Living in a big city can often be isolating, but IHUG (Inglewood Helping Us Grow) is helping to bring together residents in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood, California with a program called “Friendship Lamps.”
The program is simple: each participating household receives two lamps, one for each resident. When one of the lamps is tapped or turned on, the other lamp will light up, regardless of the distance between them. This simple gesture serves as a reminder that the residents are connected, even when they’re miles apart.
IHUG began the Friendship Lamp program in 2020, just as the pandemic was starting to take hold of the city. Residents were encouraged to register for the program and were given the lamps free of charge. Since then, IHUG has distributed over 100 lamps and connected over 100 households in Inglewood.
The lamps serve as a powerful symbol of the connection between residents and their community. By seeing the light of the other lamp, people can be reassured that they are not alone in their struggles and that they are connected to those around them.
IHUG is a nonprofit organization that works to foster a sense of community and belonging in Inglewood. Each year, the organization hosts events, provides resources, and works to develop programs that bring neighbors together. The Friendship Lamp program is one of these programs, and it’s been a huge success.
The Friendship Lamp program has been a great way for IHUG to connect residents in Inglewood, and it’s been a wonderful example of how technology can be used for good. The program has been a reminder that, even in difficult times, we are all connected and that we can rely on the support of our neighbors.
