Light the World with a CARE Package

Join Latter-day Saint Charities and CARE by sending CARE Packages to help those in need around the world and in the US.

Support CARE by finding a Giving Machine near you, or donate a CARE Package below.


What are Giving Machines?
Giving Machines are a part of the Light the World initiative and are sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Latter-day Saint Charities. Through these machines, the public experiences the joy of giving and serving others in a unique, fun, and memorable way. Despite being virtual in 2020 due to COVID-19, CARE’s online giving items raised over $400,000 from Giving Machine donors in 49 states plus Puerto Rico.

In 2021, you can find CARE and donate a CARE Package at the following Giving Machine locations: Bridgestone Center in Nashville, Pearlridge Center in Honolulu, City Creek Center in Salt Lake City, Writer’s Square in Denver, and Rockefeller Plaza in New York.


What does CARE do?

How does donating a CARE Package help?

Together with Latter-day Saint Charities, we are providing urgently needed help while also supporting projects that provide longer-term solutions to poverty. Through the Light The World campaign, CARE Package donations will help meet immediate needs of struggling families while also empowering communities with tools and resources to help them for the long-term.


When you send a life-changing CARE Package, you are sending hope to people who need it today. Your CARE Package will help us continue to lift children, women, and families out of poverty around the world.
