Campaign results from the 2019 #LightTheWorld global giving campaign were announced at Downtown Summerlin, one of ten locations worldwide and the only location in Las Vegas to host Giving Machines.
The goal of the program was to encourage acts of kindness and promote greater awareness of organizations and populations in need. Giving Machines raised more than $6.2 million worldwide during the 2019 holiday season with more than $823,000 donated at Giving Machines in Downtown Summerlin from Nov. 14, 2019 through Jan. 2, 2020. Of the seven beneficiary organizations to which the public could donate through the machine, five are local nonprofits.
Collectively, they received more than $470,000 from donors at The Giving Machine with an additional donation from Latter-day Saint Charities to cover the cost of credit card processing fees.
