Buy a Light and Make the Connection to a Family in Need

Schoolgirl in Jinotega, Nicaragua June 2004
When you buy a lamp through Bright New Ideas, we will acknowledge your transaction and sign you up to be connected with a family in need.  You will be given login information which you can use to track the lamps you buy and their impact on your family.  More information about this can be found in the tracking page.

Making Your Goodwill Investment Count

Due to our grassroots nature and high-efficiency emphasis, almost all of your money goes toward the solar lamp program. A graph is shown demonstrating the breakdown of every dollar donated toward a solar lamp.

All Donations Are Tax-Deductible.
