Aug. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Survival Gear and Off-Grid Solutions (developer of the WakaWaka) are actively encouraging other resellers to join the campaign.  

For those returning to hurricane, flood or tornado ravaged homes, or possibly living in short term shelters, darkness brings on its own complications. “We know from our work around the world the effect the lack of reliable cost effective light can have on a family,” stated Camille van Gestel, CEO, Off Grid Solutions, developers of the WakaWaka Solar Lamp. “We designed the WakaWaka solar lamp to survive the harsh environments of Africa, India and South America, but we also recognize that when disasters happen here, the need for reliable safe, efficient light is just as great.”

WakaWaka is the most efficient solar lamp on the planet according to Off Grid Solutions. The patented Intivation technology enables the WakaWaka to provide over 16 hours of continuous and excellent reading light with only an 8 hour charge. In reality that means as long as the sun comes up, even with cloudy skies, or pouring with rain, WakaWaka will charge and you will have safe, efficient light all night long.  No searching for batteries or USB connections required!

“After testing the WakaWaka Solar Lamp a few weeks ago, it was clear to me that this lamp should be a disaster preparation standard,” stated Survival-Gear CEO Steve Thibeault. “I wrote a full review describing how effective this lamp is in camping and a no-brainer for any type of emergency situation and disaster prep. Most people are not prepared for disaster and anything we can do to help people start thinking ahead will help families and communities well into the future”.  You can find the review at

Off Grid co-founder Camille van Gestel is extremely proud to be working with Survival Gear to deliver 10% of their WakaWaka proceeds to the WakaWaka Foundation which in turn will enable the foundation to make Free Solar Lamps available to disaster victims.  WakaWaka will have a profound impact on the lives of disaster victims and their future perspective. “You simply can’t imagine what the impact is for these families unless you have spent some time in the dark yourself. Thank you Survival Gear!”
