Giving Back to Our Community & Planet
We are spreading holiday cheer beyond our clients to those in need throughout our community.
It is such a blast to meet with and design non-profit group homes with the residents themselves. Getting their design ideas and interacting with them is really the heart of the matter. We have so much fun getting to know them. BUT, Light Up Your Holidays has intentions bigger than just the holiday season and our local community.
We are extremely passionate about real world problems, including cleaning our oceans, standing up against human trafficking, and preserving our wildlife.
We work directly with organizations fighting for these causes, including The Ocean Cleanup, Patrick The Tsavo Elephant Guardian, and many more. It would mean a great deal to our company if you could join the greatness by showing your support to these wonderful causes. If you can help, and show a receipt of your donation, you will get a percentage off your holiday decorating. Thank you, from everyone at Light Up Your Holidays.
The Ocean Cleanup
Please take the time to watch this video on The Ocean Cleanup. A project started in hopes to clean our oceans of all plastic waste. We use plastic each and everyday, whether it’s household items like containers, to small children’s toys, carrying on to almost everything you buy from a major store, it’s everywhere. It’s slowly ruining the lives of our friends in the ocean. They don’t know what the material is, and get trapped in it, eat it, or let it ruin their habitat. Making a simple donation can make a world of a difference in the long run. Please read more or check out their site here.
Patrick the Tsavo Guardian
This non-profit is for a great cause. The Tsavo desert is a great need of watering holes for the animals that inhabit it. They are running short, and every year animals die due to lack of hydration and famine. Water isn’t something that just humans need to survive, everything living creature on this planet essentially needs it. Patrick Mwualua, the desert guardian, is doing everything he can to provide water to all the animals across the desert. This includes elephants, buffalo, giraffes, and much much more. Each journey he makes carries 12,000 liters of water. For every $250 Patrick gets, he’s able to fill another tank up with water and provide these wonderful creatures with the things they need to survive. Please read more about this wonderful cause today.
For every donation made, we here at Light Up Your Holidays plan to match with the same amount. You will also receive a discount on your services for helping these great causes change the world we live in today.
Lighting It Forward
For several Christmas seasons, LUYH has been partnering with many generous clients to bring the magic of Christmas to local not-for-profit organizations. Through client contributions and our matching funds, the boys and girls of Boys Hope Girls Hope and the adult residents of Avenues to Independence realized their dreams of experiencing Christmas in lights!
Together, we not only brightened up their homes and neighborhoods, but also their hearts and souls. Light Up Your Holiday’s mission is to continue spreading holiday cheer throughout communities. With your help, and the selfless energies of our crew, we will be decorating the properties of worthy organizations of my client’s choosing and affiliation.
Help us spread the spirit of the holidays to those in need.
