Ripple: World’s First Wearable Support Network

Even in a world of social media and smartphones sometimes your personal safety is still at risk. In fact I think social media makes it easier to put yourself in danger especially if you are “checking in.” I own mace and a lipstick taser but that only goes so far especially if your alone at night in a parking garage. Today I learned about a new technology that you can wear instead of scrambling through your purse to find mace or the taser.

Ripple Network Technologies, Inc. announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for a first-of-its-kind personal safety device and service, Ripple. Users have on-the-go, nationwide access to Tunstall’s professional monitoring team 24/7. Ripple users can discreetly signal their monitoring team for help with the click of a penny-sized Bluetooth wearable, designed by the creators of 360fly and Misfit Shine. Casey Pittock, President and CEO of Tunstall  Americas, stated, “We are excited to partner with Ripple to offer its customers a true solution to personal safety. Whether walking alone at night, meeting somebody new for the first time, facing immediate danger, or even traveling the country, Ripple’s device and service, utilizing Tunstall’s state-of-the-art response center, keep you one-click from the help you need.” Continue Reading →

The Ruby Cup: Helping Young Women in Kenya

Ruby Cup has a 2017 initiative to distribute over 31,000 Ruby Cups to young women in Kenya and other impoverished countries by the end of year. Amazingly 16,000 Ruby Cups have already been distributed through the company’s “Buy 1 – Give 1” program, and 15,000 are awaiting shipment. I personally was unaware how many young women miss school due to their periods and the lack of education about their periods, the female anatomy, reproductive health, and hygiene in Kenya and impoverished countries.

The Ruby Cup founders focus for 2017 is to educate school girls in Kenya about their periods, the female anatomy, reproductive health, hygiene, and how to use a menstrual cup. When I received the email from Ruby Cup about the Kenya project this quote not only stood out but speaks volumes about the lack of education of the menstruation cycle they currently have in Kenya and other impoverished countries.
