Within four days of the World’s Tallest Donation Box launch, Burj Khalifa shone bright with 393,000 lights as donations continue pouring in to support coronavirus-hit communities in the UAE.
The light donations of individuals and companies across the country will secure 393,000 meals to the ‘10 million meals’ campaign that aims to provide food support for those affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Individuals from 100 nationalities contributed to the World’s Tallest Donation Box that provides a meal for every light purchased for as little as Dhs10.
Donations illuminated 46 floors of Burj Khalifa, with the goal to shine the 1.2 million lights on the façade of the world’s tallest building in a message of solidarity and hope to communities hard hit by the pandemic across the world.
The World’s Tallest Donation Box enables companies, entities and the public to purchase lights of Burj Khalifa, for as little as Dh10 each, to provide meals for those in need.
Donors from different parts of the world are posting positive messages of hope as they make their contributions on the initiative’s website www.tallestdonationbox.com.

The World’s Tallest Donation Box enables companies, entities and the public to purchase lights of Burj Khalifa, for as little as Dhs10 each, to collectively donate 1.2 million meals or food parcels to low-income individuals and families in the UAE.
For every light purchased for Dhs10 through the website www.tallestdonationbox.com, one meal is provided to someone in need through the ‘10 million meals’ campaign, with the goal to illuminate the 1.2 million lights on the façade of the world’s tallest building in a move that reflects social solidarity and cohesion of the UAE’s diverse society to bring much-needed relief to coronavirus-hit communities across the country.
As donations continue to pour in, Visa has pledged 55,000 meals to coronavirus-hit communities in the UAE, lighting up 55,000 pixels on Burj Khalifa as part of the World’s Tallest Donation Box. The Dhs550,000 donation contributes to illuminating Burj Khalifa’s 1.2 million lights to secure 1.2 million meals and food parcels for the ‘10 million meals’ campaign that supports individuals and families affected by the covid-19 pandemic during Ramadan.
