Buy one, help give one
A BEACON OF LIGHT IN THE DARK
Around Australia this year, there will be over a million people who can’t afford to turn the lights on. Energy poverty is an increasing problem globally, with many people around the world struggling to meet the cost of energy required for a decent and comfortable life. We think every child deserves to have a sense of safety and home; a spot of cosiness that’s all their own. We often take lighting for granted; it’s just something that exists in the background of our everyday routine. But for a child without access to energy, there are no lights to do homework by, to feel comfort in their own home, or safely provide enough light for the family home to function. Alternatives like kerosene lamps are dangerous and much less reliable.
FLIPPING THE SWITCH ON ELECTRICITY POVERTY
To help make a positive impact in our community, Soffle works in partnership with Solar Buddy, producing solar polar lamps that can be used anywhere to bring a warming glow and a comforting sense of home, no matter where you are. Every time you buy a lamp from Soffle, we’ll donate $5 towards a renewable solar light a child can use to light up their home with brightness and comfort. Solar Buddy works with children all around the world who don’t have access to this much-needed essential.
Now that’s a bright idea.
