Due to overwhelming support from generous souls like you, we are putting a hold on the distribution of cups for Mike’s fundraiser via this website. We were able to not only raise over $14,000 for Mike’s recovery fund, but also gathered words of love, encouragement and support from over 20 cities in California, 12 different states and two countries! The outpouring of support has brought us to tears as we transcribed messages of hope, packaged up donated cups and wrote shipping labels for destinations near and far. We can not thank you enough for sharing your energy of strength and healing with Mike.
We are currently working on a new cup design that will be available for purchase at a local restaurant and at a large benefit event this coming spring. If you would like information on these events please submit your address on the contact us.
You are of course still welcome to share your words of love with Mike via our contact us page.
Again, thank you for your support of our dear friend Mike!
A victim of the horrific Tubbs fire
On October 9th, 2017, our dear friend, Mike Hanson, was one of the victims of the horrific Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa. Like so many, he lost his home but unfortunately he lost so much more. His daughter, Christina, who was in a wheel chair was not able to escape the fast moving fire. Mike escaped by foot with his dog. He was saved by his neighbor who brought Mike to the hospital.
Supporting and raising funds for Mike
In our continued effort to support and raise funds for Mike, we have called upon the greater glass blowing community. Glass artists from around the United States have contributed hand blown tumblers to our cause. For a donation of $50 or more you will receive one of these unique hand crafted cups delivered to an address of your choice. All of the donations will be deposited directly into an account for Mike to use for rebuilding his home, addressing his long term medical issues and what ever other expenses he may face on his long road to recovery.
A message of love
While every dollar donated is necessary and important, the real need for this campaign is to send a message of love and support to Mike as he fights to regain his strength. Please take a moment to share a thought with Mike. We will be constantly reading these to him over the coming weeks and months, letting him know there are others pulling for him and hopefully inspiring him to keep his spirit alive.
