Final Stretch: Artist Editions Lanterns Are Almost Here!

Posted by LuminAID (Creator)

We are in the final stretch, everyone!  The Artist Edition Lanterns have cleared customs, and should be arriving at our warehouse later this week.  Once we have them, we'll be able to finish shipping the remaining set of June Backers.  Thank you all for hanging in there, and for your support along the way!  It has been quite the journey.

We got a sneak peek at the Artist Edition lights a few days ago when our production samples arrived, and they look beautiful!  We only printed 250 of these, so they're a true Limited Edition unique to the campaign.

Even better -- for every Artist Edition lantern purchased, we were able to donate one PackLite 16 lantern to our partner SCM Medical Missions.  We shipped the first 1,000 PackLite 16 lanterns to them shortly after the campaign ended, and they have arrived safely in Jordan, where they are being used by refugees in the Za'atari Refugee Camp. We encourage you to read more about SCM Medical Missions' work and see videos of their shipments and distributions on their Facebook page.

You can check out more of the artist Sam Larson's work on Instagram -- when you get your lantern, be sure to tag @samlarson and @luminaid!
