Beading Divas to the Rescue


2014 was a very good year.

This year we INC’d ourselves in Arizona. We are a non-for-profit corporation. We are not a 501c3.

In April we crossed over the $100,000 threshold in bracelet fundraising.

Tucson Beading Divas

5th anniversary celebration

In May, the Arizona Daily Star wrote a great article about our accomplishments and promoted our Applause for a Cause event at La Cocina in downtown Tucson as did The Morning Blend.

More than 100 people enjoyed the festivities that night. We had live music and giveaways. Hermitage Cat Shelter won the evening’s net proceeds provided by La Cocina and ChiLuvBug Small Dog Rescue won the honor to be the following month’s Beading Divas recipient.

A good time was had by all. The original 7 Beading Divas all wearing tiaras are: Angy Shearer, Michelle Caillet, Loren Dawn, Cynthia David, Lizzie Mead, Glenda Taylor, and Karyn Zoldan. Please follow us on Facebook.

In 2014, we fund-raised for:

–2 cat charities
–1 wildlife charity
–1 farm sanctuary
–1 organization advocating no kill
–1 service dog organization
–4 dog rescues
–1 greyhound rescue
–1 month vacay

Got beads?

The Beading Divas to the Rescue have been hard at work as have the honorary Beading Divas and others who have participated in our project to race funds for animal charities.

We are not a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We are simply a group of creative women who want to give back.  All sales of bracelets go to help the animal charity of the month. Here is our donation history.

In order to continue our endeavors we need beads!

We have gotten this far because of the generosity of our friends and the community as they have given beads to us as well as our finds at yard sales/thrift stores and the occasional bead store/gem show splurge.

If you have beads collecting dust in your closets and craft boxes, please consider giving them so we can continue to raise funds for animal charities.

You can drop the beads at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Ave., 624-9954 or email karynzoldan@yahoo.com to arrange pick up. If you have any ideas how we can glean more beads please email Karyn or post a comment.

Thank you

The Beading Divas are: Michelle Caillet, Cynthia David, Loren Dawn, Lizzie Mead, Angy Shearer, Glenda Taylor, and blogger, Karyn Zoldan.
