2019 Ornament Collection - SOLD OUT!

About The Ornaments

The Kate Foundation for Rett Syndrome Research is proud to announce the release of our 2019 glass ornament collection for Rett syndrome research fundraising. All of the ornaments were hand-blown and crafted by leading artists on both coasts. The star-shaped ornaments were created by Luke Adams Glass Blowing Studio in Norwood, Massachusetts near Boston. The round ornaments were blown at Glass Eye Studio in Seattle, Washington.

How You Can Help

Since 2009, the Kate Foundation has sold more than 4,600 ornaments and shipped them to over 40 States, Australia, Britain, Canada and Germany. Please share this website and fundraising effort with friends, family and colleagues. The ornaments make great gifts for teachers, therapists, caregivers, neighbors and anyone else who appreciates spectacular glass art. They also make great grab bag presents and party hostess gifts for the holiday season.

Ornament Inspiration

Our visit to a cathedral with Kate was the inspiration for the ornament idea. Like many girls with Rett Syndrome, Kate loves vibrant colors, music and most anything that lights up. In July 2009, we visited family in Savannah, Georgia and attended mass at the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Soaring music and towering stained-glass windows mesmerized Kate for a large portion of the service and the ornament idea was born.
