Ninety days after Hurricane Maria, 40% of Puerto Rico is still without power. Meanwhile, thousands of offices and households across our country leave their lights on over the holidays, even when they’re not in use.
So this holiday, DigitasLBi is shutting off the lights in all six of our main U.S. offices. With the money we save, we’re making a donation to Light Up Puerto Rico, helping to restore power across the island.
We invite you to join us by shutting off your lights when they aren’t in use this holiday and making a donation.DONATE
