JOIN A GLOBAL TRAVEL TEAM

TRAVEL. SERVE. HELP LIGHT THE WORLD.

Our Global Travel Teams include people who are deeply committed to service and value the adventure of travel to remote and challenging destinations. Most are quick to action, rarely tire, never quit, and have a "Can do” attitude! 

Our teams include people from all walks of life.  From corporates executives to those with dirt under the fingernails.  From buttoned up students to those with beards and tattoos. From rock star working wives to stay at home moms who can tear open a tin can with their bare hands, all are welcome to join a Global Travel Team. Anyone who owns a tee shirt that reads "100% World-Changer" is our type of candidate.

Join a travel team. Change the world. Change your life.

Ditch your device to light up a life.

What does it mean to go dark?

Many of us take light for granted, but 1.1 billion people around the world live without it every day. By going dark and unplugging from social media between sunset and sunrise, you can help Watts of Love make a difference. Go Dark to experience what it’s like to live without a modern luxury and help us bring solar-powered lights to the individuals who need it most.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum I have to raise?

$50 is our suggested minimum per participant because that’s all it takes to give a light to a family living in darkness.


How will the funds be used?

Watts of Love provides solar lights to families who are living in darkness around the world. We focus on the areas that need it most and provide international disaster relief where necessary.

All GO DARK GIVE LIGHT donors receive email updates after our distribution trips to see how their contributions are making a difference.


Does Watts of Love have additional educational resources for students and groups?

Yes. Explore our site and check out our Additional Resources for downloadable content that sheds additional light on the issue and how we’re trying to fix it. GO DARK GIVE LIGHT is a perfect fit for solar science units and “Screen-Free” initiatives.


Are all donations tax-deductible?

Everyone who donates to the GO DARK GIVE LIGHT campaign online or via check will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Watts of Love is a registered 501©3 charitable organization.
