Happy Wednesday everyone! I have been hinting at something huge coming and here it is from The Survival Mom herself! It’s The Survival Mom Radio Network Hosts Grand Giveway! Come celebrate this fabulous Radio Network with all of us! I love being on this team and I hope you guys are all taking a listen each week to all the fabulous show hosts each week…
Now onto the big news from The Survival Mom!
The Survival Mom Radio Network began from nothing more than a tiny idea into a network of all-women hosts whose shows, just since this past May, have been downloaded nearly 1.4 million times.
Needless to say, we’re pretty darn proud of that! 1.4 million downloads in just 2 1/2 months!
To celebrate this milestone and give you something special to get prepared during National Preparedness Month, we have two Grand Giveaways! Both include fantastic prizes worth hundreds of dollars each.
Here’s the prize line-up for Grand Giveaway #1. WINNER TAKES ALL!
Get prepared for emergencies with solar energy!
SunJack is giving away a great prize package worth more than $150. It includes a 14W SunJack solar charger with an 8000mAh battery and a USB CampLight Bulb. I have long recommended buying small solar charged products, including solar battery chargers because they offer affordable and renewable energy.
The SunJack solar charger fully charges in about 5 hours and comes with a battery that can charge your electronics even when the sun isn’t cooperating. It’s compatible with most cell phones, iPad and other tablets, USB lights, digital cameras and more.
If you’ve ever needed, I mean really needed, your cell phone, only to find it with a dead battery, you’ll appreciate having a way to charge it without an electric outlet and charging cord. Nowadays we use our cell phone for much more than just a phone call or text message. My own phone stores dozens of ebooks, including plenty of survival manuals, and useful apps, including those from Red Cross. Even your phone’s camera can come in handy in emergencies.
Add emergency supplies and food
Augason Farms has been a long-time sponsor of this blog and their quality products are a part of my ownfood storage pantry. They have donated a 72 Hour 1-Person Emergency Kit, which is ideal to keep in the trunk of your car, store by the back door if you ever have to evacuate in a hurry, or to give to a college student or senior citizen.
This kit contains:
- 5 food pouches
- Creamy Chicken with Rice – 7.5 servings
- Creamy Potato Soup Mix – 6 servings
- Honey Coated Banana Slices – 6 servings
- Dehydrated Apple Slices – 6 servings
- Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal – 10 servings
- 8 survival items
- FireOn® Fuel Disks – 5
- Portable Folding Stove
- Waterproof Matches – 1 pkg
- 2 Quart Aluminum Kettle
- Water Filter Bottle
- 6-in-1 Multi-Functional Camping Tool
- Plastic Measuring Cup
- Emergency Blanket
This kit can easily be customized by adding a roll of duct tape, some paracord, a multi-tool or pocket knife, and an LED flashlight. It’s a great starter kit for anyone and a great addition to have on hand if you’re already prepared.
A handy water purifier
All too often, extreme weather events and natural disasters bring with them tainted water. You always want to have a handy, reliable water purifier and Whirlpool’s new EveryDrop Water Filter can filter a gallon of water in just 2 minutes. I love the versatile funnel design, which allows you to fill many different types of containers, including your favorite canteen or water bottle.
It’s long-lasting filter can filter enough water to fill 450 water bottles, and it filters water as the same speed as your tap! No more waiting, drip, drip, drip, for your drinking water to taste clean and fresh without the smell and taste of chlorine. And, it’s portable. Small enough to fit in a purse, backpack, emergency kit, or gym bag.
You can always purchase the EveryDrop Water Filter at retail stores and online.
Communication is a vital piece that too many preppers forget
When the power goes out and the phone lines are down, you want and need to know what’s going on. Accurate and up to date information is a critical part of being prepared.
ProblemSolvers knows this and has donated a Desktop Weather Alert Radio. This radio has an automatic alert system that provides weather alerts specific to your area. You’ll immediately know when an Emergency Alert System message goes out and whenever there’s an advisory, watch, or warning for your areas. It can receive these messages for up to 9 different local areas, and the messages are also displayed visually.
This Weather Alert Radio is definitely an item to have on hand, especially if you live in an area prone to extreme weather.
You’ll also need to be ready for medical emergencies
12 Survivors is a brand new company that we really like. Their products are creative and designed for multiple survival scenarios. They’ve provided a really terrific prize package of 3 popular products, and you’ll want all of them in your prepper stash.
First is their First Aid Rollup Kit. Unlike other medical and first aid kits I’ve owned, this one rolls out to display all the contents. Just a couple of nights ago I was digging through my own kit, looking for a specific medication. There’s no need to dig around in this Rollup Kit from 12 Survivors. I appreciate that!
It contains the basics of any first aid kit:
- 1 Emergency blanket
- 1 Poncho
- 8 PBT elastic bandages
- 4 Sterile non woven gauze pads
- 2 Wet cleaning wipes
- 4 BZK antiseptic swabs
- 4 Alcohol prep pads
- 1 Pair of PVC gloves
- 10 Adhesive band aids
- 1 Breath mask for mouth to mouth
- 1 Pair of tweezers
- 1 Zinc oxide adhesive plaster (tape)
- 2 Pairs of scissors
- 1 Tourniquet band
- 1 Emergency dressing
As the kit is unrolled, you can easily see its contents, which aids greatly in tending to an injury quickly.
This is one of those kits that can easily be customized with common medications you and your family use and additional first aid supplies.
12 Survivors has also thrown in a creative product we’ve not seen before, a Fish and Fire Emergency Kit.In a dire emergency, when you need the basic supplies for fishing, this small kit provides:
- 7 ft of paracord
- Flint rod and tinder
- Knife blade
- Tin foil
- 32.8ft of fishing line
- 2 weights
- 2 swivels
- 2 floats
- 2 fishing hooks
- Alcohol pad
Add a multi-tool and you’re almost ready for anything!
Again, from 12 Survivors comes a handy multi-tool, an item that has earned its place in any emergency kit. Keep one of these in your glove box, kitchen drawer, purse, school backpack, and with your camping equipment.
This particular multi-tool weighs almost 9 ounces and is small enough to keep just about anywhere. It comes with a knife blade, small saw blade, picks, screwdriver, bottle opener, and more.
All of this, plus a great set of books!
Author Steven Konkoly of Jakarta Pandemic fame has donated a set of his series, The Perseid Collapse. This series is getting rave reviews on Amazon and with good reason. All of Steven’s books are well-researched, fast paced, and realistic. This set includes:
You’ll enjoy all of these, and don’t forget to pick up Jakarta Pandemic, which introduces the courageous and long-suffering Fletcher family.
I hope you’re feeling like a winner!
