A Giveaway!

I have a little giveaway for my wonderful DOC peeps.

It's not a pump pack or a medic alert bracelet or juice boxes. What is it, you ask?

It's a lovely little something just for you: 

It is a "Hope" glassybaby.

Here is the description from glassybaby's website:


I live in hospitals and crowded school rooms. I'm there when planes and teenagers are late coming home. I am the future and people give me to those they care about. Some of those people refer to me as the light at the end of the tunnel.
I am hope
I am glassybaby

Never heard of glassybaby? I hadn't either, until my sweet momma got me one last year. glassybabies are beautiful, hand-blown glass cups that can be used for a variety of things - a bud vase, votive holder or even as a drinking glass. They are gorgeous, heavy, and cast a beautiful glow when you light a tea light inside them. They are all unique and one-of-a-kind, handmade pieces of glass.

The best part about glassybaby? They are a charity-driven organization. From their website:

"At the heart of glassybaby is our mission of goodwill donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to charities dedicated to health, healing and quality of life, thereby helping to provide a safety net to those in need. So many stories begin and are fostered around these little beacons of hope. Creating memories, gifting and receiving, lighting and sharing, our community is strengthened and supported by glassybaby giving. As a company, we are determined to stay true to our mission, we are grateful to our community for sharing in our journey, remembering that as each of us moves through our own story, it is our own voice we must listen to, it is our light that must shine."

Love that! 

I use my glassybabies for many things: 

On my mantle - oh how I wish the blue glassybaby was called Hope (for diabetes)! This one is called "Fortitude."

Our Thanksgiving table - all of my mom's glassybabies with flowers! Beautiful.

Today, my mom and I are giving a Hope glassybaby to one of you. So you may light it, feel it's calming warmth...and some hope when the night is dark and the numbers are not so great.

So, leave me a comment! Please include your name! The giveaway will run through midnight on Wednesday, December 5th. I'll print out the list of comments and have Adam draw one out of a hat!

**This post is not sponsored by glassybaby - my momma purchased the glassybaby to giveaway to one of you!
