Upon purchasing the eton emergency radio, eton corp's additional part in this effort is to match the purchase price donated towards the radio and supply additional flash lights and radios to the relief effort.
I just returned from a conference in Baltimore, MD. I chose not to bring my laptop because it was another heavy thing to carry. I thought I would have access to my email at the site via another computer. I don't have a blackberry or android so I am relegated to a computer for this information. My access was limited and I felt a sense of relief and an odd feeling of disconnect.
I could not help think of the disconnect the people in Japan must feel who have lost everything. While Japan may not want our help I cannot stop thinking about the individual without a means of communication and I have been trying to figure out a way to help someone stay connected.
On my train ride back to NY on Saturday I was reading the NY Times. There in the first section was an ad for Eton Corp who has partnered with the Red Cross with the answer I was looking for.
Purchase an Emergency Radio equipped with a built in battery and cell phone charger for someone in Japan. The radio is activated by a crank. I own a similar one myself and they are great to have. No batteries needed. Cost to me? Peace of mind that someone I don't know will now have a means to remain connected in this terrible crisis.
