Coletivo Skate Maré X JR     

With JR
Description

Coletivo Skate Maré is a volunteer-led grassroots movement that empowers the youth within its community through skateboarding. The collective provides classes with portable street obstacles to help kids develop their skills and confidence. Since 2015, the group has fought to bring stability in a community afflicted by an on-going drug war.

Through our collaboration with JR, we are donating 15% of the sales revenue to Coletivo Skate Maré, the funds will help construct a skate park with the help of Make Life Skate Life.

With a safe space to skate in the favela, the collective will increase its reach and impact 250 kids per week.
