For the Spring 2022 cycle of the Gift of Light Partner Program, we’ve chosen four organizations to receive donated Chandler Chargers and Luke Lights. Each of these organizations share common values with Unite to Light - their projects align with one of our focus areas: improving global health, assisting those experiencing homelessness, aiding in education, and helping those facing disasters. Lights and Chargers for this program were generated through our Buy One | Give One program; for every light we sell, we donate one. These are the projects that directly benefit from the “Give One” portion of our sales:
Mary and Ronald have big dreams like many kids their age, but living in rural Uganda, their options are limited. The gift of Luke Lights last year has their future looking brighter.
The effects of the climate crisis appear in many facets of our lives including our worsening air quality, rise in global temperatures and sea levels, and natural disasters such as wildfires, droughts, and floods. It can feel daunting to try to make a difference, but we can all take small steps to make an impact and mitigate these effects, even if it’s not ‘your’ home. We’ve all grown up hearing and reading about “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, but what does it mean in practice? If you’re interested in making a difference but don’t know where to start, there are a handful of ways to “greenify” your apartment and/or dorm
Every year Unite to Light makes a plan that includes providing our solar Luke Lights and Chandler Chargers to people experiencing disasters. We depend on your help and generosity to fund these response and recovery efforts. And while we have several long time partners (like Direct Relief) we can count on to help with distribution, we never quite know where those disasters will strike or how big the “give” will be.
2021 proved to be another tumultuous year with fires, floods, freezes, hurricanes and earthquakes that impacted us close to home and around the globe. Our supporters, like you, funded thousands of units to help people who had lost everything. Read on to hear about a few of the projects you helped support this year, and also grab your “Stay” or “Go” Checklist so that you’re prepared when a disaster strikes.
