About The Globe of Goodwill
ABOUT THE GLOBE
The Globe of Goodwill is a beautiful work of art and a delightful collector's piece, but its contents give it its true value - love and friendship.
The Globe is a blown-glass sphere, with a ribbon of red - the colour of Christmas and affection. The Globe is handmade and every edition is limited. No two Globes are exactly the same but each of them is beautiful in its own way - just like every child of the world.
All proceeds will be donated to work for the benefit of children and other young people with disabilities. The name of The Globe is therefore symbolic of that which it represents.

The Globe of Goodwill has received the blessings
of the Bishop of Iceland, The Right Reverend Karl Sigurbjörnsson
God's blessing goes with this beautiful piece.
Blessings be upon the hands and in the thoughts of those who created it.
Blessings be upon the one who gives it and upon the one who receives it.
Blessings be upon those who benefit from it.
Where benevolence and affection are at work, the light of God and His angels will shine.
May that light shine upon you.
The Right Reverend Karl Sigurbjörnsson, Bishop of Iceland
