Where are the 2022 Giving Machines?

Giving Machines will be open through early January in the U.S., and late December around the world

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.
