Mission Statement

The Lightweaver Foundation is a 501(c)3 established in 2015 by Brandon and Emily Sanderson, and affiliated with Dragonsteel Entertainment, LLC.

All people have basic needs, which include food, water, shelter, and clothing. We want to do our part to provide these things to those in need. We also believe that feeding the mind contributes to individual well being and to the good of society as a whole. Therefore, we strive to promote literacy and make books available to any who lack them. We work with established non-profits as well as using our own resources to fill these needs in both our local community and in the wider world.

2021 Limited Edition Holiday Ornament Fundraiser

This holiday season, we are supporting Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital- Miller Family Campus in Lehi to help kids access creative and fun academic assistance and resources through a program called the School Zone.

Our 2021 ornament is handmade locally by Holdman studios. Each ornament is hand blown, embedded with metallic dircro, and machine etched. The etching showcases the DDF ship, year and foundation logo.  All funds from your ornament purchase will go directly to the Intermountain Foundation to support the school zone and will be matched directly by Brandon and Emily Sanderson.

There are several ways you can purchase your 2021 holiday ornament and support The Lightweaver Foundation and Intermountain Foundation.

Due to the nature of a handmade item each ornament will be different and may not look exactly like the picture.


Due to the process of locating a professional ornament artist and the nature of crafting each ornament by hand, the 2021 ornaments will not ship until after the current holiday season. We apologize for this inconvenience and plan to launch any future ornament fundraisers earlier in the season to ensure they are shipped with plenty of time to be displayed and gifted during the current season.

Pre-order ornaments are $59.00 plus shipping and will ship early 2022.

The pre-order will be open for three weeks and will close on Friday, December 10th at 10 PM MST. Once closed no other ornaments for this season will be available to purchase.


Ornaments at Dragonsteel Mini Con will be ready to take home and available for the holiday season. Each ornament will be $59.00 and will come packaged.


During our filming process Brandon learned the process to make an ornament and successfully completed two ornaments. If you would like to bid on these one of kind pieces you can check them out here.


Please use the form below if you would like to donate ONLY to The Lightweaver Foundation. If you would like to receive an ornament please use the “purchase now” link highlighted above.
