Wheels for the Mules of Melilla

THE STORY:

This campaign is to purchase and deliver as many skateboards as possible to Melilla, a Spanish City on the north coast of Morocco. Everyday in Melilla, woman young and old load up to 90 kilos (198 lbs) of merchandise onto their backs to carry across the border into Barrio Chino, Morocco to sell for slave wages. For most, it is the only work available to feed their families, and the majority of the women are the sole providers for their family- either divorced or widowed. A skateboard is still considered personal luggage (which is why they carry it on their backs in the first place) so they would be able to at least push it to the border and possibly make their lives slightly easier, instead of collapsing constantly under the weight, resulting in severe injury and often times death. These skateboards would also make it much easier to do multiple trips across the border, as many do as many as 5 trips a day.
