Around the World

Committed to improving the lives of children

It all began with a skateboard. One skateboard that we sent to a child in Turkey.

We’ve delivered clothes and other items of necessity to children across the borders. But time and again, we realized that as much as children need those things, they also need to feel happy, independent, responsible for their own actions, and purposeful. So our focus changed a little. Our goal is to bring skateboards, many, many skateboards, to children in underprivileged communities.

As of today, we’ve sent or hand delivered skateboards across state and national borders to children in Turkey, Mexico, Cuba,¬†California and Washington.

Boards Over Borders is a  501(c)(3) Organization. All donations are tax deductible.

How we help

Teach students new skills

In cooperation with local elementary and middle schools, we taught students to use their hands, and some tools, to create new skateboards for other children.

Share Knowledge

We hope to educate local students about the needs and living conditions of children in other countries, and show them how they can help.

Provide Skateboards

Our goal is to provide skateboards to underprivileged children around the world.

Dream

Our goal for the future is to work with nonprofit organizations in other countries to build skate parks for children who love to skateboard.
