Send A Light For Disaster Relief - Give Luci

Give Luci - DWC

Send a light to the Downtown Women's Center
  • We have joined forces with the Downtown Women's Center (DWC), and Robert Galinsky's The Bench Play to provide Luci lights to the homeless population they serve in Los Angeles, California.

    For a limited time, your Give Luci purchase of just $10.00, MPOWERD will send a light directly to the DWC ( if purchased through this product listing). We are partnering with both the DWC and The Bench Play during the extended run of the play at the Hudson Guild Theater through December 13, 2018.

    The Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women. DWC envisions a Los Angeles with every woman housed and on a path to personal stability. Its mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, and advocacy. Founded in 1978, DWC was the first permanent supportive housing provider for women in the U.S. 

    Robert Galinsky's The Bench Play, is a one man show set in the 1980's about homelessness. Based on true stories, The Bench, set in urban decay and rubble, explores the emotional heartbreak of five homeless characters and the catastrophic hysteria surrounding AIDS in the late 1980’s and early 1990's. It’s solo theater, where 1 actor plays 5 characters, written in dialogue form. Robert has incorporated Luci lights on set and talks to audiences after the show about Luci lights and his work volunteering at DWC to combat homelessness. The Bench Play has been a vehicle for driving awareness of the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles and the wonderful work of the DWC.

    Lightweight, easy to carry, and shining up to 24 hours on a single charge, Luci is a clean, safe and affordable way to bring light to the homeless in LA, providing safety and security in a way previously not available.

    Please remember, when you choose Give Luci, you do not receive a product. Only choose this option if you would like the selected number of lights to go to the DWC.

    HOW IT WORKS:

    1. Buy a light or lights through our GIVE Luci program.
    2. Your GIVE light goes directly to our non-profit partners. In this case it will be sent directly to the DWC.
    3. The DWC will continue their work on the ground to deliver them to the homeless in Los Angeles. 

    Please note: Give Luci purchases are not tax deductible.
