As you may remember, I'm taking part in a fundraiser for a really cool organization – Skateistan. They use skateboarding to incentivize boys and girls in Afghanistan to further their education…all the while enjoying “being a kid" in the face of violent conflict. The kids literally go to school for the chance to skateboard afterwards.
The auction is now open online for the skateboards. Here is a link if you want to bid on any of the wonderful skateboards that have been created by Seattle artists to raise money for the cause.
A note about the blog: I'm still figuring out the right pacing for how often to post. So I'm planning on just posting on Mondays and Wednesdays for a while to see how that goes.
