Makers4Good (formerly known as Extrasensory Devices) was founded in 2011 in the heart of Silicon Valley. After launching several successful Kickstarter campaigns, the company was growing in terms of product sales, but wanted to do more to give back to the world at large. Inspired by the giving model of Newman’s Own, Makers4Good.com has committed to giving away all of its profits to charitable causes through its nonprofit wing, Makers4Good.org.
Makers4Good.org gives to many organizations in all parts of the world with a focus on education—and in impoverished regions, its giving programs focus on access to energy for safety, light, education, and health.
