We Donate $5 For Every Set Sold
This holiday season, join Board Blazers' Skate 2 Donate campaign in partnering with leading celebrities, athletes, and influencers to support their favorite charities. For every set sold, Board Blazers will donate $5 to the cause of their choice. You skate, we donate.
This organization is important to me because:
"When an extremely tall young black man with an unusual accent and a middle- aged white woman sat down next to me at Starbucks, I hardly noticed. But, when she asked him “what are you doing this weekend?” and he answered, “I’m going to figure out how to use the washing machine,” I was instantly curious. I leaned over to introduce myself and learned he’d just arrived in the U.S. From there, a remarkable friendship was born.
I soon learned Claude was an orphan of the Rwandan genocide. Adopted by his aunt and uncle, they raised him and five children in a remote Rwandan village. After working for several years as a mountain gorilla tracker, Claude was awarded a full scholarship to come to America to study biology at Arizona State University.
After he spent the past two Christmases at our house, I finally committed to going to Africa to visit his family. It was an eye-opening adventure to journey down to Claude’s village to meet his family and experience his culture. Inspired by his story, our #Skate2Donate campaign will contribute a portion of Board Blazers 2017 holiday sales to Pipeline Worldwide, a charity founded by the woman with Claude at the coffee shop."

About the charity:
Pipeline Worldwide partners with local organizations in Uganda and Rwanda to dig wells to provide clean drinking water, build safe homes, and enable access to medical care in remote African villages.
The Skate 2 Donate campaign funds will go toward building homes for Batwa families in southern Rwanda. The Batwa people have historically endured systematic discrimination, ethnic violence, forced displacement, and were a target of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Today, they survive by subsistence farming and live in shockingly decrepit mud shacks, seen here, using beds and roofs made of leaves and sticks, and without electricity or running water.
Construction was started on duplex-style homes for the Batwa near their village of Mikamba, but the project has been abandoned due to lack of government funding. Supported by the Skate 2 Donate campaign, Pipeline Worldwide is now partnering with a local agency, CARSA, to complete the houses with floors, doors, windows, utilities, and basic furnishings. The village has elected four deserving families to move into the apartments. For the first time, they will have dry roofs, mattresses, locking doors, and most importantly, a home.
