Launch Your Own Campaign

We launched this idea in January of 2017 and were pleasantly surprised to see the enthusiastic response.  We had anticipated 10 people to sign up but we got 29!! Since then we have been hosting monthly luncheons in partnership with different restaurants across the Bay Area. So far we have partnered with PF Changs, Zareen, Panda Express, Mirchi, Kettle, The Holy Land, Vons Chicken, and working with many more.

If you are ready to take this idea to your city,  read on to find quick and easy steps on how to make your restaurant campaign a success!


Our supporters asked their friends to donate to our cause in lieu of bringing gifts for their birthdays or even other special events like weddings.

Here's two examples of families who dedicated birthdays to bringing light to orphans:

Several talented in the art of knitting, joined hands in creating beautiful knitwear and raised funds for GiveLight.

Many ladies, expert in Indonesian, Arabic and Italian cuisines have come forth in offering cooking classes to benefit GiveLight. Giving lessons in a skill you have or conducting a worskshop could be a successful fundraising project.

Many small businesses have supported Givelight by sponsoring events or donating a certain percentage of proceeds to GiveLight. 

Major corporations support GiveLight through their employee matching program. Folks working in these companies have spread word about GiveLight among fellow colleagues. Their donations were matched a 100%.

There are schools that run regular charity drives to benefit our orphans. You can have your school participate in such a drive too.

Many have personally shared our website with family and friends simply by emailing or creating awareness on facebook. This has resulted in donations from $50 to $1000.

A High School in Fremont, California hosted a movie night for GiveLight to raise awareness about one of our campaigns.  

A troop from Santa Clara decided to donate 50% of proceeds from their sales to GiveLight. We received $300 from this effort.
