WakaWaka solar power station and light - 2 projects

From their 2012 project at Kickstarter:

We designed the coolest looking solar LED lamp and we called it ‘WAKAWAKA’ which means ‘Shine Bright’ in Swahili. ...

Why is it cool looking? Because we want WAKAWAKA to become a success in the US and Europe as well. We hope YOU like it for example. And if YOU like WAKAWAKA, than so will someone in Kenya, Tanzania, India or Haiti.

I think that's a great way of describing one of the important ways that give1-get1 differs from regular donations.

Some of the rewards:

  • $30 donate a lamp to a school in Kenya
  • $35 get one
  • $65 "WAKAWAKA ONE FOR ME ONE FOR ...? yes, that's the question"

Total funding: $48,399. A followup project earlier this year received $419,474:

Super efficient Personal Solar Power Station to charge your iPad, iPhone or any other smart phone. With excellent reading light.
