Shepard Fairey has donated a “Flag” HPM skate deck to a 100% charity
auction benefiting Skateistan, the first Afghan skateboard school.
Skateistan is a school in Kabul where about 400 kids, boys and girls, “rich”
and poor – skate on a daily basis and learn things like photography,
carpentry, drama, English and much much more.
b-sm = 300x250; sm > none;

The school was established in 2008 and built a professional indoor

skateboard park in 2009 – with the help of the fundraisers in Denmark.

Now in 2011 we are collecting money so that Skateistan can expand and build an outdoor

facility for the kids so they can skate even when the school is not open.”
You can bid on Shepard’s deck HERE and see the other decks up for grabs HERE.
