Donate Light to Puerto Rico & US Virgin Island
By contributing one light to the Puerto Rico and US Virgin Island relief effort, you are helping a family of 6 people. Right now less than 40% of the island has power. During our recent visit we went into the hills just 15 minutes outside of San Juan and no houses had power. Many of the elderly living alone have been locked in with no light when the sun goes down. Through our partners, such as Studio Unite, Third Wave Volunteers, Solar4PR, Operation Blessings, United Way and others, Solight Design has shipped and distributed over 15,000 lights. Our goal is to send 10,000 lights now and another 10,000 and then another.
One light from you can make a big difference. to an entire family. Many of these people have been through some of the worst traumas of their lives losing everything they own. A little light gives them hope. As Mayor Yulin Cruz of San Juan called our lights…”They are not just a cube of light but a cube of hope”. Help us light up their world.
Donate Light to Sierra Leon (Partner organization EnviroOne)
EnviroOne is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2007 with the goal of promoting and fostering a sustainable future through environmental, agricultural and microfinance activities in the US and around the world. A seven-member board of directors runs the company while a talented group of individuals with experience in government, the private sector, and academia manages the day-to-day activities of EnviroOne.
At EnviroOne we believe that all it takes is three (knowledge, good health, and food) to change, empower and transform someone’s life. That is why education and capacity building (through our instruction and micro-finance programs), health/environment (through our clean water programs), and food (through our sustainable agriculture programs) are at the core of what we do. With these three, we have been able to empower and transform people’s lives especially in the poorest regions of the world. However, the availability of light energy can greatly enhance our efforts in education and capacity building. This is why we seek a partnership with SoLight Design.
Donate Light to Third Wave Volunteers
In a world of growing natural and man-made disasters, EVERYONE IS NEEDED.
September 11th 2001, Katrina, 2004 Tsunami, Haiti/Nepal/China/Mexico earthquakes, Sandy Super-storm, Philippines typhoons, Chicago gun violence, Haiti/Texas/Florida/ Puerto Rico/ USVI and Dominica Hurricanes, Guatemala/ Hawaii/ Indonesia/Equador volcano eruptions and the Syrian refugee crisis- the list goes on. Soon we will have a tragedy for every date in the calendar. And with every new disaster, the old one fades away far before the recovery does.
As political animals, we have the intelligence and power to do so much. We can fly to the moon and unravel relativity theories and DNA codes, but the things we need to do now are a lot simpler than that.
THE THIRD WAVE is a movement of Volunteerism around the world, based on the concept that "EVERYONE IS NEEDED". From long-term missions in far off countries to volunteering on a computer for a few hours after work.
The process of helping people is often a complicated task but at the same time everyone is needed to help with not many skills required. All small skills add up to make a real difference: from carrying boxes of water to peeling carrots or creating art with newly orphaned children.
THE THIRD WAVE volunteer has a humble but dynamic attitude using common sense, love and a whole lot of guts to get stuff done no matter how hard the obstacle. It’s about cutting through the red tape of bureaucracy to get help to the real people who need it and is about the human touch of giving love and hope to anyone who needs it.
The Third Wave teams works with many other great organizations and believe that we are stronger together than we are alone.
