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.
10% from the sale of our ‘spring’ set will be donated to
the UW Medical Center’s Heart Center Support Fund
Spring officially arrives on Wednesday, March 20th. In the often-gray, Pacific Northwest, we greatly anticipate this change in seasons. It is as much an emotional shift as it is a weather shift for us. (We don’t put away our umbrellas and raincoats until the end of June!) Whatever spring represents to you—a change in seasons or a change in attitude, we hope it makes your heart and spirit soar. 10% from the sale of our ‘spring’ set will be donated to the UW Medical Center’s Heart Center Support Fund.

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.

happy valentine’s day
Imagine our delight when two adorable kindergartners from St. Therese Catholic Academy stopped by our Madrona store with a hand-made Valentine! In fact, the entire neighborhood is decked-out in these made-with-love gifts. Each time I see one hanging in a store window, I can’t help but smile.
We did some gift giving of our own recently. Thanks to a generous glassybaby community and an amazing December, we presented some of the largest giving checks in our history. Northwest Harvest was the recipient of a check in the amount of $14,537! We were overwhelmed with gratitude when we learned that this money will provide 66,000 meals! Those meals were made possible through the amazing work of Northwest Harvest and your generosity. Two gifts from the heart, for sure!

At glassybaby, we love the idea of a new year filled with possibilities and fresh opportunities to further our mission of giving. Each month, we write checks to our giving partners based on the previous month’s sales. Thanks to our incredible glassybaby community, it was a December to remember.
Our December sales allowed us to write some amazing checks to our giving partners last week. In total, we gave away $146,643.28! Of course, none of that would have happened without you. If you purchased a glassybaby in December, you helped make these checks possible. We are so grateful to you for your support.
We’ll be featuring stories about our giving partners in the coming months, highlighting how and where they use the money we give them. Please join us in our efforts to raise and donate “one million more”. We can’t think of a better way to start the New Year.
glassybaby is partnering with the Kathi Goertzen Foundation on a new giving set: ‘kathi’s colors’. The set includes ‘courage’ and ‘brother’. 10% from the sale of ’kathi’s colors’ will be donated to the Kathi Goertzen Foundation to fund brain tumor and brain cancer research and to inspire and support patients and families as they undergo treatment. To purchase the set, click here.
Kathi Goertzen, long time KOMO 4 news anchor, who passed away on August 13, 2012, after a 14-year battle with benign brain tumors. Kathi approached her illness with the same grace, humor and warmth that were the hallmarks of her broadcasts, which spanned nearly three decades. ‘kathi’s colors’ pays homage to her alma mater, Washington State University.
