Rep. Mike Levin Honors Local “Tech-Angels” Brothers as Constituents of the Month

Oceanside, CA - Today, U.S. Representative Mike Levin (D-CA) announced that Rancho Santa Fe brothers Jaiden, Keanu, and Milaan Seeliger, creators of Tech-Angels, are the January Constituents of the Month. During an unprecedented year, these young brothers saw how difficult it was for friends and families to stay in touch due to the pandemic. To fill the missing void of seeing loved ones in person, Tech-Angels collect gently used cell phones, iPads and tablets to give to elderly people in nursing homes so they can stay connected.

See below for Rep. Levin’s statement recognizing the Seeliger brothers in the Congressional Record:

“Madam Speaker, it is my great honor to recognize the Seeliger brothers, Jaiden, Keanu, and Milaan, for their creative and inspiring nonprofit, Tech-Angels, where they collect gently used cell phones, iPads and tablets to give to elderly people in nursing homes so they can stay connected with their loved ones.

“The coronavirus pandemic brought unprecedented changes to our lives, especially to older generations who are most susceptible to the virus. Inspired after their 97-year-old great-grandmother broke her leg and had to move to a nursing home in New York, the boys realized how fortunate they were to be able to see and speak with her on FaceTime on a regular basis.

“Knowing others may not have the same opportunity, they decided to find a way for others in similar circumstances to see their friends and family with the help of technology, creating their non-profit, Tech-Angels. The three brothers soon realized that although their great grandmother knew how to use her devices, many other seniors in nursing homes did not.

“With Tech-Angels, participants not only receive a device to contact their loved ones, but also instructions on how to do it. The brothers also focused their efforts on the veteran community, feeling that veterans have done so much for our country and communities, that this access and service was the least they could for them.

“For their ingenuity, kindness, and big hearts, I’m proud to honor Jaiden, Keanu, and Milaan as my January Constituents of the Month. Having young people in the district so encouraged to help their neighbors and those in need are the perfect example of how California’s 49th Congressional District is so incredibly special. I am grateful for their generosity and bright smiles that ensure our community grows stronger every day.”

Representative Levin’s Constituent of the Month program recognizes outstanding North County San Diego and South Orange County Residents who have gone above and beyond to help their neighbors, give back to their community, and represent the best of our country. Rep. Levin’s December Constituent of the Month was educator, and fierce advocate for Indigenous peoples, Dr. Joely Proudfit. His November Constituent of the Month was Marine Corps Bronze Star veteran, Captain Derek Herrera.
