For the second year, Liter of Light will be walking down Madison Avenue in New York City on June 1, 2014 to celebrate Philippine Independence Day and to raise funds for the victims of Haiyan.
With the widespread destruction of thousands of homes during the wake of Typhoon Haiyan in the country, Liter of Light has dedicated most of its efforts in 2014 to assist the victims of typhoon. We have distributed 1,600 solar-powered night lights to four evacuation centers and three communities in Tacloban, Bohol and Cebu, benefitting 1,746 families and 6,984 individuals. We aim to continue this by installing at least 5,000 more by the end of the year. Due to the scope of the disaster, the lights are being given for free to those who need them, but we need continuous support for this to happen.
On June 1, 2014, from 9:00am – 3:00pm at Madison Avenue in New York city, Liter of Light will be one with the Filipino community, celebrating Philippine Independence Day with the annual Philippine Independence Day parade. Through this march, we aim to raise funds that will help us provide more solar-powered lights to Filipinos in need.
Join us in helping Filipinos get back on their feet! Sign up to join the event here. By walking with us, you can change the lives of countless Filipinos who have no light in their homes, streets and communities.
You may also donate to us here, so that we can continue spreading the light.
Liter of Light is now present in nearly 25 countries, with the Philippines leading the charge to build this green, grassroots solar lighting movement.
