ARTBOARD / SKATEBOARD – Collaboration with skate-aid
Last weekend Bea, she does all the design stuff for our various “we”- endeavours, and I went to Münster. My second visit to this beautiful old city … We visited skate-aid at the skate palace.
skate-aid – under the umbrella of the Titus Dittmann Foundation – was founded in 2009 by Titus Dittmann, the German skateboarding legend. skate-aid supports humanitarian aid projects for children and young people worldwide. Their goal: to promote a sense of identity and purpose through skateboarding.
Exactly what we are planning to do with our we_school skatepark project.
Therefore I am very happy to announce that skate-aid and we_school “join forces” to let the ARTBOARD/SKATEBOARD project fly. In detail this means:
- we both use our networks to promote the project
- skate-aid will do the auction; they own an ebay charity account and they are a foundation >>> so the entire auction proceeds can go directly to the skatepark – no taxes need to be paid!
- ARTBOARD / SKATEBOARD will become a skate-aid project
- we garantee the handling in India and coordinate the project
- skate-aid brings in its expertise in building skateparks
- we connect them with the locals and provide sustainable progres
So NOW – having all the skateboards ready and having set the ground for a charity auction – all we need is YOU to join and make the auction a HUGE success – for the sake of the young children in rural India.
