After six years of entertaining the Howies team and passing friends, the powers that be at Howies have decided to auction off their mini ramp with all proceeds going to the amazing project that is Skateistan, giving kids in Afghanistan an opportunity to escape their daily lives through the outlet of skating.
Bidding’s already started over on eBay – the ramp is currently on £432.93 – and is set to end on Bank Holiday Monday. In addition to the ramp, the folks at Howies have also got together this attractive bundle for the winning bidder…
– A signed Mike Carroll Girl deck (7 7/8″) & bundle from Form Distribution
– A pair of shoes from Vans (well – a form to send away for your preferred size & style)
– A custom skateboard setup of your choice from Shiner Distribution
– A years subscription to Sidewalk / Kingpin magazines from Factory Media
– A hand-printed lino cut by Droog79
Whether the winning bid is £5 or £500, the ramp gets skated and some kids in Afghanistan going through a tough time might forget about their troubles for a while through the medium of skating.
