Longboards For Charity: NEW ToeHead + Hai Poké Collab

Longboards For Charity: New ToeHead + Hai Poké Collab

“Roots”, acrylic and marker on bamboo longboard.

It’s a great day when you’re given a longboard deck to paint for a good cause. Recently, I have been approached by the owners of Columbus’ very own Hai Poké to do exactly that. Calling back to their roots as skateboarders themselves, owners Nile Woodson and Mico Cordero are finding ways to give back through the forces of local artists + the boarding culture. Longboards like mine will be on display at their brick and mortar shop and will be auctioned off during a charity benefit later next year.  I’m looking forward to seeing what comes of all this collaboration and am inspired by the fierce energy by these two tastemakers!

It’s a big weekend here in Columbus, OH. The NHL All-Star Game has come to town and Columbus is a willing host. With a trucked in 34-foot tall, 85-foot wide snow slide that is as fun as it sounds, national news coverage, and high society events planned for each night, it’s easy to see how the city is abuzz with high impact energy. The 8-10,000 out-of-towners estimated to trickle in over the weekend will have their fill of sports, events, and most importantly charitable benefits. I had the pleasure of participating at such an event Thursday night on behalf of the Columbus Blue Jacket Foundation to fight pediatric cancer.

The first thought that comes to mind when you hear NHL isn’t probably “cancer fighters”. However, the Columbus Blue Jacket Foundation has worked tirelessly to challenge this notion. Thursday night’s “The Crease” Speakeasy reportedly brought in over $600,000+ in aid. In addition, they teamed up with Nationwide Children’s Hospital for further impact. This included the purchase of one of my ToeHead illustration (painted live at the benefit) which will then be donated to the Nationwide Children’s Hospital as part of the atmosphere in their Family Resource Center. Please read on for more details and a slight tell-all about how this hits home for me.
