Madrona’s own glassybaby, the unique votive candle company with a studio and shop on Union just off 34th Ave, got some love from the Huffington Post’s Impact section this week.
The story, Glassybaby Candles Light Up New York Charity Scene, highlights founder and cancer survivor Lee Rhodes’ mission of supporting cancer charities and other nonprofit organizations, particularly in New York where glassybaby opened another shop last fall.
The company will be providing candles to Ellen’s Run, a Long Island event supporting breast cancer patients, and the Phoenix House Summer Party, a fundraiser for the organization’s work to help families affected by drug addiction.
For any purchases made online or at the Seattle and New York stores using the promotion code ‘Huff’, 10 percent will be donated to Conservation International to protect the environment.
glassybaby has been getting all kinds of national press this month, with an feature on CNN’s Larry King Live and a piece in Martha Stewart Living as well.
