When I traveled back to the U.S. I became determined to do something for the people of Haiti. I didn't know what I could do that would help them over the long term and be totally sustainable.
One evening, while talking with people about my trip, the Luci Light was mentioned...and a seed was planted. The Luci Light is a small LED blow-up solar powered light. These lights are commonly used for outdoor backpacking and camping. The lights cost $14.95 each but the company will give a discount for third world charity.
For $13 dollars we have the opportunity to give light where there is darkness and bring hope to these kids' lives. Every morning thousands of kids wake up put their uniforms on and head to school. The school system is such an important institution for Haitians. For them to be able to read and study safely at night would give them a chance at a brighter future. Not only will the kids be able to study at home during the night but their family will be able to eat dinner together when the sun goes down!
I've have come to the realization that to be truly greatful for what I have I need to give something in return. This is an opportunity for all of us to really change someone's life for a relatively small amount of money. Please consider supporting this cause.
