Getting in touch with nature is a current theme that Skateboards For Hope explores and encourages. Playing outside and syncing with nature has so many health benefits whether it’s in the middle of a forest or in an urban skatepark surrounded by shrubs and skinny palm trees. It’s why partnering with FURN SUPPLY CO makes so much sense. Skateboards For Hope’s Founder, Betty Esperanza stated they are proud to echo core values not only in skateboarding, sports or fashion but mostly holistic and organic ways that will inspire future generations to be more environmentally conscious.
Skateboards For Hope flourished into an organization that empowered youth to become leaders in their communities as well as spearheaded projects to break the cycle of poverty using skateboarding as a tool. Many entrepreneurial projects sprouted creating social and economical sustainability for young men and women in the poorest regions.
No matter where you are located geographically, skateboarders have no borders. Seen in photo below: Yojany Perez, of Cuba shreds the roof in his hometown of Buena Vista.
fern-weh, orig. German (n.)*
An ache for distant places; the craving for travel* The fern leaf is our sacred seal symbolizing our secret bond to those who long to explore distant places, and our sincere desire to serve humanity.
So if you have an ache for adventure or to do something that will empower others as well as ignite the spark within you. Look no further than your local community projects, shops and neighbourhoods.
It takes vision and boldness to empower communities with knowledge, healing and good vibes. Thanks to people like Jessy Jean Bart for his support to bring joy to kids using skateboarding and hope for a healthy lifestyle. You can learn more about Jessy on instagram: Click on the highlighted link.
