LDS Church Vending Machines Raise $.5 Million for Charity

Here's a little something to inspire you to continue lighting the world all the way into 2018.

The LDS Church announced Friday that its Light the World initiative has raised nearly half a million dollars this month through charity vending machines temporarily installed on Temple Square.

All of the money raised will go to five charities represented in the machines at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

"As of today the machines have logged 23,899 transactions totaling $469,085 in donations," said Daniel Woodruff, a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
