When Skateistan began in 2008, it was no more than a few girls on skateboards in Kabul, Afghanistan and a dream of Australian Founder, Oliver Percovich. 10 years later and it has grown into an award-winning organization with four Skate Schools in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa empowering over 2,000 active students, 50% of which are girls. Skateistan’s programs, which center around skateboarding, education and community engagement, are available free of charge to children aged 5-17 from all economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds and specifically focus on girls, children living with disabilities and low-income youth.

CHPO x Inside Light watch

This year, we’re collaborating with photographer Sevilay Maria and The Inside Light, a photography project for children and young people living in refugee camps. Together we’ve designed a watch, where all profits will be donated to the Inside Light. To promote the release of the watch and raise awareness about the initiative, we hosted a photo exhibition in Stockholm, September 20th. The exhibition consisted of photos from the refugee camps in Lesvos taken by both Sevilay Maria and the children who live in the camps.

Thank you to everyone who came to the event and supported the project by donations or purchasing watches and prints! Buy the watch here!

Lucy Adams in SKATEISM #2

Lucy Adams is one of the UK’s most recognisable skateboarders. As a key player, not just in female-skateboarding circles, but as part of Skateboard England – who stepped in to organise 2020’s Team GB – she’s seen the development of British skateboarding first-hand. With twenty-one years on a board, no discussion on the UK scene would be complete without Lucy’s perspective. SKATEISM tracked her down to see what went in to her two-decade-long career in skateboarding and where she sees herself going next.”

Caroline Degardh in Stockholm

Sausages, hot dogs, or plain and simple korv in Swedish, has no religion. It has no gender, it has no social status and it has no rules. It can take different shapes and colors and can be made out of everything from meat to vegetables, or even fruit. A win-win for all of us!

Or nearly all. Every year 10 000 men in Sweden gets diagnosed with prostate cancer. It’s the most common form of cancer in our country and currently, there’s nearly 100 000 people living with the diagnose. With the #korvlover watch, Post Details and CHPO Brand would like to spread awareness on the disease and the research surrounding it. With every sale, a donation towards The Swedish Prostate Cancer Federation is made.

Korvlovers, it’s time to save a wiener! Buy the watch here!
