Community is a key foundation of Lighthouse for Life. Not only do we rely on our community partnerships, but we want to do all we can to help our communities grow in their understanding of Human Trafficking and the role they can have against it.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of both fund-raising and awareness events that we would love for you to join. Many of our events are put on by Lighthouse for Life, however, at times we partner with others as well. If you have an event you’d like us to be a guest, please contact us!
Location: Wherever you are - you can donate by check or on line
Time: all day
What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is only the year's biggest day of giving outside Dec 31! It's designed to kick-start the charitable end-of-year giving season, especially within the local community. This 24-hour giving event celebrates donors, organizations, and the do-good impact we have together.
When is Giving Tuesday?
Tuesday December 3, 2019
Why participate in Giving Tuesday?
Lighthouse for Life will be participating in Giving Tuesday for the third consecutive year. Our goal this year is $40,000. That’s not just a goal, that is a need. We have been so active all across SC these past 5 years and have celebrated many “wins.” There is still so much more to do and we can only do it with your help.
How do I participate in Giving Tuesday?
1. Donate. There are three easy options to give – A) write a check, B)through the lighthouesforlife.org webpage
OR YOU CAN DOUBLE YOUR DOLLARS by 3) donating through the Lighthouse for Life Facebook page starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday December 3rd. Every dollar given through our Facebook page will be doubled up to $100,000 or until Facebook runs out of money.
2. Donate as close to 8:00 a.m. as possible Facebook has set aside millions of dollars to match gifts but its first come, first serve. The closer you donate to 8:00 a.m. via our Facebook page the better chance you have for your impact to double.
3. Spread the word – please consider asking others to participate in this seasonal day of generosity to welcome the holiday season and to help Lighthouse for Life continue to fight human trafficking in SC.
4. Pray that God will be pleased with our efforts and that the hearts of others will be moved to participate.

This event is for serious runners all the way to families with little kids in wagons and furry friends on a leash. The more people the better!!! Will you make plans NOW to join us THEN!
You'll have the time because our race in on LEAP DAY!! You can dedicate an hour of an entire extra 24 to having fun while supporting an amazing cause right?!
The best part of the race is the GLOW FACTOR. We will all be glowing as we run out as lights into the dark and while it looks super cool and kids really dig it......the big true reason is to symbolize taking the light of hope into the dark and painful world of modern day slavery.
