Place to Donate Old Boards/Gear
« on: August 15, 2021, 10:11:16 AM »
Does anyone know of an organization or non profit which I can donate boards and other gear to? I wanted to ship this stuff to some skaters I met in Kenya but the shipping was outrageous, plus I think there is some kind of import tax. Would love to get this stuff in the hands of kids who really need it. I am located in the US. Thanks

I live in Portland and I give stuff to a Program called: Project Education, Art and Recreation. https://www.pearmentor.org

They give out boards to homeless and marginalized youth. They always need trucks as that's the hardest thing to come by.

Iím doing a nonprofit work called boards not bombs recyclery where youíve got used gear weíll sand and reassemble shit boards to at least rideable turds and give them away.

Iíve been doing this on my own budget and at garage sale pawn shops and Craigslist hunks of shit with 4 wheels.

Promise me you wonít tell anyone, this is really fucked up and itís hard to explain to people, but I know youíre safe and wonít judge me.

I list my stuff on Craigslist, things I know kids will like.  Baker, thunders, enjoiÖ. And I connect with them.  If they are an age I like, I send them the google earth data for the bush I put them in.

The gear is always in good shape and I never charge them.  No contact, no names, no strings attached.  I just leave the gear in the bush.  I just like to hang out with my binoculars and watch and make sure they get it.  This is very important to me.

I know Iím not doing anything illegal and no one gets hurt.  Itís just something I like doing but people never understand.  Just had to get that off my chest.  Thanks for being a friend.
