Give the Gift of Light!

With the holiday season coming up, LuminAID is proud to announce its holiday campaign, "Give the Gift of Light!" Buy LuminAID lights for yourself, friends, and family, while also donating matching lights to those in-need around the world. We are partnering with Pencils of Promise (Ghana), CAN-DO (Haiti), Responsible Charity (India), and various organizations in the Philippines. Each light comes with a custom tribute card that says how many lights you donated and the name of the organization you picked to receive the matching lights. Your purchase will cover the cost of one light that will be sent to you, as well as the donation of one LuminAID light and all associated shipping and distribution costs. Over the past year, LuminAID has distributed more than 5000 lights across projects in 15 countries. We are so grateful for the support of our fans and hope to send many more lights over the holiday season!

When Anna and Andrea were attaching batteries and solar panels together to make the first solar inflatable lanterns in their kitchen, the two graduate students knew little about how far their lights would go. 5 years later, the little idea of the LuminAID light found its way to Malawi in southeast Africa, to help families whose houses has been destroyed by extreme flooding. Anna and Andrea had the opportunity to help out, and see the impact of LuminAID lights in person -- for the first time.
