Light not only helps us to SEE - but it helps us to learn, connect, grow and thrive.
Sadly 63% of Haitians are without access to electricity still TODAY. For these families, having electricity means more than just “light”- it means increased studying time for a growing child, it means a safe walk home amidst a world of darkness, it means that health and medical professionals can do what they do best- regardless of the time of day.
Safety also plays a huge role in the absence of electricity. Of the 1.1 billion people living without electricity, most rely on dangerous, toxic, and expensive kerosene as their primary source of light.
Did you know that more women are severely burned by kerosene-related accidents each year than are diagnosed with HIV and TB combined? Or that exposure to smoke from kerosene kills nearly 2 million people annually? Access to solar lighting not only lights people's worlds, but it helps to save lives.
With the “Be The Light’ Campaign we will be donating solar powered lights to these families in need .
These donations will go SO far!
TOTAL FUNDRAISING GOAL: $20,000
$15 - provides one light to a family in need
$100 - provides 3 lights to families in need
$500 - provides 33 lights to an ENTIRE class! Helping children to do their homework
Or donate in any monetary value - $20, $50, $100, $500, $1000 and more
