Did you know that 1 in 6 people in the world―about 1.1 billion people―live without electricity?
Panasonic wanted to improve this situation, so it started its “100 Thousand Solar Lanterns Project” to bring light to people living in areas without electricity.
So far, the project has donated more than 100,000 solar lanterns. “AKARI Action Together” was launched as an additional project to further expand the scope of donations.
One way of participating in AKARI Action Together is by donating money. But another easy way is to collect five or more books, CDs, or games that you no longer need and have them picked up by making a single phone call.
