This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines
Solar Milk is a handy light and power bank that anyone can use. It makes an excellent night or flashlight, with four hours of bright light per charge, or six hours of soft light. It can also be used as a power bank to charge cell phones.
Remember, as well as giving power to your phone, Solar Milk is also designed to empower kids in Tanzania to go to school. When you buy a Solar Milk battery and light for yourself, you can also buy the same device for a child in Africa. While you can charge Solar Milk using a USB-C charger at home, African kids charge them at special solar charging systems, called Solar Cows, which are installed in schools.
As of November 24th, this project has raised $62,000 of their $30,000 goal. This project has 46 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $5, you will get one e-thank you card. For a pledge of $28, you will get one Solar Milk set. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1398120161/solar-cow-school-teleporter?
