Rider & Opal, happy & well

Rider & Opal, happy & well

 

 

Last year – October 20, 2008 was that horrible day when Lizzie Mead and her two greyhounds Opal & Rider almost became a statistic in a 5-car hit-and-run accident.

This blog was started as a way to help Lizzie pay the horrendous $14,300 vet bill incurred by Opal and Rider.

Lizzie had physical therapy and the dogs recovered just fine.

It was a miracle of miracles.

Beading divas to the rescue helped Lizzie raise $11,300 by telling her story, asking for donations, receiving media coverage, and selling bracelets (her insurance kicked in and she paid $3,000).

The beading divas — Angy, Cynthia, Glenda, Karyn (I’m the wordsmith), Lizzie, Loren, and Michelle have stayed together, bonded, beaded, and sold around 400-450 bracelets  to give back and raise funds for greyhounds and other animal groups in need.

Read the story and donation history.

Thanks to all for your support. Buy a bracelet. Hug your hound or cat or whoever in life is precious to you.
