About Us

Glow Within Institute

Glow Within Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Silicon Valley. Founded by Christine Joy in 2019 to lead the crystal movement - using crystals to ignite the light within. We are building an education center for the teaching of crystals in meditation and holistic healing online and offline. Our online and offline center will be open to the public for free forever. 

Right now our only source of funding comes from the revenue of crystal jewelry on this site. All proceeds of crystal jewelry goes to our nonprofit to fund our education center. Our crystal jewelry collections are designed and crafted by Christine Joy at her sunny home studio in Silicon Valley. 

Our first project is making a series of short animation films about crystals. Animation films are fun and engaging ways for kids to learn about crystals. Providing innovative educational resources about crystals for the next generation is the core of our mission. Each short film is about one crystal. Based on the example of the Bible Project, a nonprofit that makes animation films about each book of the Bible, each 5 minute animation film costs about $10,000 at lease. Our goal is to make one film every quarter. Our first film is rose quartz and we aim to raise $10,000 through proceeds of crystal jewelry on this site and donation by the end of June 2020. This year of 2020, we strive to make the first three films in the order of rose quartz, amethyst and lapis lazuli. All films will be available on our website for educational purpose for free forever. 

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us and when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen. - Henry Stanley Haskins. 

Our online education center is coming soon and offline workshop events will be posted on our social media accounts. Subscribe or follow us to stay tuned.

We also accept donations and 50% of your donations are tax exempt. In addition, we provide Gift Card options for you to gift our crystal jewelry to your beloved ones while making a contribution to our education center. Lastly, our Joy Club is another way for you to make a continuous contribution to us by subscribing to our monthly crystal jewelry packages.

Thank you all very much for your kind support. We wouldn't be here without your generosity and trust. We want to thank each one of you who enables us to make the world a better place.
