Newest batch of celebrity Light if Forward challenge
The Light it Forward movement welcomes another batch of top personalities as its latest solar challengers.

The newest batch of celebrity Light it Forward challengers to build solar lamps for a cause has been revealed.

The Light it Forward Challenge spearheaded by the Liter of Light Foundation has been circulating in social media and has prompted many celebrities to take action for 20 million Filipinos still living in the dark.

The challenge is part of the Liter of Light’s advocacy to end energy poverty, one solar light bottle at a time.

Liter of Light’s initiative calls on advocates to build solar lamps for needy and remote villages in the country. The continuous movement also promotes awareness for an estimated 20 million Filipinos still living in the darkness.

This challenge entails an individual to film his/her assembly of solar light by hand. The effort should take only about 20-30 minutes to build. Upon completion, you must issue the challenge to another person to build more solar lamps for donation to remote villages in the Philippines still without access to modern electricity.

Filipino celebrities helped bring the movement to a larger audience by taking part in the challenge themselves and posting the videos on social media. Anyone can now become a solar champion for the poor through the Light it Forward challenge.

The campaign has eight new celebrity solar challengers:

  • ESPN5 Reporter Fraulein “Lyn” Olavario
  • Kapuso Actress Kylie Padilla
  • Kapuso Actress Carla Abellana
  • Actress Ana Feleo
  • Actress Eula Valdes and son Miguel Valdes
  • Celebrity couple Sunshine Cruz and Macky Mathay
  • Journalist Ysabel Vitangcol
  • TV host Patty Tumulak

The new solar challengers comprise the third batch of Filipino celebrities who have joined the solar lighting advocacy. You can find previous solar challengers here and here.

Light it Forward’s solar lamps make a big difference in Filipino households without lighting. Aside from being made out of recycled materials, a lamp unit can keep a home well lit for twelve hours a day, in the span of five years. It also reduces carbon emissions by at least 1,000 kg.

The eco-friendly and sustainable lighting movement is in collaboration with Liter of Light Foundation and Goodnewspilipinas.com, a Filipino pride advocacy group.
