Beading Divas To The Rescue ~ Saving Animals One Bracelet At A Time.....

When Lizzie Mead’s two greyhounds were in a hit-and-run accident on October 20, 2008, six of her gal pals came forward to help raise funds to pay costly $14,300 veterinarian bills for Opal and Rider.

We still had plenty of beads remaining and Lizzie said, “Let’s keep going; I want to give back.”

In April 2009, Beading Divas to the Rescue started to fund-raise for animal charities and we have never looked back. Though Michelle, Angy and Glenda have moved on, Gail and Mary Jo have joined the team. Additionally, more than 30 volunteers have offered their time and creativity to make bracelets.

One of a kind bracelets are made with donated beads, memory wire and come with a paw charm to commemorate our mission.

Every month we choose a 501c3 non-profit animal charity.

A receipt is provided for each donation (accepted year round).

Thank you for reading. We are: Lizzie, Karyn, Cynthia, Loren, Gail and Mary Jo
