Posted on November 20, 2015

As we quickly approach the end of 2015 and are faced with a tremendous amount of global tragedies, GWEN would love for you to donate to a great cause AND to help promote public safety! 

With the current state of affairs around the world, we feel it is imperative for EVERYONE to be equipped with the best solution to let our loved ones know that we are safe. 

PLEASE consider your 4th quarter tax donation for 2015 to be given to Global Women’s Empowerment Network and our GWEN Alert V.2.

GWEN Alert was one of the first safety mobile apps to the market back in 2012.  GWEN 5 allows for you to upload your top 5 trusted people into the GWEN Alert. If you are ever in danger, then a one button click sends them a pre-set text that you are in trouble with a GPS locator. 

Anyone with a smart phone should have this app, as we offer the GWEN Alert as a FREE download, so that it’s affordable for all. 

  • Campus safety (1 in 4 young women are sexually assaulted annually) – plus recent stats of campus mass-shootings
  • People who travel alone, or late at night – WITH CURRENT GLOBAL INCIDENCES THIS IS A NECESSITY
  • Online dating
  • Domestic Violence

WHAT’S NEW FOR VERSION 2 – We are taking the GWEN Alert to the next level. 

The GWEN Alert2 will capture footage of the perpetrator, through a VIDEO COMPONENT built into the app. Every 20 seconds video is captured and is sent to the cloud. This assures footage capture, in case your phone is destroyed or stolen during any altercation. Visual proof will protect the victim and help stop, or solve a crime. 

So… what is our ask? We are looking to raise $20,000 to update the app. This offers you a tax-deductible donation to Global Women’s Empowerment Network GWEN (501c3) #80-0830394.


Here are a few links to videos (PSA) that were created, to illustrate the use of the GWEN Alert:

Also, please consider donating your used mobile phones. GWEN donates to shelters for battered women.

When our intention is to insult someone, we use “like a girl” to describe their action. When did this phrase turn into something negative? What are we conveying to girls by using it? –GWEN

“I like GWEN” says Lizzie Sider. You should, too!
