10% from the sale of each ‘goodness’ will be donated
to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
glassybaby is pleased to announce a new glassybaby color that gives back to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). The vision behind SCCA, founded in 2001, was to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors by bringing together the research and treatment of doctors and scientists from three renowned institutions: Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, UW Medicine and Seattle Children’s.
You might say we are tickled pink about the choice of color and its new moniker: a beautiful, light pink named ‘goodness’. My friends and family will readily attest to my love of all things pink. I think it started with the fluffy clouds of cotton candy, riding high atop a white paper cone that were a rare and treasured treat of childhood. Many years later, pink is my go-to color for clothing, lipstick, running shoes, stationery and even ice cream. When I’m literally “in the pink”, I’m feeling uplifted and ready to take on the world. Join me in supporting a great color for a great cause. To purchase ‘goodness’, click here.
glassybaby will donate to Stand Up To Cancer 10% of the purchase
price from the sale of each ‘shine’ from now through July 1, 2014.
This Is Where The End Of Cancer Begins.
That’s the promise and the premise behind Stand Up To Cancer, a charity launched in 2008 by the Entertainment Industry Foundation, whose goal is to raise funds to accelerate the groundbreaking research necessary to end cancer. We are proud to announce a new glassybaby that gives back to Stand Up To Cancer: ‘shine’. In addition to our single giving color, we also have a ‘stand up’ set: ‘shine’, ‘joy’ and ‘taxi’. We greatly admire Stand Up To Cancer’s mission to end cancer and save lives. To purchase ‘shine’, click here. To purchase the ‘stand up’ set, click here.

glassybaby recently presented a check for $38,908.35 to the
Swedish Medical Center Foundation for their Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
This donation was funded through our December Bellevue store sales. glassybaby wishes to acknowledge and thank the amazing glassybaby community who shopped in Bellevue in December and, through their purchases, supported this very worthwhile cause.
The Cancer Patient Assistance Fund at Swedish Medical Center is supported by members of the community and Swedish employees. The oncology social work team at Swedish uses this fund in special cases where money is needed to meet non-medical needs and expenses of Swedish patients and their families. Last year, over $200,000 was distributed to benefit patients and families in need of non-medical support.
This fund has recently helped cancer patients in the following ways:
* Provided continuing piano lessons for a patient’s child who was unable to afford lessons due to costs of treatment.
* Provided airfare to a patient’s young son who ultimately would go and live with his grandmother.
* Provided financial support for back to school supplies and clothes to children of cancer patients.
* Provided assistance with rent, utilities, groceries and childcare expenses.
* Provided funds for parking at and transportation to Swedish Medical Center.
Valentine’s Day is almost here and we all know what every woman wants, and deserves, from her special someone. glassybaby is the gift that keeps on giving in every way and will last you a lifetime. How do I give my boyfriend/husband a hint, you ask? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you men’s night at glassybaby!
Tuesday, Feb. 12, all three of our stores will be ready to welcome your men, with snacks and drinks, and help them pick out some beautiful hand-blown glass votive holders from 4-7 p.m. We will have pre-boxed gift sets ready to go, but we can also help your significant others create a personal, unique set by grouping together a few of your favorite words and colors. Who wouldn’t want to receive a set with ‘cherish,’ ‘dream’ and ‘grateful?’ I know I would.
Ten percent of all sales from men’s night will be donated to the White Light Fund at the University of Washington Medical Center. Get a gift by giving a gift. What could be better? Hope to see you there.
10% from the sale of each ‘hope’ glassybaby will be donated to the Seattle Children’s Hospital
Emergency Patient Assistance Fund. This fund ensures that finances don’t stand in the
way of health, safety and dignity. To purchase ‘hope’, click here.
glassybaby is pleased to partner with the Ben Towne Foundation and announce our latest giving color: ‘rudolph’. 10% from the sale of each ‘rudolph’ glassybaby will be donated to the Ben Towne Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.
Ben Towne was an amazing little boy who lost his fight with neuroblastoma when he was just three and a half years old. His courage and strength inspired others to establish the Ben Towne Foundation. The Foundation honors the memory of Ben and works to accelerate the pace of childhood cancer research—changing the way pediatric cancers are treated and cured. To purchase ‘rudolph’, click here.
