ABOUT THE LUMINARY

The San Francisco Zoo

(27)

The origins of the San Francisco Zoo can be traced back to 1886. Once part of the now-defunct amusement park Woodward’s Gardens, the menagerie opened with a lone California grizzly bear. The zoo’s mission has evolved from an animal showcase to a state-of-the-art care and wellness facility focused on conservation. It is home to over 1,000 exotic, endangered, and rescued animals representing more than 250 species. The zoo also has several lush gardens of native and foreign plants, making it a place for family memories. The historic 1921 Dentzel Carousel and the 1904 miniature Little Puffer Steam Train are treasured by generations of visitors. In the fall of 2013, the zoo reopened the newly restored Elinor Friend Playground.

glassybaby

glassybaby was founded by Lee Rhodes, a three-time cancer survivor with a vision of launching a business devoted to the mission of giving. Her line of vibrantly colored glass votives is a favorite among interior designers, editors, Martha Stewart, and elegant hosts everywhere. Creating each glassybaby involves eight hands, 2000 degrees of focused heat, and a multi-layered glassblowing process. As a result, no two hues glow quite alike. Over the last 20 years, the company has donated over $4.7 million to charitable causes and in 2015, Lee established the White Light Fund, a 501c3 organization to assist glassybaby in its goal to promote hope and healing.

Founder of Urban Hiker San Francisco

In 2004, Alexandra Kenin visited San Francisco for the first time and never wanted to return to her home on the East Coast. She did. But in 2007, she finally bought her one-way ticket back to the Bay Area as a Google marketing manager. On weekends, the transplanted Jersey girl explored her new home on foot. When she discovered the Embarcadero via the Vallejo and Filbert Street steps, she became hooked on urban hiking. Today, she has fallen in with a band of fellow enthusiasts. Through monthly day hikes of up to 30 miles, Alexandra and her friends explore secret, hidden spots throughout the city.

Tipping Point

Tipping Point screens non-profits rigorously to find, fund and partner with the most promising groups helping low-income people achieve self-sufficiency. 100% of every dollar donated fights poverty. Since 2005, Tipping Point has raised more than $120 million to educate, employ, house and support those in need in the Bay Area, helping 22,000 people get on the path out of poverty in the last year alone.

The Adventure Project

The Adventure Project, an organization focused on creating jobs in developing countries, gives people the tools, education, and resources to become entrepreneurs, so they can serve their own communities with improved health, decreased hunger, a safer environment, and clean water. The nonprofit channels charity strategically towards jobs that lift people out of poverty while transforming local communities with life-saving services, using rigorous data to understand the most effective ways to move people out of poverty for good. They “add venture,” believing that when local economies thrive, children survive and families escape poverty faster. Founded in 2010, the Adventure Project has created 862 jobs impacting over one million people in Haiti, India, Uganda, and Kenya.
