Kids Helping Kids

The students of Eisenhower Elementary in Cupertino, CA are working hard to donate lights to students in India. They are selling books, bringing in change, and asking neighbors for support ... all to reach their goal of 100 solar lights!

The student council at Eisenhower recently learned about One Million Lights and invited Anna Sidana, founder and CEO, to speak at their assembly. The leaders of the student council introduced Anna by noting that kids in other parts of the world need safe, clean light, something that we take for granted, to study at night and do well in school. All 750 of the students heard the story about how Anna started OML and were particularly interested in hearing stories of kids in the field that now have lights.

They were so excited that they’ve decided that as a school, they can raise enough funds to donate 100 lights. These lights will go to kids living in Southern India in a village on the Tamil Nadu-Karnataka border.

Over the next 6 weeks, until the end of Dec, students are working in their classrooms on fundraising and awareness events.

One light, for as little as $25, changes a life forever. Help the Eisenhower students out by donating a light.
