SkateXS Celebrates 2nd Annual Skateboard Team Giving Campaign

February 05, 2015

Over $1,000 contributed on behalf of the SkateXS youth skateboarding team members. 
As a small business SkateXS looks for thoughtful ways to thank the young athletes ranging in ages 5-12 that represent the SkateXS Skateboard team throughout the year. Our favorite “thank you” is absolutely our annual giving campaign. We ask each skater to select a charity of their choice and SkateXS makes a contribution on their behalf to that organization.
For the 2nd annual campaign SkateXS was able to contribute over $1,000 to an impressive collection of non-profit groups on behalf of these young skaters.
Each skater will also be thanked individually via social media acknowledging the contribution while raising further awareness of the skater’s selected charity.
We especially love this program as we look to our young team skaters as role models both on and off the skateboard. We expect our campaign to help foster a lifelong spirit of responsibility and giving that pays itself forward many times over. 
Our program wouldn’t be possible without the continuous support of the amazing kids, parents and grandparents we are so proud to have as our customers. We invite the whole SkateXS community to celebrate the continued success of the giving program.
