fund.

The Education Fund pays for investigations, videos, commercials, and advertisements that inform people about the horrors of greyhound racing and why it must end.

The Education Fund is especially near and dear to the hearts of the Beading Divas because of an under cover investigation of the Tucson dog track which aired on KOLD-TV  in December 2010. You can watch it here.  The dogs are confined in cages all day wearing damn muzzles!  The GM compares the dog track to the Taj Mahal.

And here’s the longer video. You can see more and hear more and learn how our poor greyhounds live while in the racing environment in South Tucson.

The Education Fund pays for these kinds of undercover investigations, professionally-made videos, commercials, and advertisements. Images always trump words.

Please help support these ongoing activities. Greyhound racing is a cruel and dying sport. It must end.

BUY BRACELETS ONLINE: You can buy bracelets for $20/each (goes directly to the Fund) + $4 S&H.

In Tucson, there’s a large selection at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave., 520-624-9954 and a smaller selection at Dirty Dawgs Dog Wash, 2510 N. Campbell Ave., 520-770-6045.

Fundraising: Beading Divas to the Rescue 2009/05/19

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
