Wow! It’s been a good year for the Beading Divas’ charities. We raised a total of $23,349 in 2015 for 11 different animal charities. Check out our About page to see how much money has been raised since 2009.
In case you haven’t noticed, our blog has been updated and is now mobil-device-friendly. Thank you to Alisha Escoto for her creativity and patience. She is very easy to work with so keep her in mind for your web and design projects. She also has four rescued dogs.
Our new blog is more than fundraising and bling. We’ve added a page for local resources and a calendar. If you have a pet-related fundraising event, volunteer orientation or important meeting related to animal welfare in our community, we’ll try to post it. No last minute requests and no guarantees for posting. PM us on Facebook or use the Contact form.
In 2015, Beading Divas became a 501c3. Now when you donate beads, we can provide a donation receipt.
We’d like to thank our partners who sell bracelets around town: Silver Sea Jewelry and Gifts, Clues Unlimited Mystery Bookstore and AK Jensen Apparel. Clues Unlimited celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and AK Jensen has some great sales happening now.
For a few years we sold bracelets at Sissy’s Pet Grooming on the NWside but now we’re looking for a different business such as hair salon, nail salon, day spa, or women’s retail. We want to thank Sissy’s owner Jason for his assistance and do a shout out for his grooming business.
In January, we’re fundraising for Arizona Puggle Rescue. What’s a Puggle? How about part pug and part beagle? Check them out as they have expanded beyond Arizona and the need for your support is great. Buy a bracelet or two on online.
