LFL 2014 Child Referral Request

Help Us Add More Kids To Our Picture!
We Are Looking for


If you know a family that has a child with cancer,
please refer them.

We help kids with cancer by recycling old and broken holiday string lights. How can old holiday string lights help kids with cancer? Holiday string lights contain copper, a valuable commodity. We collect the string lights (and other items that contain copper) and sell them to a recycling company. We then donate the proceeds directly to a family who has a child with cancer. It’s that easy! And it’s good for the environment! Keep valuable commodities out of landfills, and help kids with cancer! It’s a win-win situation!

How can I help?

You can help kids with cancer by donating your old, broken string lights to Lights For Life. Clean out that garage and find what else can be recycled. We’ll take care of the rest.

Where can the lights be donated

Holiday string lights can be donated at participating Ace Hardwares in Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Northern California, Washington, Virginia, Delaware, and SW Florida between November 1st and February 15th.

What if I don’t have holiday string lights... can I still help?

Yes! Of course you can still help! As a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit,
Cash donations and grants are always accepted and greatly appreciated.
You could also help us spread the word by joining the Lights for Life Street Team.
