In a number of countries people have started to put candles outside or leave lights on as symbol of support and gratitude for all the people in front lines out there. Let us together take these lights online.
#OurLightForYou makes a statement to say THANK YOU to all people working day and night treating patients in hospital, serving our supermarkets, protecting people in the streets, and delivering food and supplies from door to door. Beyond only a statement, #OurLightForYou supports these groups in cooperation with Direct Relief to raise funds to provide urgently needed supplies such as masks and personal protective equipment. Join us on this most important journey of our time by putting a virtual light and donate to #OurLightForYou. All donations will be directly routed to Direct Relief as benefiting charity.
