Make an Impact
By donating to BioLite’s Emergency Energy Fund, you are directly helping families cook, charge, and light their way through recovery when natural disasters or crisis strike.
This fund is in partnership with Mercy Corps, a leading global relief organization with the operational expertise to assess, deliver, and deploy energy solutions quickly and effectively to affected regions. As an ongoing campaign, this fund proactively collects donations that can in turn be utilized at any moment, enabling rapid response to communities in need.
Why Emergency Energy?
Like potable water or medical supplies, safe and reliable access to energy is a crucial component of disaster relief. BioLite products require minimal setup and offer a sustainable and safe alternative to gas generators and battery-powered lights. Here are just a few of the ways your donation can help a family:
$15 provides personal solar lighting to an individual, removing the need for candles or lighting that can die out.
$30 outfits emergency responders or survivors with hands-free rechargeable headlamps for safe navigation through nighttime or other low light situations.
$59 equips a recovery tent with a solar home system that offers multi-area lighting, radio for emergency information, and phone charging to stay in communication with loved ones.
$78 enables communities to access clean-burning biomass cookstoves for emergency water boiling and hot meals without reliance on propane.
With your help we can offer fast, impactful support when the grid goes down.
How It Works
If disaster strikes, the Mercy Corps team will survey the affected area and identify the products most relevant and helpful to recovery. From there, a deployment plan will quickly be activated and funds from this campaign will be drawn to secure a shipment of items. We will keep you informed via updates on this channel when BioLite is engaged in a rapid response effort.
Thank you for your generosity and for helping us bring energy where it’s needed most.
