With August’s appearance, summer is officially in full-swing.  I’m taking every opportunity to enjoy these long, warm days and the relaxation of a schedule that is not dictated by the school bell and homework deadlines.  For many, summer is synonymous with playing on or near the water.  Will August bring you near the sea?  I saw a sign on a recent trip to the Oregon coast that read:  “If you’re lucky enough to live near the beach, you’re lucky enough.” After a week on the coast, I couldn’t agree more.

Marine life and coastal environments worldwide are under increasing pressure from human use.  Sailors for the Sea, one of our glassybaby charitable partners, educates and engages the boating community in the worldwide protection of the oceans.  To purchase ‘ahoy’ or ‘welcome aboard’, click here.

When Jeff and Carin Towne welcomed their first child, Benjamin Ward, into the world in the summer of 2005, they were overjoyed.  In the preciousness of their new baby lay the hope and wonder and limitless possibilities exemplified in a new life.  Ben grew into a fiercely determined, passionate, loving little boy.  Nothing could have prepared the family for Ben’s diagnosis of stage-4 high risk neuroblastoma shortly after his second birthday.  Ben underwent an intense course of treatment that included chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplant, radiation, anti-body therapy and more.  Ben was in remission in July of 2008, only to relapse catastrophically in October.  He died on December 30, 2008.

It’s hard to imagine anything more difficult than losing a child to cancer. Many parents, if faced with these circumstances, would have wanted to leave the realm of cancer and cancer treatment far behind them.  Jeff and Carin chose to channel their heartbreak and loss into something to help others.  They established Ben Towne Pediatric Cancer Foundation to fund world-class research that will ultimately change the way childhood cancers are treated.  In the words of Carin Towne, “We will be a voice for pediatric cancer research — a voice for children who cannot speak for themselves.”  I think I know where Ben’s determination, passion and love came from.  Until there is a cure, please join us in the fight to end childhood cancer.  To purchase ‘cabo’, click here.

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. Perhaps you saw the third annual Stand Up To Cancer telethon last Friday night, which raised $81 million in pledges. Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Justin Timberlake, Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift and many other well-known entertainers joined forces to share their personal cancer stories and help raise money and awareness for this worthwhile cause.

glassybaby is proud to announce our collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer, and introduce our newest giving set which supports their initiative to accelerate innovative cancer research. glassybaby will donate to Stand Up To Cancer 10% from the purchase price of the ‘stand up’ set from now through July 1, 2014.

At glassybaby, we stand up for:

anyone who’s been on the receiving end of a cancer diagnosis;

anyone who’s lost their hair;

anyone who’s been too sick from treatments to get out of bed;

anyone who’s life has been forever altered by cancer.

We stand up for the 1,500 Americans that lose their life to cancer each day.
