SKATEISTAN SAYS:
Thank You for Your Donation …
Thank You for Your Donation to Skateistan Crowdrise

You're receiving this message because you’ve made a generous donation to Skateistan using Crowdrise, and we wanted to say thank you. On Saturday September 8th, Skateistan lost four amazing students, Khoshid (also a girls' skate teacher), Nawob (volunteer teacher in boys' skate sessions), Mohammad Eeza (Skateistan student since before our Kabul skatepark was even built), Parwana (8-year-old sister of Khoshid, who registered with us last week), in a suicide attack. Additionally, Skateistan student Navid is seriously injured in hospital. Our sincere condolences go to all the families and friends of our students and the other children killed or injured by the attack.

We cannot thank you enough for the compassion and support you have shown in the greatest challenge to date for Skateistan. It's important to us and to the families that these children are never forgotten. We've just posted an update on our blog at http://www.skateistan.org/blog/thanks-your-generous-support.
It is at these most difficult and heartbreaking of times that the harsh reality of many of our students’ lives becomes vivid. It is clear that Skateistan is not only a place of education and fun, but also a place of safety and a thriving community for youth from all social backgrounds. Skateistan is a place where kids can just be kids, but it is also a place where we offer opportunities for these children to grow, to access education, to gain confidence, build life skills, and empower youth to be agents of change.

All donations to Skateistan are very gratefully received, and all used to further our work at our project sites. We currently have projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Pakistan. If you'd like to receive more regular updates on our activities, be sure to follow us on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/skateistan) or Twitter (http://twitter.com/Skateistan). If you think someone else might be interested in Skateistan, please tell them to visit us at www.skateistan.org.
