1.3 Billion people worldwide have no access to electricity
Without electricity, children cannot study after dark, parents cannot work once the sun sets, and clinics cannot offer life-saving medical help. Access to modern energy is the key to better healthcare, education, and financial independence for the 1 in 5 people worldwide who do not currently have access to energy.
Help Power the World
Linkin Park and Music for Relief have pledged to support UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon’s Sustainable Energy for All Initiative through Power the World. We are raising awareness about the impact of energy poverty, while we raise funds for innovative solutions via three sustainable energy projects in North America, Africa, and South America.
We are also working to encourage people in the developed world to improve methods of generating the power we need and be more efficient in how we consume it.
Play for Light in South America
Families in resource poor communities live without access to electricity and use harmful kerosene or candles to light their homes. These alternatives kill 1.6 million people per year and cost families up to 30% of their incomes.
The Solution: The SOCCKET is both an eco-friendly generator and a soccer ball. It captures the natural energy of game play and stores it for later. Thirty minutes of play provides families with three hours of LED light to read, study, or illuminate the home. This innovative tool improves the lives of children by providing a sustainable, portable, and fun source of energy. It facilitates learning and promotes healthy mental and physical development.
Every $50 donation will provide one SOCCKET kit including: 1 SOCCKET, 1 lamp, and 1 lamp stand. Each kit can improve the quality of life for a family of 5.
