Inspired by the healing light of a candle in a hand-blown votive, glassybaby was founded by three-time cancer survivor Lee Rhodes. 10% of all sales of glassybaby products go to organizations that help people, animals and the planet heal. The company has given hope, beauty, kindness and more than $6.4 million to organizations through its white light fund. The votives and drinkers are hand-blown by artisan glassmakers in Seattle and Berkeley, and each color has a significant name and story, making them lasting, thoughtful gifts that give back to the community.

“Gaining access and visibility in front of Prime members through Prime Now will enable us to raise even more money for deserving organizations that help people, animals and the planet heal, by providing thoughtful, meaningful gifts to people who want a convenient and fast option for gift-giving,” said Rhodes.

The newest glassybaby votive, ‘petal’, is available on Amazon Prime Now – just in time for Mother’s Day. ‘petal’ is a stunning white votive crafted with colored accents along the base that look like rose petals. Additional votives with sentimental and playful names for Mother’s Day that are available via Amazon Prime Now include ‘mom’, ‘goodness’, ‘home sweet home’ and ‘thank you’.
