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.

School is letting out and it’s time to travel. Whether your family is planning a getaway or your teen is headed out on a group trip, or you’re simply planning a day hike, safety is a key consideration before walking out the front door. The following are a few suggestions to help keep you and your loved ones safe.

• Use GPS technology. We make this a simple step with our GWEN Alert, our free phone application featuring and emergency button to use in times of distress. With one discreet click of a button on a smart phone you can send an alert and GPS location to five pre-selected contacts the “GWEN 5” who can respond and/or send emergency support. To download, visit the Apple app store here:

• Share your itinerary with friends and family at home. Make sure these are the same ones who are programmed into your GWEN Alert.
• Research your destination beforehand. Know the weather conditions, the areas to avoid, the water and food quality.
• Lock your luggage. You can’t lock your luggage for air travel, but be sure to lock it all other times. Whether in your hotel room, with the bellhop or anywhere else out of view make sure it’s locked so you return from your trip with everything you packed.

Safe travels!
