We are all acutely aware of the heartbreaking suffering occurring in Japan as a result of the 9.0 earthquake and accompanying tsunami that struck the northeast coast of the country on March 11. This epic disaster has been described by the Prime Minister of Japan as the country’s worst since the Second World War.
On Thursday, March 31, 10% from all store and web sales will be donated to the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief and support for Japan, on behalf of the worldwide glassybaby community.
glassybaby travels to Africa: There is now an "elephant" in Kenya! Did you ever suspect such a thing? glassybaby "elephant" packed its trunk and went to check out its ancestors.
Thanks to Julie of Conservation International, this mellow, yet sumptuous glassybaby made the trip to bask in the equatorial locale of its ideological inception. We love her wonderful picture of the Maasai people joyfully holding one aloft!
And I think it feels right at home, don't you?
We also have a "seattle sunset" shining in the Lone Star State as sweet as the yellow rose of Texas. A friend, Sue, dispatched one down there to her brother and his wife. They, in turn, shared it with their dinner guests, who were so taken with its warmth and geniality that they all, then and there, went to the website to enjoy the charms of the whole glassybaby line.
Here you can observe Preben admiring the alluring characteristics of "seattle sunset":
As Sue noted at the end of her letter, glassybaby "is illuminating the world."
Until next time,
