Light Gives Heat was started in 2007 and is based in Grand Junction, CO. Since that time, it has generated enough revenue to pay sustainable incomes to more than 100 women in
Uganda so they can send their children to school and provide for their families. Light Gives Heat has won accolades throughout the U.S. and in 2010 Dave and Morgan were chosen as “People Who Make a Difference” by Oprah Winfrey and were invited to be on the Oprah
