It all started when, in 2011, I saw one of
these little lights at a Rotary Convention just before Muff and I went to Costa Rica in 2012
for a project we were working on. I thought of my mom's friends there who had started a
non-profit called The Bridge which helps to send Costa Rican Indigenious children to school.
These people live in villages in the mountains with no electricity. I thought of them having to
study by firelight or kerosine lamps. So we ordered and took 90 lights with us which were put
into backpacks which also had paper, and pencils and other school supplies. The picture above
is us giving one of the children a light. The look on his face whn he was shown how to turn it
on was priceless. He kept looking for a cord.
There is no cord... It's a SOLAR
Since then...the rest is history...with your
help I have been able to become The Light Lady...a new role for The Foot Lady! Your purchase of
these lights online and at our workshops have meant that I can send more lights where ever our
projects take us.
Our LED Solar Lights go to children in areas of
the world where there is no electricity by which they can study....
Since 2012 we have sent 100's to villages in
Costa Rica, Honduras, Kenya, Zimbabwe and to the homeless here in San Diego.
SHARE A LIGHT
The gift of light does not fit in a stocking or under the tree. But our
lamps do. Buy one for a child you know; give one to a child in
If you would like to help out....send us $20 -
you get one, a child somewhere in the world gets one...
