Bring Light to Haiti Bright Hope's "Like for Light" Facebook Campaign Now through May 31st

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Introducing Bright Hope's "Like for Light" campaign.  For every new Facebook Fan Page "Like" they receive through May 31st, a hand-powered flashlight will be donated to a Haitian living in darkness. We passed the 1,000 new Likes mark last week and hope to reach 5,000 by May 31st.

In the slums and rural villages of Haiti, light and electricity are inconsistent at best, non-existent in most cases. For many living there, light comes solely from the sun, fire and dangerous gas lamps. Bright Hope wants to change that – and is doing so through social media and your advocacy.  Pastor Stanley, a Haitian Pastor partnering with Bright Hope, says, "I am very happy for this special gift, because my church is in the countryside. Sometimes people don't have light. They don't have money to buy gas to put in their lamp. When people find this flashlight, they will be very happy. It is a blessing for the people."

You can make life brighter for many lives in Haiti – with one click of a button. "Like" Bright Hope's Facebook Fan Page at Facebook.com/BrightHopeIntl to bring Hope and light to thousands. It is simple, free, and will impact thousands of lives of those living in extreme poverty.
