Thanks to everyone who made this happen so quickly. We put the heaters to good use during the harshest winter Kabul has seen in 30 yrs!  See more

BENEFITING: SKATEISTAN

THE STORY:

Lots of people offer to donate skateboards to Skateistan, which is extremely thoughtful, but the fact is there are many other important things needed to keep doing what we do. Winter in Afghanistan can be very cold, often dropping to 15 degrees Fahrenheit. For most of our students, some living in homes with no windows, coming to Skateistan is one of the only chances they have to be warm for a little while.

The heating systems in Skateistan's classrooms are currently in need of an upgrade so that they will function regularly and keep students warm during their lessons. Skateistan is seeking your support in order to purchase two electrical strip heaters, which can be bought for 90 USD each on the local market.

To see what the students have been working on lately in class check out the Skateistan blog: http://www.skateistan.org/
