The #LightTheWorld initiative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invites people all over the world to share their light through 25 days of kindness. One act of kindness might be donating to a charity through a vending machine called a Giving Machine.

The Giving Machines offer a unique way to serve and care for others across the globe, giving donors an opportunity to “select” items such as groceries, fresh water, child vaccines, beds, hygiene kits, farming equipment, medical care, job training, educational supplies, beehives and livestock as charitable donations, the Church News reported. Nearly 125 local and global nonprofits are joining the Church in caring for and serving millions of people in need.

This year, in addition to Giving Machine sites around the United States and internationally, there will be two Giving Machines traveling around Arizona and the Southeast U.S.

Use this handy tracker to know when and where the closest machine is to you.
