Light Workers

Perpetual Light Fund

Micro Loans for Budding Businesses

Welcome to the Perpetual Light Fund.  We accept applicants on an ongoing basis, so go ahead and fill out the short Light Fund Application.

This fund will give out an award of $100 every month to a light worker around the world.  Each month a new individual will receive a light award for the purpose of starting or expanding a life-enhancing business. This fund was inspired by the perpetual education fund of the Latter-Day Saint Church.

To keep up to date on new Light Fund Winners, and opportunities for extra awards, sign up below.  You will also receive my short daily newsletters about Light, Life, and Your Higher Potential!

If you'd like to sponsor a light fund winner, contact Christopher through the Support Desk.

Preference may be given to:

1) Individuals from countries where the impact of $100 is greater, according to the microenterprise business model.  Yet I take into account..

2) Individuals who have a business model or plan prepared.  Those who plan to succeed are much more likely to do so.

In your Light Fund Application, include a message about who you are and what your plan is for a business to bring light to the world.  This could be a craft business, a food business, a web business, or anything.  I've also been inspired by Muhammad Yunus, Banker to the Poor, and his micro loan program.

We've had some great donors to the Light Fund also.  If you want to donate, just contact me through the application form above.

The idea behind micro loans and micro grants is that this money will be paid back when the small business is self supporting, but this isn't my primary focus.  I've been blessed, and I want to share with the world.  When the money comes, then the light awards can be given out more frequently.   

Thanks,

Christopher
