The Heaven Can Wait Youth Group gives kids aged 10-18 a chance to learn about animal care and animal rescue. It was organized as a way to teach the next generation how to be responsible pet owners. However once in a while, one of the students has a new idea to teach us. This is the case with Sage, who is helping homeless pets with a line of jewelry she hand makes.
Twelve year-old Sage and her grandmother Jorie have designed and handcrafted earrings and bracelets for Heaven Can Wait with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the cats and dogs in our care.
The jewelry which is made from “real silver” is being sold for $15. It can be purchased each Friday and Saturday at the HCWS Warehouse Sale at 6360 Annie Oakley (between Sunset and Russell). The Warehouse Sale is open 9am to 2pm. Jewelry can also be bought by contacting the HCWS Youth Group at: email@example.com.
Sage said she came up with the idea when all of the members of the Youth Group were asked to think of creative fundraising ideas. Sage said her grandmother came to visit at about the same time and together they decided to make the jewelry.
Sage has been active in the HCWS Youth Group since last summer. Her parents introduced her to the group because they knew their daughter is interested in helping animals and hopes to one day become a veterinarian.
Heaven Can Wait is very proud of Sage’s accomplishments and we look forward to see what else she will be doing in the future for homeless animals.
