Watts Up? Our New Campaign to Spread Solar Light- Tweet to Win

solar-powered headlamp part of #wattsup campaign

'Watts up' out there everyone? We want to know what’s going on in your part of the world, and we want you to tell us. We’re launching a new program to bring solar powered lights to the people who need them! Right now, over 20% of the world lives without access to electricity. Can you imagine reading, cooking, caring for our families – even delivering babies – in darkness? Neither can we, and it’s a reality for over 900 million people. These solar-powered lights are being used in Sierra Leone, Tanzania, the Philippines, Haiti, Nigeria and Guatemala.

This light has always been one of our bestsellers, and now we’re giving some away! 500 hours of light, a 30 foot beam, and it’s incredibly durable and lightweight. No cords or batteries, no complicated directions- just a little box of powerful light.

Follow, get your friends to follow too, and retweet @maternovalights and you could win one or two of these lights mailed to you at no cost (a $20-$40 value). Ten lucky people will win from the pool of tweets, posts and retweets. Tell us why you need it in 140 characters or less—“we need these to light the way for ..???” #wattsup. Upload your pics and stories to win even MORE! We’ll be selecting two additional winners for both the most creative use of the light (It can be anything – use your imagination), along with our ‘Welcome Light’ winner for helping moms have a safe delivery. We can’t wait to make some new friends, share your remarkable stories, and light the way to better days ahead.

Don't use Twitter? That's alright, Facebook will do too.
