I will be travelling to Palestine with 17 other people volunteering with the non-for-profit charity Skatepal. Watch the video below, read about the project and please consider donating! Thank you! More ...

Ok, so the folks over at Skatepal are creating an event called DesignBuildSkate which I am joining on the 17th of July until the 6th of September.  The aim of DesignBuildSkate is:

A project in which it is not only the aim to create skateparks, 
but also to create beautifully designed civic spaces that the
whole community can enjoy

After we manage to build the spaces, the group will be teaching skateboarding lessons for 8 weeks. There will be 3 skateparks built, in Zebabdeh, Nabi Saleh and Ramallah. There are 18 people in total travelling to Palestine. We will all live and work together over the 2 month period.

I am really looking forward to do this for so many reasons but primarily, I think it will be extremely rewarding for everyone involved, it will be a great chance to learn a new language and to participate in a completely new culture.

If you choose to donate I will be extremely grateful as you are helping not only myself but the entire group. The money will be directly going towards materials, as stated on the Skatepal website:

The SkatePAL group and its supporters will finance the 
construction/skate equipment costs and also provide the
majority of the labour

So, I hope to hit my goal and thank you for reading!
