If you're sitting on mountains of beads at your house after a Gem Show spending spree, don't worry. The Beading Divas are looking for bead donations to keep their bracelets for a cause operation running. 

From now until March 7, you can drop off your extra beads to one of many locations, including Silver Sea Jewlery on Fourth Avenue. Then the jewelry-making team will turn those loose beads into buyable jewlery. Then on Saturday, March 14, the Divas will be at Silver Sea to conduct a random drawing to determine which charity will get the money from the bracelet sales. Small prizes, raffles and light refreshments will be available at the event.

Since 2009, the Beading Divas have raised more than $115,000 for animal charities by selling the bracelets that they make for $20. The proceeds from bracelet sales go to a different animal charity each month, amounting to 46 different organizations in five different states getting necessary funds from the group.

For more information on the Beading Divas, you can visit the organization's blog.
