Yep, it’s that time of year again when Beading Divas to the Rescue need more beads. Since 2009, we have sold more than 3,000 bracelets for animal charities. We rock!
But as you can imagine that is a whole lot of beads.
We are encouraging all the animal rescues that we have raised money for — to tell your Facebook likes, your adopters, and volunteers to donate beads on behalf of your group.
One lucky group will be randomly chosen to receive sales in April. The last time we held a Bead Drive was late 2010 – early 2011. Greyhound Support Transport of Florida won! They raised $1,740.00 during their winning month. The bead drive is open to any 501 c3 animal charity in the continental U.S.
If you are local to the Tucson area, you can drop off beads at these numerous locations or we can try to arrange pick up — ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE GEM SHOW.
TO MAIL BEADS, PLEASE SEND TO:
One thing you might not know is that all the money raised goes back to the groups. Bracelets cost $20 and the groups receive the entire $20. For online sales, we do charge shipping & handling and with that money pay for postage & mailing supplies. We chip in money when needed to buy memory wire, paw charms, and findings.
Some hot sunglasses — you know the kind that celebrities wear — are for auction now on EBAY. They are sexy. They are fashionable. They grace the pages of Vanity Fair. The money raised for the sale of the sunglasses will go towards our supplies and some wild bead buying (we cannot enter the bead drive drawing). So check it out! Here and here.
We don’t know who the hunk is above. Do you? Kanye and Usher are pictured wearing sunglasses like the ones on eBay. Men with their own sense of style embrace these sunglasses. Go bid!
