Where Your Donation Goes
The charity that all donations will benefit is Survive the Streets.
Survive the Streets is an annual event to help the homeless in the Seattle area. Now in their 18th year, their goal is to provide more than 300 people with the clothing and gear they need to stay safe and warm this winter. On Thanksgiving Day, they will be giving away; sleeping bags, winter coats, fleece jackets, backpacks, duffel bags, socks, gloves, hats and more.
Founders Mike Grabham and his wife Patti Dunn created Survive the Streets 17 years ago because they wanted to help people living on the streets stay warm through the cold and wet Seattle winter. Since then, they now have a registered, 501(c)3 nonprofit. They have served thousands of guests, providing them with socks, gloves, coats, sleeping bags, backpacks and other gear needed to get through the winter months.
Several years ago, they had a large box of warm winter coats meant for the nonprofit stolen off their front porch. This lead Mike to the create Package Guard. It is for this reason that Survive the Streets is at the core of what we do. And why we do, and always will, donate $1 from every Package Guard sold.
What is Package Guard?
Package Guard is a simple-to-use device the size of a Frisbee and can be secured to your front porch. It instantly notifies you and an invite-only Safe Circle group when you receive a package, giving you Peace of Mind of knowing your package has arrived safely on your doorstep. This is especially valuable information when dealing with claims for lost or stolen packaged with delivery companies, because you know if and exactly when your deliveries arrive on your doorstep.
It is also the first smart home product specifically designed to protect your packages delivered to your home. If a package is removed from the device without the verified app the 100dB alarm sounds and sends alerts to your Safe Circle. Package Guard and Safe Circle together help you create a neighborhood watch 2.0 and protect the convenience of online shopping.
Order Package Guard on November 29th to receive free shipping, and 10x OUR donation to Survive the Streets.
*We can match up to $2 per person*
