    It's a wonderful idea! Really channels the spirit of Diwali; rather than the dhoom dhamaka aspect of it. ^^

This Diwali come and celebrate "Green Diwali" with Milaap!

Diwali is the festival of lights which lays emphasis on sharing and giving. Let’s do our 
bit towards spreading joy by bringing solar lighting to the poor households, instead of spending mindlessly on loud, noisy crackers that pollute the air and mess up the streets!
 
The money that you save on your crackers can help literally light up households - by bringing solar lights to homes that are off the power grid in West Bengal, India.
 

So this Diwali when you celebrate with Milaap, you are contributing towards the society in two ways; one in providing light to the homes of the underprivileged and two, in reducing air pollution and noise pollution.

The Solar Lighting project is aimed at providing electricity to 1500 lives in villages in West Bengal, that are off the power grids of this country. They rely on kerosene lamps for lighting after sun-set.
 
Save the money you would want to spend on crackers and contribute for this project and help light-up lives of these poor for life. Take this pledge today and join the mass movement supporting green diwali and joy of giving!
 
About Milaap:
Milaap was founded in 2010 by a team of young and passionate entrepreneurs from premiere institutions in India and Singapore. Milaap is an online platform that enables you to lend to India's working poor so they can get access to education, clean water, energy and more. It’s a loan, not a donation. This means you get your full loan amount back once your borrower repays it. So far, Milaap has raised USD$530,000 for borrowers in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Maharashtra with a 100% repayment rate.
