Citizen announced its latest partnership with non-profit Good360, the global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. Through partnerships with private, public and other non-profit organizations, Good360 is active in all phases of disaster recovery by providing needed goods and supplies to disaster-impacted regions and communities. In the wake of the recent destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, Citizen together with Good360 is distributing real-time Luci EMRG relief lights to Puerto Rico, South Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Citizen known for its Eco-Drive technology, which generates power from any light source, artificial and natural to keep their watches running, Citizen looks to emphasize the power of light both literally and figuratively through its partnerships. This has inspired the brand to seek out where light is needed and provide that same power and inspiration to those who are suffering from these natural disasters. The Luci EMRG solar powered lights share the same characteristic as Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology, using a natural resource to create power.
After Hurricanes Irma and Maria, many have been left without electricity and basic needs. Citizen and Good360 are providing 5,000 Luci EMRG lights to help support the recovery of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and southern Florida. Citizen is driving the initiative by offering a donation of a Luci EMRG solar-powered light with every purchase made in the brand’s Times Square flagship store or on CitizenWatch.com, empowering its customers to be part of the brand’s disaster relief efforts. The donation of a Luci EMRG solar-powered light will be given with every Citizen watch purchase, up to 5,000 lights.
Good360’s mission is to bring hope and dignity to those in need, including survivors of disasters. We can only do that with the support of generous partners like Citizen. The Luci EMRG Lights fill a gap in the road to recovery for communities that have lost power in the wake of a major disaster.
