- Our Story - About us page
We're on a mission to get aid and relief supplies to those in need quickly and efficiently. Our vision is to become the 'Amazon of Aid' - where buying water filters for kids in Ethiopia is as easy as buying books on Amazon. In 2015, we began building an e-procurement marketplace for emergency preparedness, relief and development products that meet humanity's needs. Just as e-commerce has transformed every other industry, the aid world needs to be brought into the 21st century with the power of a new platform! What makes us different? Here you are able to to purchase in bulk, speak with suppliers, and get international shipping quotes for your supply needs. We also link you to Amazon for single unit orders if that's what you need too!
But our story doesn't stop there. When disaster after disaster took place in 2017 from Hurricane Harvey to Puerto Rico, there were millions in need of supplies and millions wanting to help in a concrete way. Team TLM was frustrated, infuriated and felt a bit helpless. And then we had our ah-ha moment. With our e-commerce platform already loaded up with preparedness and relief supplies, why not allow nonprofits to post the supplies they've determined they need to help people in the form of crowdfunding campaigns. So we built a feature called Level Giving. Whether the supplies are for a preparedness program, a development initiative to help those in poverty or for disaster response, we can help get them deployed in a transparent and cost effective way.
Unfortunately, the rate of natural disasters is increasing, poverty is still prevalent and man-made crises are on the rise. As a custom e-procurement marketplace, we offer everything from tents to reusable sanitary pads that will bring any preparedness, relief effort or entrepreneurial program to life. Let us know what you think!
