Month of Giving. You Shop, We Give.

  “It’s not how much we give, but how much we put into giving.” — Mother Teresa
  “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill

Some of the world’s most influential leaders understood the importance of giving back, while others have made it their life’s work. As a company we believe that giving back is a required tenet of a fruitful society and necessary to make our world a better place. For the entire month of August, the 1STOPlighting family will be doing our part to support those in need by launching our “Month of Giving” campaign. Through our valued partnership we are committed to donating $10 on every order to a charity of your choice. We have partnered with eight exceptional foundations that have furthered research, community health, global outreach and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impacts in their respective areas.

How Does it Work?

After you have completed your order, don’t leave just quite yet. On the order confirmation page, you will see a list of charities to choose from (see right for example). Please select one that is near and dear to your heart and we will donate $5 of your order to that charity!
