Vans, the global leader in skateboarding for over 50 years and world-renowned, iconic South African skater, Yann Horowitz, celebrate Vans’ partnership with Skateistan, the award-winning international non-profit organization which empowers youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, South Africa and supports other social skate projects around the world.
With this campaign, Vans reminds fans that skateboarding would not be where it is today without the strength of community. In a new video campaign titled “Where It Starts”, Vans and Skateistan zero in on what makes skateboarding so special—the streets, skateparks, backyard pools and communities that built skateboarding from the ground up. In this segment, Yann shares his own experience, and the importance of the skate community to him.
Now through September, Vans will donate $10 USD from every pair of Vans Custom Skate Classics purchased from Vans on https://www.vans.com/customs from June 21 to August 30, 2021 – up to US$200k – to Tides Foundation in support of Skateistan. Just like Yann Horowitz designed his own pair, inspired by the color RED, which to him represents life, love, courage and health. Consumers can create their own unique pair of Vans Skate Classics now to support skateboarding and the Skateistan organization.
