more than the bottom line!

It’s no secret that ltd365 LOVES glassbaby. We invited their founder, Lee Rhodes, to speak at our 2012 conference. We told you the story of how and why the company launched, and shared with you what a shinning example of a soulful company they are. We even announced when Lee was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Entrepreneur Magazine. And, yes it’s true, several of us have at least one glassybaby adorning our homes. And for the record, this is pure love, no glassybabys have been received in exchanged for this post.

Aside from our adoration of these beautiful objects of delight, we wanted to applaud their pledge to giving back. Their example has inspired so many entrepreneurs to consider how a businesses can be committed to more than the bottom line. As of Oct 5, 2012, glassybaby has given $1,000,000 away to charities dedicated to health, healing and quality of life.

Lee shares, “So many stories begin and are fostered around these little beacons of hope. Creating memories, gifting and receiving, lighting and sharing, our community is strengthened and supported by glassybaby giving. As a company, we are determined to stay true to our mission, we are grateful to our community for sharing in our journey, remembering that as each of us moves through our own story, it is our own voice we must listen to, it is our light that must shine.”
