It’s as simple as….

Gather

The first step to a Skate for Change outing is to get your crew and donations together!

Skate

The next step is simple: Take the donations you have raised and skate with your friends, colleagues, and classmates to hand them out. If you can’t skate please donate to support our mission!

Give

Hand out them items you are skating with and sit down and get to know people. This is the best part. 🙂

What

 

During the month of May, (YOUR COMPANY NAME HERE) is teaming up with Skate for Change to take care of those on the streets. Homelessness is on the rise in major U.S. cities and some of the most needed items are simple hygiene items like socks, water, and soap. From May 1-31, we are challenging our network of misfits, artists, creatives, do-gooders, and skaters to grab their boards, bikes, and friends and go #SkateforChange in Omaha or donate and support the ones who do!

 

Who

 

Skaters, students, teachers, school staff, parents; everyone is invited to be a part of this!

Where

Streets and alleys across Omaha. Anywhere where people are forced to sleep on our streets.

Why
Because we believe three things:
  1. Everyone has Value
    1. Everyone deserves second chances, love, justice, and a friend. In this world of negativity, we swim upstream; speaking for the silent and standing for the broken.
  2. Leadership Means Action
    1. Its not about how many followers you have, your college degree, or how you look.Making a difference and being a leader is all about action. What did you do today to help others?
  3. It’s Simple
    1. Making a difference is as simple as taking whatever you love to do and using to help others. You don’t need matching shirts or community service hours to inspire you – you do it because it’s the right thing to do.

Safety
Make sure you have conversations with adults about places that are safe to skate and be in your city. Use discretion when approaching individuals and keep in mind that you are in their “home” and place they do life everyday. Show respect by asking from a distance if they could use hygiene items, and you will find that most are happy to receive them! We ask that you refrain from taking pictures and videos  directly of people on the streets. We understand there are often sensitivities around capturing people and moments. Use your discretion and please only post or send us content you are comfortable sending, or share quotes and stories intstead.
