Empowering at-risk youth through education and skateboarding
Social Skateboarding Grants x Peanuts
With Peanuts by Charles M. SCHULZ
During the Apollo missions of the 1960s, Charles M. Schulz gave NASA permission to use Snoopy on the Agency’s spaceflight safety materials. In the 50 years since, Snoopy has appeared on NASA safety posters, stickers, and has even flown to space as the Silver Snoopy pin – one the of the highest forms of recognition a NASA employee can receive. Now Peanuts and NASA have entered into a Space Act Agreement, to work together to bring the joys of space exploration and STEM into the lives of the next generation. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, The Skateroom and Peanuts have come together to pay tribute to the “dress rehearsal” mission that allowed mankind to land on the moon: Apollo 10.
To raise funds for social skateboarding projects benefiting at-risk youth, The Skateroom and Peanuts bring you 6 Snoopy- and Apollo- theme art decks. Through the sales of these editions, we apply our 5:25 business model – 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit, whichever amount is greater – to raising funds for tailor-suited grants to be allocated based on the needs of individual social projects.
Project information will be updated when grants are allocated. Stay tuned!
“This partnership combines the best of all worlds—Snoopy + sport + art + benefitting young people around the world—and my dad would have enthusiastically approved.” Jill Schulz, daughter of Charles M. Schulz
