Skate & Solidarity

A few months back we shipped 8 boxes worth of sneakers to the local skate community in Uganda. Thanks to our man Andy for allowing us to get involved with his mission. When you buy one of these shirts you will be directly supporting the dreams & programing of the Ugandan Skateboard Union. Amidst a war- torn landscape, the union, founded by Jackson Miribu, provides youth healthy alternatives to daily Ugandan struggle through skateboarding. In a country torn by two decades of civil conflict where children make up a large section of the casualties, these kids are building a tangible alternative as well as a social center were orphans, and members of opposing tribes can come together over skating. In future months the union hopes to expand their park & to build an adjacent school & social center your purchase will allow them to do that. Learn more at here. This shirt is part of the 50/50 benefit t-shirt series and is designed produced and distributed by Sparrow Media.
