Hurricane Maria has brought devastation to Puerto Rico, wiping out water, power and communication. While the total impact is still unknown, some reports are saying that it will be months before power is fully restored to the island. Imagine waking up one day to your home gone, to the entire infrastructure you depended on simply missing.
Our fellow Americans are devastated. Until rebuilding efforts can light their night again, YOU can help with a little solar lamp. For the price of lunch you can send a $10 Luke Light to someone in Puerto Rico. Donations can be made through the buttons below.
All donations to this page will fund the delivery of solar powered lights to the people of Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Islands impacted by the devastating hurricanes this year. Importantly, these lights will be delivered by Direct Relief, one of the most effective charities in the world. Working with Direct Relief means that the lights will go to the people who need it most: first responders, medical professionals, health clinics, and community members seeking aid.
In addition to your donations, Unite to Light is committed to sending 100 of our "Give One" cell phone chargers to the relief effort. These lights with USB chargers were paid for by generous people like you who purchased a cell phone charger for themselves at some point in the last year. These purchases created a 'credit'. These credits will now supply cell phone chargers to Puerto Rico. You can create more credits by using the Buy a Light, Give a Light button.
UPDATE October 2, 2017
We delivered our first shipment of 1,500 Luke Lights and 50 Lumen Chargers to Direct Relief. If you have previously donated to this page, your lights have arrived in Puerto Rico. Thank you.
If you haven't donated yet, it's not too late! We are planning one more shipment in December. The lights will be distributed through Direct Relief to the 62 community clinics. Primary recipients will be the staff and patients who still don't have power in their homes.
