glassybaby are handmade, colorful glass candle holders created by Seattle artists in 300+ colors. The company was founded by a three time cancer survivor who found great hope and healing in the light of a lit handmade votive holder. She wanted to spread that hope and help the many patients she met in chemotherapy waiting rooms who could not afford basic costs like groceries and bus fare. To date, glassybaby has given more than $2 million from sales to a variety of charities dedicated to healing. For more information, visit www.glassybaby.com.

About One Day’s Wages
Did you know? Over 1.2 billion people live in extreme poverty in the world today. 61 million school aged children are out of school, with over half in sub-Saharan Africa. Nearly 900 million people do not have access to clean water. Lack of basic sanitation and unclean water causes 80 percent of illness and disease. One Day’s Wages was founded in 2009 by Eugene and Minhee Cho, an average family with three children living in
Seattle. After having the opportunity to travel to developing nations to see with their own eyes some of the
faces behind the statistics above, they decided to contribute their entire year's wages for 2009 ($68,000)
to help kick-start ODW. Today, One Day’s Wages is a grassroots movement of people, stories, and
actions to alleviate extreme global poverty. www.onedayswages.org.
