STREAMLIGHT® LAUNCHES ORANGE NANO LIGHT®
Proceeds to Benefit BADF Disabled Hunters and Others in Need
EAGLEVILLE, PA — July 10, 2012 — Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting equipment, introduced the Orange Nano Light® as part of the company's Lights for a Cause series of flashlights. The new light will benefit the Buckmasters® American Deer Foundation (BADF) community programs.
Streamlight will donate $1.00 to BADF for each Orange Nano Light sold. Proceeds will help support BADF's programs for hunters with disabilities, Life Hunts for children with critical illnesses and the Project Venison distribution program for hungry Americans.
"The Orange Nano Light is our way of giving back to the hunting community and helping to meet the needs of hunters with disabilities and others in need," said Streamlight President and Chief Executive Officer Ray Sharrah. "BADF's programs benefit so many in the hunting community, as well as those in need, and we are proud to be a part of their efforts."
The tiny keychain light measures only 1.47 inches in length, but boasts a white LED that delivers 10 lumens. Fabricated from machined aircraft aluminum, the light runs up to eight hours, powered by four IEC-LR41 coin cells. The light's parabolic-shaped LED area optimizes beam performance.
The light features a rotating on/off head switch, a non-rotating snap hook for easy one-handed operation and a double-sided FOB that features the BADF logo on one side and the Streamlight logo on the other side. The light boasts a 100,000 hour lifetime LED. It has an MSRP of $12.00.
BADF administers programs including Hunts for People with Disabilities, which sponsors big game hunts, and, Life Hunts, which grants hunting wishes for critically ill and severely disabled youth.
Another BADF program is Project Venison, which was established in 1991 to give hunters an outlet to help give something back to the community. More than 3,000 venison meals were provided during the program's first year. Due to the program's tremendous growth, BADF estimates that Project Venison has served more than one million meals to date.
Streamlight's other Lights for a Cause include the Pink Nano Light®, Pink Strion® LED and Pink ProPolymer® 2AA to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF); the Blue Nano Light® to benefit Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the Red Nano Light® to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF).
