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. 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!
