Last year over 1.7 million people helped #LightTheWorld, including many from North Star International. Again this year as we celebrate the life of Jesus Christ, we honor Him and share His light through daily acts of service. From December 1 through December 25, we are invited to serve “25 ways in 25 days.”

Every day, North Star will post simple ideas for serving others along. We invite you, your friends, and family to consider how you can #LightTheWorld. If you need ideas on how to serve in your area, consider visiting JustServe.org, a Church-sponsored directory that matches volunteers with local organizations that need help. Keep in mind, service can be one-to-one, as well. In order to help spread the Christmas message of Jesus Christ, be sure to use hashtag #LightTheWorld as you post pictures or thoughts during the holiday season. 

Examples of this include:

  • Put down the electronics and spend some quality time with family or a friend. 
  • Donate a toy to a children’s hospital, or make a contribution to a children’s charity. 
  • Reach out to apologize to someone you may have hurt or offended. 
  • Give blood at your local blood bank.
  • Sponsor a refugee. Visit IWasAStranger.lds.org to get involved. 
  • Download the Church’s #LightTheWorld calendar for daily inspiration. https://www.mormon.org/christmas/25-ways-25-days-calendar

So how will you #LightTheWorld?
