#LightTheWorld in Orem, Utah

We finally got to visit the “Giving Machine” during a lunch break yesterday! What may look like an ordinary vending machine is actually designed to give so much more than just a snack or soda. The “Giving Machine” is part of the #LightTheWorld campaign put on by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to encourage people to give during the holiday season. Users swipe their card like normal, but instead of dispensing snacks, the machine makes a charitable donation of your choice from a variety of options. In the 2018 holiday season, the machines raised more than $2.3 Million for local and global charities. Currently there are only ten of these machines operating in the world, but people can see the progress of the campaign on the Light the World website.
