Jiobit Pledges to ‘Go Blue’ During Autism Awareness Month by Donating Proceeds to KultureCity
April 1, 2019 (Chicago, IL) - Jiobit, a Chicago-based provider of wireless location-based technologies, proudly announces a partnership with KultureCity, an organization focused on providing acceptance and inclusion for individuals with autism and other sensory needs. In observance of Autism Awareness Month, Jiobit will donate a portion of all April sales to support KultureCity.
This April marks the twelfth annual World Autism Awareness Month. Currently, 1 in every 59 children receive a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by age 8.* With the increase of prevalence and continued lack of acceptance, Jiobit pledges to ‘go blue’ this April through donations to KultureCity in order to increase global understanding and acceptance of people with autism.
Jiobit’s first product, the smallest and longest lasting real-time location tracker for kids, was inspired after Founder and CEO, John Renaldi lost track of his then 6-year-old wandering son at Maggie Daley Park in Chicago. Jiobit started shipping in 2017 and it is now being used by thousands of families across all 50 states.
“We are a team of mostly parents and one of our core beliefs at Jiobit is providing a reliable solution for children to feel safe, secure, and independent,” said John Renaldi, CEO and Co-Founder of Jiobit. “Through this partnership with KultureCity, we can now provide a reliable safety solution to families caring for children with a tendency to wander, while also providing children with autism their sense of freedom and independence.”
Kulture City began as a movement throughout the United States when parents of children with autism began to fight against the exclusion and segregation of their children. KultureCity is a catalyst for change in our society and industry by providing simple solutions that create acceptance and inclusion of individuals with autism. KultureCity’s four main pillars are: sensory inclusive initiative, lifeBOKs program, Tablet:Kulture, and Toys AUcross America. These programs bring new hope into the lives of families and now, Jiobit will provide an added layer of safety and security to families.
“We have worked tirelessly for acceptance, inclusion, and a better future for individuals with autism, and now with products like Jiobit, that future is becoming a reality,” said Julian Maha, Co-Founder of KultureCity. “Jiobit’s location tracking services are able to provide children with autism the freedom they may not have had before, and parents with peace of mind.”
