glassybaby White Light Fund is a 501 (c)(3) 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.
The glassybaby White Light Fund was created in 2015 to support causes consistent with this mission. Thanks to the glassybaby community who loves to give kindness, we have donated over $10.5 million dollars so far.
Every glassybaby gives through the glassybaby White Light Fund.
