When we’re not skating, we’re trying to bring a little happiness to underprivileged kids all over the country with our Rolling 4 Reading literacy program. Publishers and others donate new and slightly used children’s books, and we put them in our backpacks and bring them to the skatepark when we skate together.

After a good session, we roll around a neighborhood near the park on our skateboards and give the books to children we meet. You should see their eyes light up when they hear they can keep the books! The kids invariably stop what they’re doing; sit down; and read.  They sometimes ask good questions about skateboarding too!

You can help us with our Rolling 4 Reading program by purchasing some of the awesome swag we have for sale in the Skateboard Moms’ e-store. We have t-shirts, hats, mugs, mouse pads, our very own postage stamp and more!  The proceeds from your purchase support Rolling 4 Reading and our other charitable and educational programs.
