Brighten the Future of Gaza's Children

Let your creativity shine to show Gaza's children you care #BrightFuture4GazasChildren

There’s a way to help Gaza’s children despite the inhumane blockade, now entering its 8th year.  Palestinian families in the Gaza Strip experience 12 hours of rolling blackouts every day.  Imagine being a child and not having light in your home after the sun goes down, having to resort to using dangerous kerosene lamps or candles to just do your homework.  That's why Rebuilding Alliance is asking you to help send solar Luci Lights to brighten the lives of Gaza's children. MPOWERD created Luci, an inflatable solar light as an affordable clean energy product that people could use in any situation because, as they put it, life doesn’t stop after the sun goes down. 

We ask you to bring your creativity forward to help send the fourth pallet with 2280 solar-powered Luci Original Lights to four NonGovernmental Organizations (NGOs) in Gaza.  Here's something wonderful:  for every Luci Original we send, the Mpowerd company will send a Luci EMRG.  That's a total of 4560 solar lights!   The cost for this combined shipment will be $37,970.  That means that our NGO partners will deliver three Originals per family and also give an EMRG for each child!

Rebuilding Alliance, the U.S. Nonprofit sponsoring this effort, has thoroughly and personally researched how to get them in — it is doable!   (And we've successfully sent 2 containers of school supplies and clothing). Preclearance is underway for the 4th pallet, and the State Department and a Senator and Congresswoman are standing by to help.

This is our most ambitious project to date and with your help, we can get it done!  Click the Start your Campaign button on Rebuilding Alliance's page, get your friends involved, donate generously and spread the word today!
