Changing perspectives and lives is what Uncle Skate prides itself on.
As one the nation’s fastest upcoming donor of skateboards, Uncle Skate creates a sense of awareness to those less fortunate around the world. We have developed crucial components that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people who receive these skateboards.Click here to go back to the home page to see some of these kids who have received a skateboard from Uncle Skate.
By collecting and donating skateboards away, Uncle Skate has created pillars that this non-profit follows:
• Allow children in poverished countries to enjoy the creative sport of skateboarding.
• Build self-esteem and character through self-confidence.
• Create leaders for tomorrow and help kids stay away from drugs and alcohol.
Uncle Skate has created its own philosophy and vision of what it would like to see in the future.
A study shows that kids who participate in any type of sport are less likely to consume alcohol, get addicted to drugs, and even less likely to commit a criminal act. That being said, the more skateboards given out the better chance we have with the future of our global society.
The mission of Lost Our Home Pet Foundation is to be a resource for real estate professionals and other members of the community who discover an abandoned pet, and to provide options for pet owners faced with difficult economic circumstances while promoting the spaying and neutering of pets.
