The Best Entrepreneur on Shark Tank according to Robert Herjavec, Brian Lim has constructed a new charity initiative from the EmazingLights headquarters in Anaheim. In alliance with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization The Walk and Roll Foundation, EmazingLights is revitalizing dance music for disabled fans by introducing them to the art of LED gloving. Lim calls it:Glove 4 Glove.
As with many of Lim’s curations, this one will send waves throughout the dance music community, spreading the message thatgloving is empowering. By providing disabled children and festival fans with direct access to light up gloves, they discover new ways to express themselves through a fun, therapeutic form of dance.
When Lim started EmazingLights, he just wanted to make awesome lights. He never imagined he would see firsthand how gloving can provide physical and psychological benefits for people with disabilities. His inspiration for Glove 4 Glove came from a 16-year-old paraplegic boy named Matthew Hernandez, whose cerebral palsy causes paralysis in his limbs. After his older brother Mike taught him how to glove, he was able to increase his mobility in his right arm by tenfold.
When Lim heard this, he decided to share Matthew’s story with his 300,000+ EmazingLights followers, and with the rest of the world. Matthew has inspired Glove 4 Glove’s mission: for every Chroma24 Glove set sold, another one will be donated to a person in need. One glove at a time.
EmazingLights and its sister brands, iHeartRaves and Into The AM offer a wide selection of products with creative LED flow arts, unique festival fashion and accessories. They have become known and loved by festival-goers as the leader in the electronic dance music lifestyle.
