Community-Powered Environmental Data For All

Safecast isn't a device, it isn't big data data, it's people. Safecast community volunteers care so much about collecting environmental data to share with their fellow humans that they spend hours driving in their cars to collect data, traveling to remote destinations, running workshops for kids, translating documents, and helping fellow device owners on the support boards so that everyone has the environmental monitoring information they need to make life choices for themselves and their families.


Safecast Community Runs On Heart And Donations

This Thanksgiving (Labor Thanksgiving Day in Japan) KitHub is donating all of the net profits from sales of bGeigie nanos to Safecast. We know firsthand that the money goes towards expanding their education efforts, supporting the community, starting the new air quality collection initiative and filling in the gaps where data hasn't been collected yet.

Safecast is a nonprofit organization with a lot of dedicated volunteers, but they need money to buy devices, design new devices, run the website that hosts the map, and more. If you aren't in need of a device but you or your organization would like to donate to Safecast, they would appreciate it.

Donate to Safecast.
