about

glassybaby foundation is a 501c3 based in Seattle, Washington, 

created to support organizations that promote hope and healing.

glassybaby began in 2001 when Lee Rhodes, a three time cancer survivor, felt hope from the light of a candle in a hand-blown glass votive. This inspired a business devoted to giving hope, beauty, and millions of dollars to help others heal.

glassybaby first created a 501c3 charity in 2015, to support causes consistent with this mission. Thanks to the glassybaby community who loves to give kindness, over $10.5 million dollars has been donated so far.

Every glassybaby gives through the glassybaby foundation.
