glassybaby is pleased to announce our newest giving partner: The Shanti Project.  Founded in 1974, by Dr. Charlie Garfield, The Shanti Project extends a helping hand to San Francisco’s most underserved residents.  Through a network of more than 250 trained volunteers, Shanti provides one-on-one support to those facing the challenges of HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

“Shanti” is a Sanskrit word meaning “inner peace” or “tranquility”.  All of Shanti’s programs are aimed at easing the burdens and improving the well-being of people in difficult life situations.  As one of the first organizations to work directly with AIDS patients, the Shanti approach quickly became an international model for more than 600 organizations.  Today, Shanti provides support to more than 2,000 individuals annually.  In the words of Shanti’s Executive Director, Kaushik Roy, “The Shanti Model isn’t complicated, it is based on the universal laws of the heart.”

glassybaby is thrilled to bring its light and mission of giving back to San Francisco, with a new retail store slated to open in early November.  To purchase ‘hudson’, click here.
