Do you remember your first crush?  I do.  Now that I’m married, I tend to crush more on objects and colors than people.  (I suspect my husband will be happy to hear this!)  Lately, I’ve been crushing on the color orange.  I find that orange is an instant mood lifter and energizer.  It’s the accent color in my living room and the color of my newest raincoat. I even have a collection of orange drinkers that I use daily.  I love that burst of color on my kitchen table…especially on a rainy Seattle morning.  Just try staying sleepy in the company of orange drinkers (or glassybaby).

A few months ago, I began noticing the color orange on some famous Seattle buildings and landmarks.  Turns out that “painting the town orange” was central to the promotion of Obliteride, a new, community-wide effort to accelerate lifesaving cancer research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Obliteride will culminate in a fundraising bike ride August 9th-11th that will be quintessentially Northwest.  To support Obliteride, and the efforts of Fred Hutch to end cancer, we are pleased to introduce the ‘crush’ glassybaby.  It’s a beautiful, vivid orange that gives 10% back to Obliteride.  Since 2007, glassybaby has donated more than $100,000 to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  Join the community determined to ‘crush’ cancer.  To purchase ‘crush’, click here.
