Gearing up for back to school can be a drag, unless your kids have the newest and coolest essentials for starting off the school year right. This year, why not buy your little one an accessory perfect for kicking off the school year?
Forgo tangled wires, and pick a more decorative option with IKEA’s SUNNAN lamp. The SUNNAN work lamp combines low-energy LED technology with solar panels. By charging the panel for 9-12 hours in the sun, the lamp produces four hours of light. And for every sale of a SUNNAN lamp, another child will receive one in Pakistan or India.
Since the IKEA SUNNAN campaign began in June 2009, over 600,000 SUNNAN lamps have been sold and matched for donations to either UNICEF or Save the Children.
With this donation, children no longer have to struggle to read, write or draw, and instead have the opportunity to continue their studies after sunset.
IKEA has made their SUNNAN lamps especially sturdy for the donation, designed to resist the wear and tear of difficult living situations, including a battery capable of withstanding high temperatures. The lamps are available in five colors at IKEA stores around the world and retail for $19.99.
IKEA strives to be ‘The Life Improvement Store,’ and since its 1943 founding in Sweden, has offered home furnishings of good design and function, at low prices so the majority of people can afford them.
