About glassybaby
glassybaby are handmade, colorful glass candle holders created by Seattle artists in 400+ colors. The company was founded by a three time cancer survivor who found great hope and healing in the light of a lit handmade votive holder. She wanted to spread that hope and help the many patients she met in chemotherapy waiting rooms who could not afford basic costs like groceries and bus fare. As of October 5, 2012, glassybaby has donated more than $1 million from sales to charities dedicated to healing. For more information, visit
