Update: Bead Drive 2015 ended but we ALWAYS need beads.
It’s that time of year again when Beading Divas to the Rescue do a shout out for beads.
BEADS ARE NEEDED TO CONTINUE OUR MISSION!
Every month we choose a different 501c3 animal charity to raise money for. Since April 2009, the Beading Divas have raised more than $115,000 from one-of-a-kind beaded bracelets available for $20.
All funds raised (to date) have been donated to 45 animal charities (some chosen more than once) in five states (AZ, CA, FL, MA, and KS).
You can drop off beads at various venues around Tucson/Green Valley, mail them, or we can pick up beads, pending location. Can you help? Call 520-955-9061 for our mailing address or email firstname.lastname@example.org
WHEN PROVIDING BEADS, PLEASE ALSO INCLUDE:
• Your name
• Contact info – phone # plus area code if outside Tucson metro
• The name of a 501 c3 animal charity
All charities entered will be added to our “consideration pool.” We look at this list when choosing a recipient charity.
LOCAL EVENT: On Saturday March 14, 2015 at 4 PM –– A drawing will be held at SILVER SEA JEWELRY, 330 North 4th Avenue, Tucson, Arizona 85705. One lucky 501c3 animal charity will be randomly chosen as the recipient of bracelet sales in May 2015.
