Although they are based in Florida and here in California we can’t just cruise by and drop off our old boards you can still support a great cause.
In 2008 founder Kelly Kingston decided to give away her old board to a teenager on Craigslist after unsuccessfully trying to sell it. She simply asked the kids to explain why they deserved it. She got a flood of responses and the non-profit Share the Stoke was born. Basically, they give away free boards to kids without cash. It’s a great way to turn them onto something good and keep them out of trouble.
If you have extra cash and want to help out, while you can’t stop by and drop off your board, they accept donations via their website. Check ‘em and feel good – http://sharethestokefoundation.com/
