LuminAID Lab is proud to introduce the LuminAID light: a solar-rechargeable, inflatable lamp that packs flat and inflates to create a lightweight, waterproof lantern. Safe, sustainable, and portable, the LuminAID light provides up to six hours of LED light, ideal for disaster relief situations, recreational use outdoors, or in the home as an extra light source. Our mission: make light more affordable, sustainable, and available for everyone.
Join us in the “Give Light, Get Light” campaign as we seek to launch the LuminAID light and distribute it in January 2012 to you and to our community projects. Take a LuminAID light with you on your next adventure or trip, tuck it away in your first aid kit, or string them together to light your path ahead. $25 pre-buys you one light and gives another to someone in need.
Your gift of light will give one student 4 more hours to study at night. It will allow one small business owner to stay open for a few extra hours. Give in honor of loved ones for the holidays and we will e-mail you a tribute card to let them know. Give in bulk, and we will custom print your logo on the LuminAID lights you donate. Community Projects for Matching Lights
We are partnering with organizations to help distribute and field test the LuminAID lights. In Rajasthan, India, where 1 in 2 households lack electricity, we are working with with Root Alliance to distribute the LuminAID lights to rural schools, homes and small-business owners. On our blog, we’ll detail progress through video and pictures of all of our community projects. If you are an organization interested in receiving and distributing lights, please contact us at info@luminAIDlab.com .
When the campaign ends, we will place an order with our manufacturer. Production of the LuminAID lights will take between 45-60 days. As soon as we receive the LuminAID lights, we will ship you your pledge package. We expect to ship all pledge packages to backers by January 2012. The tribute cards will be e-mailed as soon as the campaign ends for you to print or e-mail for the holidays. We look forward to giving you updates along the way and making you the recipient of one of our first LuminAID lights!
Shipping costs within the USA & Canada are included in the pledge amount. For international shipping, please add $15.

100% of funds will go to producing and distributing the LuminAID lights to you and to our community projects. We are fully committed to getting production underway. If we don’t reach our fundraising goal, it may take us a bit longer, but we will still fulfill the order you place. We would love to exceed our fundraising goal and produce more than 1,000 lights.
Forbes has called it: “a possible alternative to Thomas Edison’s 1879 electric discovery that has the potential to change, not only the light bulb, but also the world.”
