Would you like to bring solar-powered lights to a place of worship or school nearby? We ask your help, as a volunteer, to staff a table at a mosque, church, synagogue, temple, school or university. If you are in the SF Bay Area, we'll join you (or come join us). If you are further away let's talk by phone to develop a plan and we'll send you what you need to host a table at your place of worship.
With volunteer help, we're selling solar-powered Luci Lights and collecting donations to Brighten the Future of Gaza's Children. Due to recurring power outages, children in Gaza have only a few hours of electricity each day. Rebuilding Alliance is working with Non-Governmental Organizations in Gaza to send solar-powered Luci Lights to children and famiiies in need.
Rebuilding Alliance is looking for volunteers who will help us staff tables in various locations throughout the week and weekend. We usually go to mosques every Friday to set-up our table during Jumaa prayer. We have lots of success - the project really touches hearts and makes a difference, so we hope to expand, with your help, to offer this opportunity far and wide, to all who care about children and peace.
The ideal volunteer* would be gregarious, polite, dependable, and passionate about children, the environment and about ending the blockade of Gaza. Please reply by email to Tamsin with a cover letter telling us about yourself and describing how you would like to bring this project forward in your community, or just ask when you can next join us at one of the tabling times already scheduled.
If you would like to invite your friends to join us, please do. We've found it quite wonderful and effective when groups of 4-6 volunteer.
This is a good opportunity to get to know people of other faiths, as you need not be a member at the place of worship we visit. Please note, you may be asked to dress according to a dress code, depending on where you will be staffing a table.
