How to Donate to Light The World Giving Machines Online

The Giving Machines, a charitable take on traditional vending machines, have become a celebrated Christmas tradition for Latter-day Saints around the world. However, many wonder how they can participate if they don’t have a Giving Machine close by. This year, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has worked with their charitable partners to add their most popular donation items online.

 

All you have to do is visit the Giving Machine section of the Light the World website. Scroll down the page to see the full list of “Global Charity Partners” and “Local Charity Partners.” You’ll be able to click on whatever organization you’d like to donate to. Many of the global charity partners have created special Light the World items you can purchase. For example, you can donate:

  • a goat from CARE, an international humanitarian organization fighting global poverty and hunger
  • polio vaccines for 100 kids from UNICEF, dedicated to helping children around the world
  • a hospital well from WaterAid, fighting to make clean water and good hygiene available to all
  • one acre of sweet potatoes from CWS Global, a faith-based organization helping fight hunger and poverty

Over 6 million dollars was raised during the 2019 Christmas season. In 2021, there are 10 machines located in Utah, California, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, Missouri, Tennesse, and Hawaii. One of the most exciting locations is in the heart of Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Click here to learn more about the Giving Machines and donate online.
