THE STORY:

SKATEISTAN wrote -

What does a 14-year-old Afghan girl dream about for her future? How has skateboarding changed the life of a teenage boy who used to wash cars in the streets of Kabul? How does it feel to ride down a skateboard ramp and start going to school for the first time in one day? How can education and skateboarding create change?

This December 2014 we’re aiming to raise $35,000 USD and we need your help! By joining our biannual fundraising drive you can empower Afghan and Cambodian youth.

As a part of this fundraising drive, we've released a video, as well as photo stories to show how some of our students, staff, and supporters lives have changed since they’ve become a part of Skateistan, what their plans are for the future, and how together we can 'Keep Skateistan Rolling'.

Since 2007 we’ve rarely asked our supporters for donations but as a grassroots NGO we in fact rely on the generosity of people around the world like you to continue the work that we do. At the same time, we know how annoying it gets to be hassled on the street by some stranger with a clipboard or bombarded with guilt-inducing images, so we thought instead that we’d do two fundraising drives a year that not only ask for donations, but also show you the impact your donations have on the lives of Skateistan’s students.

How to join the 'Keep Skateistan Rolling' campaign:

1) Take 2 minutes to support Skateistan, and make a donation right now!
2) Fundraise with your friends and family using this cool "Donations Collections Envelope".
3) Share our posts and videos on social media with the hashtags #KSR and #whyskateboarding, through email, on your blog, or even in-person with humans!

We appreciate any support you can offer. Every donation, no matter how small, helps keep Skateistan students rolling towards new opportunities and personal empowerment. To those of you who donate even more, we love you for it and we'll put it to good use!
