Giving out Lights


Dear Friends,

Thank you for your generous gifts during 2013!  In Q4 last year we were fortunate to be featured by Oprah magazine and received many donations as a result.  Some of the projects these funds supported included a distribution in Tanzania, over 200 lights for typhoon relief in the Philippines, 260 lights for future distributions and support for the growth of the One Million Students program. With each light and donation you have changed someone's life for the better.  
Wishing you the very best for 2014.
        -From Anna Sidana and the One Million Lights Team
