Shining the Light of International House - Big Give 2023

In this video, we connect this year's theme of "Shining the Light" to the I-House Sunday Supper candlelight ceremony. We hear from seven current residents on how I-House has made them shine their light. 

Please invite your friends and family to donate, share this video, and spread the light of International House around the world!
