Friday’s Fiver No 8

This week’s fiver goes to The Greyhound Injury Fund also know as The Beading Divas to the Rescue.  Actually I didn’t donate a fiver, I ordered a bracelet from their online Etsy store.


They are a group of talented women who sell handmade one of a kind beaded bracelets to raise funds for animal charities.  This group first came about when one of the group whilst in her car with her two greyhounds were involved in a hit and run accident which left Lizzie the driver injured and her two dogs Opal and Rider seriously injured.  The resulting vet bills were in excess of $14000 and so the group set about fund raising to help pay the bill.  One of the ideas were making bracelets from donated beads and so The Greyhound Injury Fund came in to being.  They reached their goal and since then, chosen a different good cause too raise funds for.  Over the preceding years they have raised many dollars for deserving causes.  Please visit their blog where this month the beneficiaries are New Hope Cattle Dogs.
