“GOT BEADS? Beading Divas to the Rescue need beads to continue our mission of fund-raising for animal rescues. When you donate beads during the Drive, please add your name, contact info, and name of a 501 c3 animal charity, rescue, or shelter.
The random drawing will be held on March 14 (you can bring beads on that day – see details below for location) and one lucky charity will be chosen to be our May 2015 bracelet fundraising recipient. On this day, we’ll also have refreshments and raffle prizes.
The Random Drawing is free and open to the public. No tickets required.
We have numerous partner venues around town where you can drop off beads. If you cannot get to these locations, we may be able to pick up your beads. You can also mail them. PM us for the address.
Since April 2009 we have raised more than $115,000 for 46 charities (some more than once) in 5 states.
Please SHARE with your friends…

Carolyn’s note: I’ve dropped off all my extra beads to these great gals, so please click on the link above for the various locations to do so before March 7. And don’t miss the March 14 drawing at Silver Sea Jewelry, 330 N. 4th Aveue, 4 to 5 p.m. These Divas collect beads, design & string them into beautiful bracelets, then sell them to raise $ for animal rescue charities and organizations.
