Virtual Food Drive
There is a truth in America that many of us do not experience but one that far too many know firsthand: Hunger. It’s unfathomable that 41 million people are food insecure in the United States of America. Forty-one MILLION people may not know where their next meal will come from! That’s insane and it’s hidden from so many of us.
It’s hidden, but it’s there. It’s in inner cities. It's in rural communities. It's in affluent suburbs, cities, towns and neighborhoods across our nation. Of those 41 million people, 13 million of them are children under the age of 18. THIRTEEN MILLION CHILDREN don’t have consistent access to nutritious food sources.
WE can do better. We MUST do better! And while we work to fix the systemic faults in our society that have led us to this tragic reality, we are thankful there is help for those who face hunger today, tonight or tomorrow.
Skelmir has partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Thanks to donations and support from businesses, government organizations and individuals like you, the Feeding America network of food banks, food pantries and meal programs serves every county in the United States.
Even more, 99% of all donations raised by Feeding America go directly into programs serving people in need. Because of this efficiency, they are able to turn every $1 raised into 10 nutritious meals served.
$1 = 10 stomachs filled
$1 = 10 children NOT going to bed hungry tonight
$1 = 10 children getting a healthy, nourishing meal at school so that they can concentrate, learn and thrive
WE can do this, $1 at a time. Let’s get started today!
Our hope is to provide 200,000 meals to people in need in the U.S. and that means raising $20,000. To help us get there, Skelmir will match $2 for each of the first $5,000 donated, up to $10,000. It’s a drop in the bucket, but each of those 200,000 people will see it as far more.
Please join us in our fight to help feed America.
News from Connections 2018
Skelmir® was exhibiting with IMONT at the Connections US event hosted by Parks Associates in San Francisco on 22-24 of May. As advertised, the Connections US event is “The Premier Connected Home Conference”. For more than 30-years, Parks Associates has focused on providing market intelligence on the Connected Home. Their conferences are always on point with a wide range of technology providers for this market. The attendees always include a relevant mix of industry technologists and high-profile executives.
Partnering with Skelmir, IMONT was demoing their unique cloudless and hubless IoT software solution. The founders and engineering team from IMONT have a long track record of successful home IoT deployments. Skelmir’s ability to enable the IMONT Java-based solution on low-end embedded edge devices offers many significant advantages.
IMONT was showing a demonstration of their technology running on the Skelmir CEE-J® VM embedded in a Raspberry Pi gateway and controlling networked IP Camera, Thermostat, Plug Switch, Lights and Door Lock using a simple phone app. All communications were local to the demo – no cloud meant it was fast and remains low cost for high volume deployments.
Skelmir’s ability to deliver optimized virtual machines to host Java applications on Edge gateway and IoT devices make it possible to bring low cost IoT solutions to the masses.
There are a number of problems associated with traditional cloud-based home IoT solutions including: security, reliability, scalability and cost effectiveness. IMONT and Skelmir attracted notable interest from service providers and IoT solution providers alike who are hungry for a game-changing approach to bring success to the home IoT market.
