An Innovative Solution for a Critical Need

We designed the LuminAID lights for disaster relief first, so every element of the product serves an essential purpose. We set out to design a portable lantern that could be easily distributed after disasters, didn't require any additional parts, and would hold up to extreme conditions. Thus the LuminAID light was born.


Now, everyone's getting the bright idea. LuminAID solar lanterns and phone charger lanterns are used by nonprofits in over 100 countries, and by consumers for emergency preparedness, camping and hiking, and relaxing by the pool.


Take one on your next hike, or keep it in your emergency kit -- just in case.

"Being prepared means being equipped with the proper supplies you may need in the event of an emergency or disaster. Keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit that you can use at home or take with you in case you must evacuate."

-- The American Red Cross

About LuminAID

When we think of our most basic human needs, we often think of food, water and shelter. But when architecture graduate students Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta were asked to design a product to assist post-earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, they considered the dangerous conditions at night in the tent cities and turned their attention to another critical need: light.

They designed the LuminAID light to be easily distributed in time of need by packing and shipping flat.
LuminAID lights are now used worldwide for humanitarian use, and by consumers for emergency preparedness, camping, and hiking. Through LuminAID’s Give Light, Get Light program, customers can purchase a LuminAID light for themselves and sponsor another one to help make light more accessible and sustainable for all.
