(NaturalNews) In the aftermath of Hurricane Gustav, which has left more than one million people in Lousiana without power, we've just made a donation that will bring emergency light and radios to those who need it most. We've donated $20,000 worth of EcoLEDs 8-in-1 Emergency Tools to the WorldCare non-profit (www.WorldCare.org) for distribution to Hurricane Gustav victims.

I founded EcoLEDs (www.EcoLEDs.com) in 2007 to bring affordable, non-toxic LED lighting technology to eco-conscious consumers. Through our BetterLifeGoods website (www.BetterLifeGoods.com), we've provided power-saving LED lights to homes, museums and offices around the world.

The 8-in-1 dynamo LED emergency tools we've donated to Worldcare include the following features:

• AM/FM radio
• LED flashlight
• Emergency flashing beacon
• Audible siren
• Glass break (for escaping a vehicle)
• Seatbelt cutter
• Cell phone charger
• Dual power: Batteries or hand-cranked dynamo

The 500 emergency tools we've donated to Worldcare will be flown to Mississippi on Thursday, then distributed to people in Gustav-affected regions who can benefit from using the devices. We do not know exactly who will receive them, but the Worldcare organization will make sure they go to those who need them most.

These LED emergency tools will also prove useful for future hurricanes that might strike the same area.

Helping Protect Lives

As the editor of NaturalNews, I find it hugely rewarding to be able to make a $20,000 donation of equipment to help my fellow Americans. Over the years, we've donated similar amounts of money to earthquake and tsunami victims around the world. We've also supported WWII veterans and local non-profits. While we aren't a wealthy operation by any stretch of the imagination, we have consistently found creative ways to get dollars, food and supplies to individuals suffering from circumstances beyond their control.

Soon, we will be announcing the results of our scholarship fund in Ecuador, where we are sponsoring several students and providing them with clothes, books and the registration fees necessary to complete their high school education. It's all part of the NaturalNews philosophy of giving back to those we can help.

What I really wish, however, is that we could give high-quality nutritional supplements to every expectant mother in the world. That campaign would have a tremendous impact on preventing chronic disease and creating a new generation of healthy kids. We are working on ideas for making that reality come true at a smaller scale. Stay tuned to NaturalNews for more information about our donations, grants and scholarship funds.

If you'd like to make a donation to our non-profit Consumer Wellness Center 501(c)3, you may contact our offices at 520-232-9300 or simply mail a check to 6890 E. Sunrise Dr., Suite 120, #279, Tucson AZ 85750. I am the volunteer director of the Consumer Wellness Center (I do not get paid to serve this function), and we will use your funds to help support future nutritional grant programs to expectant mothers.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
