GoalZero & Barebones Match Purchase Dollars for Haiyan Relief

sharethesunLeading mobile solar equipment manufacturer Goal Zero Solar and their sister company Barebones (makers of greenhouses, tents, and more) have teamed up to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan to get their basic needs met:

Four essential human needs: Power, shelter, water and food. These make up the four essential needs for human life. Both Goal Zero and our sister company Barebones were created to provide a framework for these essentials.

On November 7 Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in the Philippines, and in an instant, those four basic needs were washed away. We saw the immediate need to help first responders, and decided to collaborate on a Share the Sun project.

We’ve already sent solar panels, power, lights, and Barebones shelters with our partners Team Rubicon and Charity Vision to aid first responders and help provide immediate relief, but we want to do more.

We need your help to do more.

How you can help: Anything you buy on or, today through December 2, 2013, will be matched dollar-for-dollar in solar panels, power, lights, and Barebones shelters.

If you were waiting for the right time to pick up a solar charger, remote power solution, a rugged tent or greenhouse, wait no longer, because every dollar you spend at one of these companies will go to help restoring basic human needs after the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan.
