What is Light the World?
The popular #LightTheWorld campaign asks people to take the 25 days leading up to Christmas and turn it into a season of service, lifting and helping others in small and simple ways. As part of this campaign, Giving Machines – essentially large, red vending machines – have been placed in five locations throughout the world to provide a way for people to give an instant act of service.
Light the World vending machines look like typical snack machines, but they offer a different kind of fare: socks, blankets, shelter nights, and more. These vending machines are different — you don't buy the items for yourself. Instead, each “purchase” is actually a direct gift to a family in your community, giving them the things they need most.
Watch these incredible, and fun, machines in action below:
When and Where is Light the World?
Light the World machines will be active the full month of December and are stationed in Gilbert's stunning Water Tower Plaza located at 45 W Page Ave, Gilbert, AZ 85233. View the exact location below:
