What an incredible team of supporters you are! Thanks to your help and generosity last Thursday and Friday during Do More 24, we raised more than $40,000 in 48 hours to fund our expansion into Hopkins public housing!
Your enthusiasm, eagerness, and generosity – in the midst of all the technical glitches – encouraged and touched us. Thank you for showing your belief in Little Lights through both your financial support and asking so many of your friends and family to lend a hand!
Because of your support, we will be able to implement Little Lights programming at Hopkins, bringing hope, help, and dignity to the kids and teens there through the power of personal relationships. We are excited to get to know so many new kids, parents, and families!
Thank you for your consistent friendship to Little Lights and for wholeheartedly partnering with us in service for our city. We could not do this without you.

In just three days, on June 6th, Little Lights will be participating in Do More 24, a city-wide day of giving organized by the United Way. To make this day a success, your help and support is crucial.
Throughout the day, we’ll be competing against other nonprofits in the DC region to reach the highest number of donors and donations and win up to $24,000 in prize money.
During last year’s day of giving, Little Lights astonished everyone by winning first place for rallying the “most donors in the DC region.” In one day we brought in over $80,000: more than $38,000 from donors and the rest in awards. Read coverage by the Washington Post here.
This year, our goal, in addition to winning again with the most donors, is to raise $50,000 to support our upcoming expansion into Hopkins – with your help we know we have a fighting chance!
Will you help Little Lights on June 6th by donating at least $12 online and inviting 12 or more of your friends to do the same?
The entryway into our new space at Hopkins
This summer we will officially open up Little Lights programs at Hopkins public housing complex, right across the street from where we already work at Potomac Gardens. Summer Lights camp at Hopkins starts in July! We are thrilled and thankful for this opportunity to get to know and serve the 150+ kids and teens at Hopkins.
But this is also the largest expansion in Little Lights’ history, which means a significant increase in our expenses. And that is why we would so appreciate your support on June 6th – to provide us with a much-needed boost as we move forward with the expansion!
Thanks to all of you for caring about our city and the work we are doing at Little Lights – we are so very thankful for you.
