Through October 6th, enter giving code ‘sunshinekids’ upon checkout and 10% of your glassybaby.com purchase will be donated to Sunshine Kids Foundation to benefit children with cancer
Last Sunday, we had the privilege of hosting an event at our Madrona studio and hotshop to benefit the Sunshine Kids Foundation. Founded in 1982, the Sunshine Kids provides a variety of programs and events, free of charge, for kids who are receiving cancer treatments in hospitals across North America. The irony of the Sunshine Kids event coinciding with the first major storm of the Pacific Northwest rain festival was not lost on us. Sideways rain and high wind warnings did not dampen the spirits of those that came out to support the amazing work of this organization. If you weren’t able to attend, there is still time to have your glassybaby purchases benefit Sunshine Kids.

One of the best things about working at glassybaby is seeing the instantaneous look of recognition and appreciation on someone’s face when they spy the company’s logo printed on the t-shirt I’m wearing. It’s a badge of honor for me. I’m proud to work here. I love the company’s commitment to making an excellent product and its pledge to give back to the community. I recently discovered that we give back in another way too—by bringing a smile to the faces of stressed-out and frustrated motorists all over the Northwest. I’ve been driving the glassybaby van—filled with hundreds of glassybaby votives—to events all over Washington State, and I’ve noticed an unexpected and wonderful reaction: smiles! And plenty of them. Despite being caught in rush-hour traffic, the moment drivers see the van emblazoned with the glassybaby logo and realize what my precious cargo consists of, they smile, they wave and they even let me merge. So, while I may help spread good feelings in the retail stores one, two and even three glassybaby at a time, I can reach an even bigger audience on our highways and byways by spreading joy 250—or more—glassybaby at a time. Look for me when you’re out and about. Give me a wave and a smile. I promise you’ll get the same in return.
Until next time,
Join us this Sunday, September 29th, at our Madrona studio from 2-5pm. Sunshine Kids Foundation will be hosting an event to benefit children fighting cancer. The event is open to the public and we’d love to see you there!

10% from the sale of each ‘hudson’ will be donated to The Shanti Project to provide emotional and practical support to San Francisco’s most vulnerable individuals living with life-threatening illness
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.
