The Value of One Skateboard

Why this is so important to us.

Providing Skateboards for Children

We hope to provide skateboards, clothes and skate parks to low income areas throughout the world, to enrich the lives of youths through skateboarding. It may be only a skateboard to you, but to them it offers a few moments of freedom, adventure, creativity and accomplishment. It gives them pride and self-esteem.

This is my board. I can do anything. I can dream to do whatever I set my mind to . . . the world is mine, if only for a few minutes . . . until I go home again. It means freedom . . .

We accept donations of new skateboards, wheels, trucks as well as new and gently used skate brand/style clothing. We’ll be making several trips in the future to Mexico, Cuba and other locations to deliver these items directly to children or to nonprofits who support children. And of course we always accept monetary donations.
