Seattle-based glassybaby was founded in 2001 by three-time cancer survivor Lee Rhodes. During her chemo treatments, Lee met many patients who could not afford basic needs such as bus fare, childcare or groceries. When she founded glassybaby, it was with the core mission of helping to alleviate these struggles. The giving mission has since expanded to support hope and healing for people, animals and the environment. To date, glassybaby and its white light fund have donated more than $3.5 million to over 100 nonprofits. The company hopes to raise another $1 million for nonprofit partners in 2015.
