Charity One: STOKED
Asymbol newly supports nonprofit STOKED!Founder Steve Larosiliere, along with Co-founder Sal Masekela, believed that the courage and perseverance needed to learn action sports would be an ideal way to teach those life skills to at-risk and disadvantaged youth. Combining life lessons with the power of mentoring and a supportive community, Stoked Mentoring was born. Through Stoked, teens gain a supportive, encouraging mentor along with a team of people determined to see them succeed. By introducing underprivileged youth to action sports, the very activities many of us were warned against, Stoked is now creating a positive environment and foundation for teens.
Charity Two: POW
Protect Our Winters (POW) is dedicated to reversing the global warming crisis by uniting the winter sports community and focusing our collective efforts towards a common goal. It was started in 2007 by pro snowboarder, Jeremy Jones who, during winter trips, witnessed first-hand the impact of climate change on our mountains, and decided to try to do something about it.
POW was founded on the idea that if we harness our collective energy and put forth a focused effort, the winter sports community can have a direct influence on reversing the damage that's been done and ensure that winters are here for generations behind us.
