Here's your chance to contribute to a Kickstarter where you can not only get some sweet product, but you can also support a company that harnesses the power of design to save babies' lives.
Design That Matters, Tim Prestero's nonprofit design firm (which produces our Design Experience That Matters series) is getting close to finalizing the design of their Otter Newborn Warmer, which has the potential to save literally millions of lives in low-resource countries. Now they're trying to raise funding for the Otter's crucial field testing phase.
As DTM's work requires heavy field research, they've been making their own rugged Field Research Kits for years, using durable Dyneema. Now they're offering these kits to backers with this Kickstarter campaign:
If you can't afford one of the kits, please do consider kicking in a little, and/or forwarding this campaign around, to help Tim and DtM make the Otter a reality. "With your support," says Tim, "we can save the lives of countless kids who deserve a chance at a healthy future."
