ARTBOARD / SKATEBOARD – Collaboration with skate-aid

Tags:

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.
