Visit the featured tees page on redbubble at the moment and you may notice the following t-shirt from Skateistan.

A closer inspection reveals that Skateistan is Afghanistan’s first dedicated co-educational skateboarding school. Aussie skateboarders Oliver Percovich, Sharna Nolan and Travis Beard are providing free free skateboard tuition to Kabul kids with the belief that Skateboarding is a great platform for getting youth from different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds engaging with each other positively. It's also not a bad way to show the kids that westerners aren't all bad.

Skateistan’s mission is to build cross-cultural understanding and develop youth confidence, leadership and life skills. It's a pretty impressive cause and the tees don't look too shabby either so if you fancy getting behind them then get yourself a t-shirt. All proceeds go towards buying new boards and the plan to build a skate park in Kabul.
