NaturalNews Editor Mike Adams Donates Dynamo-Powered LED Emergency Tools for Victims of Hurricane Gustav

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(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 ( for distribution to Hurricane Gustav victims.

I founded EcoLEDs ( in 2007 to bring affordable, non-toxic LED lighting technology to eco-conscious consumers. Through our BetterLifeGoods website (, 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.
