Giving Back With The Gift of Light
Civilization has come so far throughout history. We’ve built machines to build machines. We’ve created instant communication that can be accessed globally. Seemingly impossible advancements have been made in science, in energy, and in health care. Still, with all of those advancements, there are approximately 1.8 Billion people who have little to no access to reliable and affordable energy.
Here in the U. S., when my child is sick on a Friday night I have the luxury of taking her to a pediatric clinic open through the night. They are able to run tests and evaluate my child with equipment and if needed they can electronically send my child’s prescription to a pharmacy that is open all night. In other areas of the world parents are not so lucky. Their clinics stop when the sun go down. Those children have to make it until daylight or be seen by the light of a kerosene lamp (now known to be toxic) and hope for the best with whatever medical tools are available.
Now imagine that there is a solution to meet the basic need for light. Direct Energy has partnered with MPOWERD™ to help bring solar-powered, reliable Luci® lights to parts of the world that need it most through their Give Brighter Plan .
The Luci light is both durable and inflatable. Running on solar power alone, this light can brighten any place for up to 12 hours. Just think of how many people can benefit from the light these bring. Schools and businesses will no longer need to stop just because the sun is going down. Children will be able to read and work on school work in the evening to further advance their lives. The possibilities are endless! Through Direct Energy’s efforts, they have helped to distribute over 10,000 lights!
If you sign up for the Direct Energy Give Brighter 12 plan, a 12 month fixed-rate energy plan, you will receive one Luci light and one will also be donated to a person in desperate need of light!
