*Please note that orders placed through this program should ONLY be used for advocacy and fundraising to  support ShelterBox.  You are responsible for collecting funds and writing a check to ShelterBox at the end of your fundraiser.  LuminAID can connect you to the ShelterBox contact for your country.  

If you are interested in fundraising to support another cause (ex: your Rotary club or another nonprofit), or in purchasing lanterns for humanitarian distribution, LuminAID has other programs available to support those efforts and our team is happy to discuss options with you.

LuminAID is proud to offer discounted pricing on our solar lanterns and phone chargers to ShelterBox Affiliates and supporters to support your fundraisers and events.

Online Ordering

We have three pre-set Fundraising Packages that should work for most groups.  If you don't have funds for an upfront purchase, we recommend buying an Education Package ($250 USD) to use as display models to collect orders before returning to purchase a larger package.  All lights available on this page include ShelterBox branding at no additional cost.

Prefer to design your own package?  

You can purchase the lanterns individually to fit your budget and event needs.

LuminAID co-founders Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta invented inflatable solar lighting technology as graduate design students in 2010. It was just after the earthquake in Haiti and they saught to invent something that could help those lacking access to electricity have a safe, sustainable source of lighting that could be easily distributed in large volumes. 


 LuminAID has since grown to distribute its products in a variety of channels. In addition to humanitarian aid, LuminAID lights and phone chargers are available in retailers including REI and Home Depot. LuminAID was featured on ABC’s show Shark Tank in 2015 and secured an investment deal from Mark Cuban. The company has received additional awards including the Toyota Mothers of Invention Grant at Women in the World and was an exhibitor at the first ever Maker Faire at the White House in 2015. 


Anna and Andrea continue to manage and run the company today.
