Alfredo Moser is famous, but you would never know it.
The Brazilian mechanic devised a method to give his home electricity during the day – using plastic bottles filled with water and bleach. Over the last two years, the method has taken off in over 15 different countries, where electricity is expensive, especially so for those below the poverty line. As Moser’s Lamps continue to provide free light to an estimated one million homes next year, allowing them to light their homes to work, and in some cases, grow food, he has expected nothing in return. Instead, he has given the world a gift.
Mr. Moser states in the article (which also contains an amazing video of how the lamps work):“It’s a divine light. God gave the sun to everyone, and light is for everyone. Whoever wants it saves money. You can’t get an electric shock from it, and it doesn’t cost a penny.”
A wonderfully positive story to kick off your Monday!
