Harold Hunter Foundation – 2013 Skate Camp Scholarship Fund HHF
Hello everyone,
As you may or may not know, I am one of the Advisory Board Members of a charity in honor of our dearly loved and sorely missed brother, the renowned and ubiquitous professional skateboarder, actor, and all around awesome guy, Mr. Harold Hunter.
The idea behind the ‘Harold Hunter Foundation’ (or HHF) is simple. To give the literally lifesaving gift of skateboarding to as many underprivileged New York City kids as possible.
We have just set up an new donation site in an effort to brig even MORE kids to the world famous Woodward Skateboard Camp this August (yeah, THIS August) than ever before. We have 30 days to raise $10,000. If we don’t reach our goal by August 7th, we won’t get to keep any of the money pledged.
If you would, please take five minutes out of your busy schedule, watch the video, and consider being a part of the small but wonderful thing we accomplish every year through the HHF.
Thank you for you time and I thank you all in advance.
Michael A. Cohen
