On the road again….to San Francisco

"Joy Glassybaby" 2012 oil on canvas 8 x 8 inches | by Trina Chow

As bright and unwavering as the glow from a glassybaby is the inspirational community that has grown up around them.  We never tire of hearing how glassybaby came into someone’s life, and how they are using glassybaby to transform their life and the lives of others.

A favorite customer, who has taken our mission of ‘giving back’ to heart, is Trina Chow.   Trina was given a glassybaby four or five years ago when a friend of hers moved to Seattle.   When Trina next traveled to Seattle, she and her friend visited our Madrona store where she was able to watch our glassblowers creating glassybaby.   Trina discovered her passion for these little vessels of hope and light!

Trina is one of several people planning the inaugural Immediate Impact Breast Cancer Walk, which will take place in San Francisco on September 28-30, 2012.  With the goal of raising $100,000, walk participants will cover 55 miles over three days.  Proceeds will benefit low-income and under-served breast cancer patients in the San Francisco area.

Trina’s latest effort to give back has inspired us to pack up a variety of glassybaby and venture to San Francisco.  On Sunday, August 19th, glassybaby will join forces with Trina at an open-to-the-public event at the Presidio in San Francisco.  Please join us for an afternoon of light, colorlove and giving!  10% of the sales from each glassybaby will be donated to the Immediate Impact Breast Cancer Walk.

We would love to see you this Sunday!
