PUTNAM COUNTY — Ottawa resident Lindsay Verhoff works closely with
her friend Melissa Syler, Canton, to help promote the non-profit “Be The
Light Campaign. Syler is the founder of the non-profit program that
emphasizes the profound impact small acts that spread light have on
individuals and communities.
Holding the elevator for a stranger.
Buying a coffee for the next person in line. Cheering up a friend who is
down. Giving a warm smile while working the drive-thru window. Doing a
podcast that makes people laugh during their long commute. These are
just some of the little ways people who “Be the Light” make our country a
brighter place. LEDVANCE, the lighting leader formerly known as OSRAM
SYLVANIA, is working with the Be the Light Campaign to issue a call to
action to find and recognize people who give off positive energy and
joy, and reward them for spreading light.
Starting now through
Feb. 10 at www.sylvania.com/BeTheLight, you can nominate anyone who
exemplifies what it means to “Be the Light”. Fifty people who best
embody the “Be the Light” concept will receive a Thank You Gift that
includes a $50 Amazon Gift Card and SYLVANIA lighting products. If your
nominee is selected, you will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and
lighting products too. Starting on National Random Acts of Kindness Day
(Feb. 17), these selected stories of light-hearted people will be shared
online with the hope they will ignite a movement toward positivity and
help inspire others to Be the Light.
