Glassbaby 'Evelyn' Candle Holder (Nordstrom Exclusive)

 Exclusively available from Nordstrom Beauty, the Glassybaby ‘Evelyn’ candle honors the inspirational life of Evelyn Lauder. The beautiful candle is a hand blown glass votive in a special  shade of pink to represent the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This limited edition candle is on sale now in stores and online for $44, and 10% from the sale of each ‘Evelyn’ Glassybaby will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
 glassbaby Evenlyn, how cute is the box & bow? :)

It's great 10% of the sale of each 'Evelyn' candle holder will be going towards the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I'm happy to be able to blog about another pink product that bring awareness towards the cure. ^_^
 The candle holder comes with a little tea light candle to get you started right away!

 It takes four Seattle artists, three layers of molten glass and two thousand degrees to make one glassybaby. Each Evelyn glassybaby is a vivid pink in color, but since every glassybaby is a unique hand-made piece of art, each will shine with its own lively, signature glow when lit.

Partnering with Nordstrom, glassybaby created Evelyn in honor of Evelyn Lauder. Mrs. Lauder founded the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and 10% from the sale of each Evelyn glassybaby will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. A giving card is included with each Evelyn glassybaby.

For a limited time, available exclusively in Cosmetics at Nordstrom stores and Beauty on Nordstrom.com.

 Glass blowing and glass art is HUGE in Seattle. It's everywhere in our gorgeous city. There are so many talented artists, it's such a treat to be a Seattleite!
 Made by hand in Seattle!

 I'm finally putting all those free matches to good use!
 The amount of glow you get depends on how much water you fill in the candle holder.
The glass and candle really illuminate the room at night.

Nordstrom and glassybaby partner to honor Evelyn Lauder with commemorative votive

SEATTLE (May 31, 2012)  --  A tip for those seeking go-to gifts for girlfriends: Reconsider the bath salts and wine, and go for a home-décor good with a cult following  that lets you indulge your charitable side. Nordstrom and glassybaby have joined forces to create Evelyn, a vibrant pink glass votive perfect for gifting (and getting). The best part? 10% of all purchases will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with an initial donation of $25,000.

The two Seattle-based companies are partnering to recognize Lauder’s commitment to breast cancer research and prevention, a cause that hits close to home for Nordstrom.

“We’re proud to partner with glassybaby to honor the incredible life of Evelyn Lauder, who passed away in November of last year,” says Laurie Black, Executive Vice President of Cosmetics at Nordstrom. “This special project allows Nordstrom to honor Evelyn, as well as our employees and customers, by donating proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.”

glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes, a three-time cancer survivor, is thrilled Nordstrom is joining them in their mission of giving. “glassybaby is all about goodwill and giving back,” she says. “We love that another Seattle based company is joining us in our mission to donate money from sales back to charities helping cancer patients.

The Evelyn glassybaby is available now for $44 at cosmetics counters in Nordstrom stores nationwide, as well as online at nordstrom.com. It comes gift-giving-ready adorned with a bow.

glassybaby was founded by a three time cancer survivor who found great healing in the light of a handmade votive during her battle.  She wanted to spread that light and love.  Today, glassybaby has donated more than $875,000 from sales to charities dedicated to healing, quality of life and helping cancer patients with day to day needs during chemotherapy.  The handmade votives are created by a team of 70+ artists in more than 400 colors at a Seattle studio.  People give glassybaby as gifts of love, celebration, consolation and joy.
