Donating Power Banks To Chennai

 

Update, 12.30 am, Dec 5: It’s the middle of the night and we are happy to report that teams 3, 4, and 5 have been loaded and dispatched to Chennai with food, blankets, powerbanks and other essentials. Some of these will be air-dropped by the Indian Air Force. We put out a desperate call for volunteers to help us out today and we had such an enormous outpouring of support! Thanks to everyone who stood by us and helped us get these teams on the road in time!

Update, 11.00 am, Dec 4: We woke up this morning to the news that all 3 teams from yesterday have successfully reached Chennai and the powerbanks and other relief aid materials are being distributed. ūüôā

More teams are on their way today. So, keep those powerbanks coming in.

Update, 6.30 pm, Dec 3: CNN-IBN is covering us LIVE tonight at 9.00 pm to showcase our campaign and the huge support it’s received. Please catch the show and here’s hoping that inspires more people to sponsor powerbanks to those who need it desperately in Chennai.¬†

Update, 4.00 pm, Dec 3: We just shipped off our first batch of 50 powerbanks and a lot of blankets with the first team. Thanks everyone for the support! 

Update, 7.45 am, Dec 3: We have received a ton of support for this cause and people from all over the world have pitched in, offering power banks, cash and other aid packages Рblankets, packaged food, etc. This kind of response is overwhelming and unprecedented. Thank you all so much! We are receiving a lot of individual requests, where people have specified that a particular person needs a powerbank. We will try our best to ensure that everyone gets a powerbank but it will all depend on the on-ground situation in Chennai. If for some reason the person you requested did not receive the powerbank, we apologize, but rest assured that everyone who receives one will be extremely grateful for your support. 

Request For Volunteers: We are in need of volunteers or organizations who can support us in setting up more trips to Chennai to deliver the powerbanks and aid packages. Please get in touch with us if you have a few hours to spare and are willing to drive down to Chennai. You will be saving a lot of lives. 

With no electricity, people don’t have any means of communicating to the world if they are trapped or if they need immediate assistance. One unique way of helping people is to donate power banks to help people charge their phone batteries and reach out to rescuers and loved ones. We found a lot of cheap options on Amazon and Flipkart.

We have a few people who’re picking them up in Indiranagar today, Dec 5, 2015, in the afternoon. The drop-off address is given below:

Brave New World, 3293/A, Citadel Plaza, 3rd Floor, Indiranagar 12th Main, Bangalore – 560038.

Even if you can’t come and drop it off, you can purchase this online and have it delivered to the above address and we’ll make sure it reaches Chennai!

We are making 2 trips to Chennai today and a few more tomorrow and all through the week! 

If you can, please make sure you charge the powerbanks before dropping them off! 

Update: We have more people offering to drive to Chennai on Dec 4th and 5th as well. So, even if you don’t get one-day delivery, please order it and get it delivered. We’ll make sure they reach Chennai.

PS: Please don’t send us Cash-on-Delivery orders as we won’t be able to accept them. We are requesting you to sponsor the powerbanks.Bangalore for Chennai-01

  7. You guys are doing a great thing!!! Keep going, there are thousands and thousands of people in chennai are in need of your valuable help.

    But in some places like Porur, Valasaravakkam, Virugambakkam, Vadapalani the cellular connectivity is in problem. On those places let firechat help them. Kindly find a way to deliver the Firechat apk by any-means (since there is no connectivity) that would help a lot of lives to get it on instantly after charging the phone through your Power banks.

    Thanks,
