SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The popular #LightTheWorld campaign is expanding this year to 10 new locations, according to a statement from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The campaign places “Giving Machines”at various locations. These machines accept money that is then used to help support local charities such as EyeCare4Kids, the Utah Food Bank, Neighborhood House and Utah Refugee Connection.
“This year, users can purchase multiple items, if they wish, for people in need with one swipe of a credit card,” according to the Church’s statement. “Items range in price from $2 to $320 and include food, clothing, medicine, hygiene supplies, sporting equipment, and livestock. The items will be supplied through partner charities such as UNICEF, Church World Service, WaterAid, Water For People, and International Medical Corps.”
