Longboarding for Peace

Michael Brooke, has created a movement, which he hopes one day will help bring joy and happiness to some of the most volatile and dangerous areas around the world. Whether it's the ongoing geopolitical war in the Middle East or if it's the rough neighborhoods of Houston, Texas, he has found a way to help kids in these communities become more confident, and has given them an opportunity they would not otherwise have.

The foundation is called Longboarding for Peace. Michael first started off by flying to Israel with $10000 worth of gear for the local children to use. The major goal here was to help show this younger generation within these areas that there was no differences between Arabs, and Israelis and that we are all human beings and we should all get along. By having everyone working together, without the bias of religion, the children eventually learned to balance and also roll around on these boards, all with each other's help. Michael saw this amazing transformation and ever since has been on a path, sharing the importance of harmony and understanding, throughout the entire world. By giving these types of opportunities to less fortunate people around the world, Micheal hopes to decrease the amount of pain and suffering that goes unseen in parts of the world.

This is just one of many missions that Michael Brooke has accomplished recently, and we just want to say that we couldn't be happier to be involved with such an amazing cause. Longboarding for peace is only possible from donations so please go show them some support and e go follow them on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

 Here is a manifesto from the man himself.
Longboarding for Peace is a movement forward.
We embody the spirit of all that is good and pure about Longboarding.
We empower people to step on, step up and make great things happen in their communities.
We strive to increase joy and happiness, and decrease pain and suffering.
Our goal is to build a global Peace Army of 50,000 people.
Each of us will commit at least one act of kindness every single day.
This will generate over 20 million acts of kindness per year.
Through kindness, camaraderie and the true spirit of Longboarding,
we'll make the world a better place.
