Blenko Glass, one of the oldest handmade glass factories in America, has for the third year, joined with JDRF (the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) to produce a special edition piece of glass. $5 from the sale of each piece will go to the JDRF. JDRF is a major charitable 501 organization dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research. JDRF's stated vision is "a world without type 1 diabetes."
Blenko glass joins with thousands of people who want to combat this disease and our contribution to this cause is this production of a special edition piece of glass. The 2018 chosen Blenko form is a Turquoise handcrafted hanging suncatcher or holiday ornament that measures 4 inches in diameter. Each will vary slightly in shape and features a hand drilled hole for hanging. The reverse will be our etched Blenko name, logo and the year.
Blenko's new design for 2018 incorporates a blue circle, the universal symbol for diabetes. The $5 donation from each sales goes to the regional JDRF in Cincinnati, Ohio.
