"Solar not only brings light, but improves education, safety, and health for those who live without energy access. It is the foundation of a brighter future." LITTLE SUN FOUNDATION
Olafur Eliasson's LITTLE SUN
is more than just a award winning design project. It includes the aspiration to bring light to all children in the world who don't have access to electricity.
This aspiration is the real piece of art and makes LITTLE SUN a great movement of light.
We are all #ConnectedByTheSun
TOGETHER WE CAN
participate in this great movement by bringing LITTLE SUN solar lamps
to all our CAN-projects in Asia
Most of all we will bring them to South America
- specifically to off-grid-children in Ecuador and Colombia.
you can GIVE A SUN
to a child and make its life brighter.
We will go there, personally distribute the solar lamps, document it on film and mail you a picture of a child holding your LITTLE SUN in its hand.
As part of our CAN-Gift-Campaign
you can GIVE-THE-GIFT-OF-GIVING
as a present, and dedicate your conscious action to a friend or a loved one.
Please send us an email to let us know which NAME you want on the THANK-YOU-PICTURE: sun@CAN-Xmas.org
