March-April bracelet sales benefit Cody’s Friends. Cody’s Friends is a 501(c)(3) non-profit started by Cody Allen in 2011 when he was 10 years old. Cody’s Friends supports the crucial bond between human and animal welfare. Those in need will do all they can for their pet…even if it means feeding them their own food. Thousands of people in need in Pima County depend on Cody’s Friends for pet food. Over 48 human service agencies and 100+ animal rescue groups and shelters also come to Cody’s Friends for pet food and supplies.
Little Papi brought his mom to Cody’s Friends for pet food, supplies and a warm blanket. The cost of pet food has never been higher and pet food donations are down nationwide, so Cody’s Friends buys 4-5 pallets per week. They work with 48 human service organizations including food banks, soup kitchens, first responders, Meals on Wheels and more. These organizations have become Cody’s Friends satellite outposts for pet food. If you are in need, and can’t get to our building, there should be a food bank in your area with pet food from Cody’s Friends.
You can help Cody’s Friends provide food for more deserving pets like little Papi by purchasing one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Beading Divas bracelets.
Cost per bracelet is $20. The bracelets make great gifts anytime of year! The best selection is online via Etsy but in Tucson you can also buy bracelets at Fuchsia Spa in La Encantada Shopping Center, and Silver Sea Jewelry, in the historic 4th Avenue Shopping District. Silver Sea is open Tuesday-Sunday from noon-6pm (masks and social distancing required.)
