"Luke's Lights" was born of a wish by Luke Voss-Kernan’s friends and family to spread his light far and wide. By buying solar lights for communities in the third world who live off the electrical grid.
Edith Wharton said "there are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." Few of us can imagine a person who did both. Shine from within and refract every one else's best. Luke did. In fact, we believe he still does. There is not a more perfect tribute than to bring Luke's light into pitch-black communities, or dark, smoky, dung huts currently lit by kerosene.
Our fundraiser on December 21 will be a celebration of Luke's shimmer and his lightness of being. All proceeds will go towards a project of Unite-to-Light to bring lights to communities around the globe that otherwise live in darkness.
• For your $20 ticket fee, two lights get sent to someone who cannot yet imagine how his/her life will change.
• We will also be selling the actual LED lights there for $20 each. You get to keep one; and another one gets sent to someone in need.
