In late December 2018, a tsunami, caused by the eruption of Anak Krakatau, struck the coast of Indonesia. Hundreds of families were affected and displaced. Over the holidays, our team worked to put together 25 packages of 2,000 total lights in partnership with Amazon Disaster Relief & Team Rubicon UK for the displaced families. Amazon matched our donation of lights to the region, and most importantly, they were able to help us logistically bypass all humanitarian relief embargoes and ship directly into Indonesia. Through this, our lights were able to reach those in need by January 2nd through two local organizations with whom Team Rubicon UK had partnered with.
This partnership was a true show of support and proves what a huge difference companies can make when they come together.
