Thank you, Sy! That is a beautiful, useful, solar-powered design! I've just
ordered one through the IndieGoGo crowd-funding site. If only it were ready
for Halloween tomorrow!

I especially like the fact that my order includes a donation of a SoLight
to an Indonesian family affected by the 2018 tsunami. Our Princeton Public
Library Origami group got its start shortly after the terrible 2004
Indonesian tsunami. A kid at an origami program at Cotsen Children's
Library, Princeton University, asked me how to make an origami Wave. That
was the inspiration for a series of tsunami relief fundraisers using
origami. Our group emerged from that effort--and members recently
contributed generously to  UNICEF's tsunami relief efforts. (This reminds
me that I should send the Simple Wave model to World Origami Days:
