What is One Heart Bulgaria?

Every Purchase Makes A Difference

We donate 3% of profit to a non-profit entity, every purchase, every time. We personally love One Heart Bulgaria.  You can visit them at
Every Purchase Makes A Difference

"Is a non-profit humanitarian organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Bulgarian orphans. We do this by providing supplemental food, hygiene items, and access to medicines and medical care. In addition, and most importantly, our programs are designed to provide the emotional support, guidance, and love that the Bulgarian orphans so desperately need in order to truly thrive.
In the past, not much has been known or exposed about Bulgarian orphans and the orphanages in which they live. As a result, very little attention and humanitarian aid has been given to these invisible children. One Heart Bulgaria invites you, your families, and civic groups to join us in changing the lives of approximately 8,700 Bulgarian orphans living in 144 orphanages. "

Auction for Love

I had a friend introduce me to Kim,who's Mother passed away from Cancer. They were doing an auction to help Fight The Cause. Glitzy Glass donated a special order pendant and some colored glass items. Below is a thank you card from Kim.

When you give, you get back. I have received far more than I have ever given. I am grateful for all the good people who in essence "give back" to society.

Tribute to Rex J. Walker

I made these pendants as a gift--instead of all the close women. I was grateful to give them the chance to remember their father each day they chose to wear it.

My uncle Rex Walker aka R.J. passed away last week. We loved him so so dearly. He was the best uncle ever...He was so fun at the family parties. He would be mischevious and have waterfights, and tickle like crazy till you said "Mercy!Mercy!"

AMERICAN FORK — For the second time in two days, someone fell off a cliff at Timpanogos Cave National Monument, and Thursday it was a monument employee who fell to his death.

Rex Walker, a maintenance worker for the monument, had driven off in a two-wheeled motorized trail bike around 1:30 p.m. to fix some lighting outages. He was fairly close to the cave when he somehow drove off of the trail and fell more than 500 feet to his death, Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. Park officials said he fell near the cave exit on a portion of the 1.5-mile, paved trail that leads visitors to and from the cave.

"We don't know what happened, but somehow he fell off the trail," Cannon said. "There were other people
around, but no one was with him. Other employees heard the fall, but we're still investigating to get an idea of what he was doing when he fell."

Staff members at the park tried to rappel down the steep slope to reach the 58-year-old man, who had fallen down a narrow rock-slide chute an additional 300 feet or more. Park superintendant Denis Davis rapelled to where the motorbike had landed but couldn't reach or even see where Walker was. Two National Park Service rangers, including Timpanogos Cave Chief Ranger Michael Gosse, hiked up from below to where the worker had fallen and found him dead.
