For this year's fundraiser the enLIGHTen Project was created - an auction selling lights to pay for solar panels, batteries, solar lanterns, and a water filtration system for the orphanage in Nepal.

According to the Kids of Kathmandu, "The electricity will allow the kids to have lighting, clean water, refrigeration, as well as other basic, fundamental sanitary conveniences. The improvement will be profound, and in the long run, measurable, as we see their health and school attendance improve."
