ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- June 1st, 2017 kicks-off the nationwide tinySOS campaign to protect 1,000 lives in 30 days. With sexual assault and violent crimes being an epidemic in our society, tinySOS is focused on creating a movement of protection through empowerment. Current statistics show that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 7 men experience physical or sexual violence. The one-for-one matching program will donate a device for each one sold in June 2017 to underprivileged families and students through local organizations and schools such as Laura's House and the LA Unified School District. These devices will empower up to 1,000 people to gain the help they need, with just a click of a button, in the moment they need it most.
Founder Nathan Phillips, a father of four girls, was constantly worried about the well-being of his children. Like any father, he worried about things like how they could get help if something happened on their walk to and from school? Or, if they were at an amusement park and got lost how could they notify him? An entrepreneur at heart, Phillips created tinySOS as a solution to not only his problem, but a common problem of people of all ages. With just a click of the tinySOS button, the person's location and an SOS alert is sent to their family, friends and loved ones. It also makes calling the police a faster process. In many situations, there may not be time to pull out a phone and make a call - or to send a text. But, with just a couple of seconds there could be time to click a button and get lifesaving help that can make all the difference.
Help is now just a click away. tinySOS is revolutionizing the way that we stay safe. One second can change everything. One minute can be the difference between life and death. One lifetime can create an everlasting impact. One donation to tinySOS will provide safety for those you love. And one more will be given to someone in need. One tinySOS button can change everything.
