Since we started this blog, every Veterans Day we’ve asked people to look at some highly respected and wonderful organizations that help Veterans as well as active servicemen, women and families. Please don’t be duped by some store or bogus charity. These are all well-established agencies with A or A-plus ratings from American Institute of Philanthropy.
SolarLightingSmart.com is written and managed by SolarFlairLighting.com, and has been since 2011.

We’re not really religious, but we don’t think Pope Francis’ Letter: On Care for Our Common Home is really about religion as much as it’s a very clear statement on climate change, descriptions of impacts to the Earth (and how we’ve been lousy custodians), and when the Pope speaks, boy do people listen. Our onsite blog discusses why we think it’s important AND relevant to us since we sell renewable energy, often with funds from incentive programs.
We think there are other reasons why this Pope is a refreshing change of face, and actually really kind of a cool guy Continue reading
