Light for Cause

The Lightbulb Moment

It all started nearly a year ago, when I came across Richard Branson's book Light for Cause logo"Screw Business as Usual", which talks about using business as a force for good. This is also around the time that I came up with the idea to market and sell a new product, The Original Groovy Light™.


I thought of merging the two ideas and that's when Light for Cause was born. My objective is to raise money for The Virgin Unite Foundation through Light for Cause. 

Some of the charities that are near and dear to my heart are:

  • RE*Generation - Helping the homeless youth
  • Give A Drop - Helps provide clean drinking water globally
  • Gaia Rocks - Celebrating the preservation of Mother Earth and the ecosystem

 

Why Give Now?

Necker Island

I entered a contest last year for a chance to meet Richard Branson. It was last minute and because I did not have enough tweets and Facebook likes, I did not win. But it was a great kick start to my Light for Cause vision and in an amazing turn of events, a year later to the exact date, I was invited to Richard Branson's private Island, with 12 other entrepreneurs. 

The kicker is that I need to donate $40,000 to Richard's, Virgin Unite Foundation to join the week long networking and business session.

This is why I need your help right now!

I want to show my groovy balls off to Richard Branson in hopes that he will endorse my product and my Light for Cause initiative. My short-term goal is to raise the $40,000 over the next few weeks, but I don't want to stop there. My long-term goal is to keep raising money through Light for Cause because I truly believe businesses should use their products as leverage to generate money and make a difference.  

So, for every Groovy Light sold online, I will donate $5 to the Virgin Unite Foundation. The really cool thing about The Virgin Unite Foundation is there is no overhead, all operationg cost are covered by Richard Branson and the Virgin Group, so 100% of the money raised goes straight to the charities the Foundation supports. 

 

What's The Original Groovy Light?
