Penny for a Purpose – Ethiopia Skate X BB Bastidas
Penny Skateboards teamed up with Ethiopia Skate and artist BB Bastidas on an amazing project supporting the youth in Ethiopia and those in need. What transpired was an incredible trip to Ethiopia handing out skateboards, painting murals, and skating with the kids. Watch the video to check out the adventure…
Penny has always recognized the importance of supporting the youth of the world and giving back to those in need. We have supported many different organizations through the years whether it be local schools raising money to help make education affordable for all their students, supporting organizations dedicated to recycling worn out boards or providing skateboards for camps servicing at-risk kids in urban environments.
As part of our continued focus on giving back to the skate community, Penny has created “Penny For A Purpose”. The goal? To partner with global non-profits and iconic artists to bring awareness to the communities they impact, practically support projects they run and encourage hope through skateboarding with young people all over the world.
Our initial “Penny For A Purpose” project has us teamed up with Ethiopia Skate and Californian artist BB Bastidas. The result of this collaboration are two unique Penny completes that not only look amazing and ride great, but more importantly help support young kids in need.
