Today we're saying a huge thank you to the team at Google in Dublin for their amazing fundraising efforts! Last year they raised an incredible $10,000 by holding a Tony Hawk Pro Skater competition - donations were generously matched by the company as part of their Giving Week.

Our most recent watch collaboration with @CHPObrand is called Dah Sal, and it means 10 years in Dari, a language widely spoken in Afghanistan. The watch is suitable for surfing, swimming and other water sports (except for diving) and on top of that, 100% of profits from each watch will support us to continue empowering children around the world through skateboarding and education. #Shop via link in bio! #Skateistan #shoptodonate #watch #donation #ngo
