Skate for Change describes themselves as “a local group of skaters committed to giving back to the low-income & homeless in Seattle”, but in my view they are way more than that. They are taking a proactive approach to community outreach and doing positive work in the community while doing something they love. They also have created an open framework for skaters to make a difference.
The Seattle crew was inspired by an effort that started in Lincoln, Nebraska. Check out this video for the complete story. If this video doesn’t move you, check your pulse…you’re probably dead.
