Last November, we dedicated 3 days of the IndieGoGo Give Light, Get Light campaign to send LuminAID lights to three Pencils of Promise primary schools in Laos. Our goal was to pledge 300 lights to the Na Mai, Xongja, and Phayong primary schools. Over 450 lights were donated to the three schools during the campaign. Above are some of the images collected during the first distribution of the scholarship packages. We are incredibly touched to see and hear how excited the kids were to receive a LuminAID light. All of the students live in homes without any electricity and the LuminAID lights provide them with a safe source of light to study by at night. A big thanks to Pencils of Promise for helping to distribute the LuminAID lights to these young students and to everyone who donated lights to this project!
Emergencies come at unexpected times. That’s part of what makes them emergencies: you don’t see them coming.
But even if you can’t predict a lightning storm or flash flood coming in, you can prepare yourself against it.
We put our heads together with our partners at The Dyrt to give you these three scenarios you should be aware of, and tips for how to prepare so you and your family stay safe.
