In the past month we’ve been lucky to receive two packages of equipment via good people that were coming to Uganda and made room in their suitcases. Big thanks to Mr.Larry from Sydney, Australia and Ms. Ally from Abbostford, Canada for making space! And big thanks to the Charters in Sydney who donated the goods Mr.Larry carried, and Paul’s Boutique and The Fabulous Terrors in Vancouver for the goods that Ms.Ally carried. The goods came at a vital point, bearings and kingpins had been breaking, decks getting old. We put on one of the new habitat decks today and it was well received. Thanks!
We are happy to say that through the help of some good people in Australia and Dunlop we received 19 pairs of ‘volleys’ two weeks ago. The shoes have made a big difference and it was super cool to see some of our ‘flip-flop’ skaters make the transition to canvas and laces. All the kids were stoked.
Special thanks go to those in Australia that made it happen; Dunlop, Axel Moline, and Emily Pero. Also a big thank you to The Real Uganda, a local NGO which was good enough to receive the goods on our behalf. The directors of The Real Uganda have been a serious source of support and advice for us here. Check them out at http://www.therealuganda.com
