Meet “rave green,” Benefiting Seattle
Sounders FC’s RAVE Foundation
SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#glassybaby–When Seattle Sounders FC won the MLS Championship last year, glassybaby
knew they earned a glassybaby color of their own, inspiring the debut of
the company’s newest votive “rave green,” new this month and benefiting Seattle
Sounders FC’s RAVE Foundation.
10 percent from the sale of each “rave
green” will be donated to Seattle Sounders FC’s RAVE Foundation,
dedicated to investing in communities by building small fields in urban
settings for free play, removing barriers to participation, and
supporting and creating innovative programming through soccer.
glassybaby first partnered with RAVE Foundation in December 2016,
donating over $12,000 to the organization.
“RAVE Foundation is thrilled to partner with glassybaby on the release
of ‘rave green’ — the first-ever Seattle Sounders FC-themed glassybaby.
Sounders fans know ‘Rave Green’ as the Club’s signature color — so how
appropriate to design and name the first glassybaby after ‘Rave,’” said
Ashley Fosberg, Executive Director for RAVE Foundation. “Proceeds
benefit Sounders FC’s official charity, RAVE Foundation — which uses
soccer as a vehicle to empower, inspire and strengthen communities
throughout the Puget Sound. This partnership provides critical support
to our most vulnerable communities and families.”
‘rave green’ can be purchased at all Seattle Sounders Pro Shops as well
as online at glassybaby.com
or at any of the glassybaby
stores in the Seattle area, including Madrona, University
Village and Bellevue.
“We’re elated to be partnering with Sounders’ RAVE Foundation long-term
so we can continue to support their efforts in making a positive impact
in the lives of our state’s youth,” said Lee Rhodes, glassybaby founder.
“The mission of the RAVE Foundation and their work with underserved
youth is perfectly in line with our giving philosophy of helping people,
animals and the planet heal.”
glassybaby are one-of-a-kind hand blown glass votives and drinkers made
by glassblowers in Seattle, WA, and Berkeley, CA. glassybaby come in
400+ rich colors, each with a unique name like “joy,” “hope,”
“gratitude,” “roots,” and “home.” glassybaby was founded in 2001 by
three-time cancer survivor Lee Rhodes. During her chemo treatments, Lee
met 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 – 10% of
each glassybaby is donated to help people, animals, and the planet heal.
To date, glassybaby has donated more than $6.3 million to more
than 400 nonprofit organizations. Learn
