Hi Everyone! So sorry it has been so long since our last post! These past two months have been very exciting and busy for LuminAID Lab. We are incredibly grateful for the IndieGoGo campaign and the community of supporters that helped us launch the LuminAID light! We shipped over 1,500 LuminAID lights a few weeks ago to IndieGoGo supporters in over 25 countries. We were thrilled to hear how happy so many people were with the product and have received a lot of great feedback. If you received a light from the campaign, we encourage you to e-mail us your comments at info@luminAIDlab.com. We value your input! We’ve sent a few hundred lights to partner organizations thus far and will be sending the remaining matched lights in the weeks ahead. We hope to collect pictures and video of the lights in use and profile the different organizations in the blog. Below is the growing list of organizations receiving LuminAID lights: (a huge thanks to these organizations for helping us distribute the matched lights) Indigenous Education Foundation of Tanzania, Tanzania Solar Sister, Uganda Uboshobozi, Rwanda Elephant Energy, Namibia Ponheary Ly Foundation, Cambodia Pencils of Promise’s Xongja, Na Mai, and Phayong Primary Schools, Laos Room to Grow Foundation, Thailand Anekal Orphanage in Bangalore, India Aloysian Boys Home in Mangalore, India Center for Unfolding Learning Potentials in Jaipur, India EcoSolutions NGO in Mumbai, India Can-Do, Haiti

We're finalizing packaging designs and further improving on a few details of the product. The retail portion of the site should be up and running shortly. Stay tuned! Thanks again for your support of the product and mission! We're really looking forward to the steps ahead.
