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.

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.
