Lights For Good is a program started by Mark Bent that provides solar powered BogoLights to parts of the world that would otherwise be stuck in the dark. By donations through non-profit organizations, Lights For Good and BOGO (buy one, get one) sends the flashlights to African communities to help their citizens protect themselves and stay active after the sun sets.

According to Sun Night Solar, two billion people in the developing world rely on either kerosene lamps, candles, or single-use battery powered flashlights when they stay active at night. These activities include gathering firewood and, more importantly, helping children study at night because most of their daylight hours are spent tending crops. By providing them with a renewable energy source, Sun Night Solar and the NPOs they are affiliated with are helping these communities save money and are benefiting their overall quality of life.

If you want to help contribute to this cause, buy a BoGo light for yourself, and another light (included in the cost) will be shipped to someone in the world who needs it more than we do.
