Skateboards For Hope


Skateboards For Hope invites you to be part of the sharing community where you can donate your time, funds or used skateboards to underprivileged youth. Your donation impacts a child's life directly by providing access to education, leadership programs, entrepreneurship and friendship. It's pretty cool and we hope it will inspire you. "The idea of giving a child something like a skateboard to encourage them to take risks, become problem solvers, and build a community of friends with similar interests in an activity they might not have been exposed to otherwise is something we try to achieve with help from donors like you. It’s even more viral now during the COVID-19 pandemic.” Our story started in Cuba 15 years ago when Founder, Betty Esperanza gifted her skateboard to a young boy who would later become the number 1 skateboarder in Cuba. This random gift of kindness has created a skateboard community worldwide where used skateboards are collected, recycled and then donated to youth to start leadership and entrepreneurial projects to break the cycle of poverty. Watch our TEDx to learn more about how skateboards can give hope and break the cycle of poverty.
