The Big D.R.M.S. Project, Ben Belgrad's philanthropic glass enterprise, combines stems designed by collaborating artists with Belgrad’s borosilicate cups and glasses. Each color used is associated with a unique charity, and for every purchase, a minimum $100 donation is made. Belgrad attempts to partner with charities that have little to no overhead in terms of operational costs and staffing. Belgrad discusses the origins of The Big D.R.M.S. project and how collectors and artists can get involved.
