Giving Machines

Thursday, November 16, 2023 – Monday, January 1, 2024

Picture this: Vending machines that don't dispense snacks or drinks, but instead, they offer something even more nourishing to the soul - the chance to make a positive impact. This holiday season, as lights twinkle and carols fill the air, the Giving Machines invite you to #LightTheWorld in a truly meaningful way.

Location: Fillmore Plaza

A bank of four machines will be in the Cherry Creek North Winter Wanderland near the entrance to the Cherry Creek Holiday Market, located between 1st and 2nd Ave. on Fillmore St.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Light the World Giving Machines?

Vending machines that make donating to charity as easy as buying a candy bar.

How do they work?

Select an item, add to cart, swipe a debit or credit card and a card representing your gift drops into a bin so you can watch the donations pile up. Get a receipt by text or email. Your information is not collected or shared.  

How can I pay?

Credit card or mobile pay – just like a regular vending machine. (Sorry, no cash.)

PRO TIP: Witness magic unfold as you type '777' into the Giving Machines. This special sequence activates a remarkable gesture - selecting one of every item available in the machine! Imagine, with a simple sequence, you're contributing approximately $1,600 worth of donations to those in need!
