THE STORY:

A word from Alison Thompson from Third Wave Volunteers: Most of us underestimate the importance of light in our lives- In developing countries life is dictated by the sun. When a village has no access to an electrical power grid or generator or when power has been destroyed by a natural disaster such as an earthquake or hurricane, much work can only take place when there is daylight. It is estimated that a quarter of the world’s population—1.6 BILLION people—live without electricity, limiting the hours they have for activities like cleaning, sewing, socializing or studying. On a more personal note, after the Haitian Earthquake in 2010, I witnessed the power of light in a way I hadn't thought of before. We were running a camp for over 65,000 earthquake victims and I noticed a correlation between the absence of light and the number of rape victims I was seeing in our field hospital daily. When the large solar lights were down ( due to theft or damage) rapes went up 80% overnight as women were forced to walk around in the dark and grabbed and raped without any witnesses. I have given out many lights to rape victims all over the world and some write to tell me how much safer they feel now that they can can see what is coming in the dark. They also beg for more lights for their friends, who are also scared. It was in these moments that the importance of light became tattooed into my heart and the journey with The Solar Puff began. The Solar Puff now has its own song written and sung by beautiful humanitarian Ruby Stewart ( Rod's daughter) and Alyssa Bonogura -who have worked with me in Haiti. They are helping to raise money to give out lights around the world in the One Light campaign- please join the movement and help us get more lights to Haiti and Nepal. A huge thank you to The Sisterhood band, Paul Borrud for the Nepal Drone footage, Mallory Brown -Ryan Doyle- Archana Gurung for the Nepal footage, Danielle Dreis and Fredric King who spent long hours volunteering on the editing and producing of this video feature. Thank you to Emily Hime- at Hime for Help Haiti orphanage. Please support her. Thank you to Third Wave Volunteers and Jen Q Adams and LAHAF. A big thank you to Alice the original inventor of the Solar Puff https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKDJ9RkwPfw
