Beacon of Light Candlelight Vigil

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that” The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In support of the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Asia, and in commemoration of the birthday of social justice hero, Martin Luther King, Jr., Oxfam America invites you to participate in the Beacon of Light Candlelight Vigil.

The vigils are part of the National Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. During the week of King’s birthday, Jan. 17 through Jan. 23, Oxfam asks friends like you to help our neighbors in Asia. You can be a beacon of light in these difficult times.

By selling candles, we’ll raise money for the Tsunami Response and Global Emergencies Fund. By lighting the candles, we’ll stand together as one global community united in the aftermath.

Oxfam America invites you to organize a Beacon of Light Candlelight Vigil in your community. Visit Oxfam’s special vigil site at www.oxfamamerica.org/vigil to read more about how to organize your own vigil and download flyers, candle tags, and more.
