LuminAID founders Anna Stork and Andrea Sreshta knew they needed to zero in on providing light for disaster areas. In response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the duo designed a solarpowered inflatable light – lightweight, portable and waterproof – that has now been distributed in relief efforts around the world. The program recently passed a big milestone with more than 10,000 lights distributed and has introduced two new solarpowered inflatable lights that are just as suitable for backyards and backcountry hikes as for disaster relief.
Through the Mothers of Invention program, Toyota supports Stork and Sreshta’s innovative and creative approach to tackle this issue. The Toyota Mothers of Invention program provides grants to remarkable women actively contributing to their communities and to the world through innovation, entrepreneurship, and invention. Toyota's support enables these organizations to multiply their impact and expand their reach.
