I was cruzin around the bike sites like a always do and came across this little item from [BikeRumor.com](http://http://www.bikerumor.com/2009/10/26/ultimate-schwag-timbuk2-solar-powered-portable-light-bag-at-poptech/#more-11019 "http://www.bikerumor.com/2009/10/26/ultimate-schwag-timbuk2-solar-powered-portable-light-bag-at-poptech/#more-11019")

Timbuk2 and PopTech came together with The Portable Light Project to create some sweet bags with solar panels and LED lights. These bags were then give to people in areas where electricity is hard to find and not dependable.

These are such a great idea! I love the concept and the help it will provide. Please go to the following links to find out more info.

Also, I you want to go in with me and get some bags for the needy drop me a line via email, twitter, or facebook. I am throwing the idea around in my head. Minimum order is 200, but I imagine there should be away to get through that.
