IKEA’s Solar-Powered Lamp Sheds Light on Kids Lacking Electricity

We love shedding light on affordable, eco-friendly decor that the entire family may enjoy… but IKEA’s SUNNAN LED Work Lamp  takes our enthusiasm a step further with its altruistic nature. For every SUNNAN lamp  sold in IKEA stores worldwide, another SUNNAN will be donated to UNICEF  to give to children living in remote areas and refugee camps who lack electricity. Requiring no electrical connections, the solar powered lamp  offers four hours of continuous light after its solar panel is charged by the sunlight for 8 hours. The first lamp donations will be sent to Pakistan, where thousands remain homeless after the major earthquake in October 2008.
