Last year, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints illuminated the Christmas season with Giving Machines in various locations worldwide. These unique vending machines allow visitors to contribute directly to global and local charities, spreading love and kindness. Approximately 600,000 visitors engaged with these machines across 61 locations.

In 2024, the Giving Machines are expanding their reach even further. This year they will be available in 108 locations, including two in the Europe North Area: the United Kingdom and Finland. A trio of traveling machines will journey through three major cities in England –London, Manchester and Birmingham, spending two weeks in each of these vibrant cities.

Helsinki, Finland will host two machines at a single location for six weeks.

These Giving Machines provide a unique opportunity for individuals to make a difference by donating to causes such as clean water, livestock, meals, and more. The impact of these heartfelt contributions directly benefits those in need, both globally and locally. It will be exciting to spread light and love during the festive season this way!

More information will be shared later in the year when details are confirmed. Members and friends can be involved by donating their time as volunteers or purchasing products.
