Great article in the Seattle Time's about our member Eben Horton. Keep up the good work.

Nice to see it being done in safe places.
In the early years, there have been events like this that have wiped out newly planted vegetation in a Seattle beach park and killed old growth beach stuff in Oregon by crazy glass searchers.

Very good for hurting communities.

Congratulations!

I still haven't read either of the articles. Running into paywalls.

That is really great, Eben!
It reminds me of the Burningmanners, coins I have made to give away at Burningman. Every year is different. I make 100 to several hundred and hand them out to folks I take a likin’ to. “I like this art…are you the artist?” ; “Thanks for helping; I have something for you” or “(unspoken: you have a nice smile) here is something for you”. It is wonderful and uplifting to be able to give a little something to the world and to see the joy in the eyes of the world.
I recommend that all blowers make tokens to give away. You will enjoy life more! The world will be a better world! Try another world!

I have been making and giving away a "$20 glass coin" for about 30 years. I have handed them out as Thankyous and Tips around the world. The smiles that come with it are truly amazing to see and feel. And get me out of trouble when I really needed some kind of miracle to save the day. I never ever travel with out one.
