Over the month of December, Skateistan is hoping to raise $60,000 to help keep them rolling into next year. Skateistan has big plans for 2015, so this is their biggest fundraising goal to date and they need your help to get there!
They only reach out to our supporters for donations a couple of times a year; this is your chance to make a huge difference in the life of a child.
Why? It matters for kids to have safe places to play, especially those living in difficult circumstances or in a conflict situation. In places like Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa, the streets aren’t a safe place for children. Everyone knows the value of a warm meal and school supplies, but Skateistan’s programs provide all that and more. Children deserve more – they deserve a childhood. They deserve an escape from the realities and stresses of growing up in an extremely difficult setting.
That’s where Skateistan comes in.
Recently, Skateistan was featured on a special 25th anniversary edition of CBS ‘Courage in Sports.’ They are really excited about the feature, and it does a brilliant job at telling the story of Skateistan and capturing the magic that is happening there. Watch it to learn why Skateistan is so special, and keep the magic happening by making a donation!
