Lightswitch, The Honnold Foundation and Friends Raise $37,400 for SolarAid, Bringing Life-Saving Solar Light to Africa
8/28/2014
In December 2013, staff and customers of Lightswitch raised $18,743 to provide clean safe solar lights in Africa. The Honnold Foundation matched every dollar, meaning Lightswitch helped raise a total of $37,486. This generous donation to SolarAid has helped us get 8,000 safe, life-enhancing solar lights to families in Zambia. These lights will benefit more than 56,000 people, resulting safer, more efficient homes, $2.9 million total in savings for families and an estimated 7,000 ton-reduction in CO2 emissions. Through our social enterprise, SunnyMoney, we have been reaching out to schools and their communities to get these clean safe lights to families living without electricity.

Zambian School Campaigns - 2013/14 Highlights:
• Working with head teachers to build trust in this new technology, our SunnyMoney teams have supported 433 new schools to participate in our school campaigns, whilst providing on—going support to hundreds more schools that participated in previous campaigns.
• Through schools, almost 28,000 lights have been distributed to families across Zambia, predominantly in the Copperbelt and Southern Provinces.
• 84% of SunnyMoney customers have no electricity

Thank you to the generous support of our clients, partners, friends and staff who contributed more than $18,000, as well as to The Honnold Foundation, which matched the campaign contributions. We look forward to continuing our partnership with SolarAid this year. Stay tuned for news about on our next exciting collaboration.


About Lightswitch
Twenty years ago, we formed Lightswitch with one goal . . .To create unforgettable experiences through lighting, media and visual design.

For the past two decades we have worked hard to deliver on that commitment, regardless of a project’s scale or size. It’s a pursuit that inspires us to create award-winning entertainment, events and environments for a diverse network of clients that span from Broadway to Macau and everywhere in between.

As a core principle, it guides our team of dedicated designers who serve our clients from six full-service offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. It’s also a challenge that drives us to continually refine our craft and affirm our belief that successful visual design is a balance of artistry, practicality and technological mastery.

As the end result of our passion and dedication is visual, not verbal, we invite you to explore our site and experience it for yourself. For more information, go to www.lightswitch.net.
