This past weekend, Elemental Awareness and Element flew out to Virginia to team up with Coastal Edge to donate shoes and skateboards to kids in need. Through the changing lives through skateboarding program, a portion of the shoe sales goes to helping us get gear into the hands of the kids who need them.

Elemental Awareness Foundation (EA) teamed up with the Ethiopian Skateboard Park Project (ESPP) in their efforts to teach kids how to skateboard in Ethiopia. Through Element’s Changing lives through skateboarding program, EA was able to donate shoes and boards to help the ESPP accomplish their goals. They recently made a trip out to Ethiopia to visit the kids and build some ramps. The ultimate goal of the project is to build a Skate Park and community center in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.

A portion of proceeds from all shoes and select skateboards benefit the Elemental Awareness Foundation. When you buy Element, you are helping make programs like this possible.
Elemental Awareness has supported Nathan Gray in his ventures to take skateboarding to the children of India, Israel, Jordan and now Tunisia. . PUSH Tunisia is a skateboard ‘artivism’ project which features a multi-national group of skateboarders, street artists, and volunteers on a trip to Tunisia, eleven months after the revolution. Now in the final stages of the project, he and his organization, the bedouins, need your help. CLICK HERE to find out more about the project and how you can help.
Element Advocates Mike Kershnar and Todd Francis were there to help the kids create their very own hand painted board which they were able to keep. Afterward, Element team riders Nyjah Huston, Mark Appleyard, and Ray Barbee skated with kids at the recently built skatepark.
