It’s sundown. For 1.1 billion people without electricity, that means darkness. I’m signing off social media until sunrise to help raise money to provide safe, life changing electric light.

Studies have shown that having access to light can have tremendous benefits, both culturally and economically, for impoverished communities. It extends the day so they have more time to work, study, cook and connect with friends and family.

A small donation of $50 to my campaign page is all it takes to provide a family with a life changing light. See you at sunrise.
