The SK8 PALS™ program was introduced to connect kids across borders through a traditional pen pal writing program. A kit provides a notebook, pen, 2 pencils, 2 postcards, 1 domestic and international stamp. SK8 PALS™ encourages education, meaningful friendships, and a portal to dream.
After the volunteers from Lipstick Skateboards spent time with Brazilian kids they wanted to stay in touch and connect the kids to each other and with pairs from other countries and realities. SK8 PALS™ was a way to sustain both and grow together over 5,000+ miles apart.
Skateboarding and writing are both creative outlets for kids with outcomes that are unsung and immeasurable!
