May 13, 2017
Konotop is a small town located in northern Ukraine, about 3 hours from Kyiv by train. It was here that I taught English with the Peace Corps for two years. The city became more than just a place where I lived and worked though, it became my home. The Ukrainian people are some of the most generous and kind people I have ever met. They have taught me so much about life and the importance of sharing that with others. This project is a chance to return that favor and give back. Konotop has soccer fields and playgrounds for small children, but there currently is not a place for those interested in skateboarding or BMX to practice their sport. This skate park is going to be in the central park in town where everyone will have access to skate or bike at their own free will. The city government has also agreed to provide a handful of skateboards that people will be able to use for free. Thank you for your consideration to donate to this project. If you do choose to donate, you will impact the lives of children in Konotop for years to come. Thank you = Дякую (Dyakuyu!), Jeramie
