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