Our children love Inline Skating!
The Children absolutely love skating and would spend all day every day at the sports hall if they could! source: Inline Skating
This week we realised that most of our Skates, helmets and protectors are broken and don’t really work at all.
We only have two intact helmets. All the other helmets have broken straps, the padding is missing or the shell is cracked and broken.
We really need new Inline skates as we hardly have any left which work properly. Whats more we don’t have big enough skates to fit the older children.
Lots of the protectors are broken: the velcro doesnt hold, the elastic is stretched or torn so that we have to tie them up with knots.
We want to continue to take the children skating and since the safety of every child is our top priority we are really hoping that Santa will be kind and bring us some new Skates for Christmas!
We would be really grateful for any donations towards new Inline Skates. We will use your donations to buy 6 x 2PM SPORTS Adjustable Inline-Skates ($95 each ) + 6 Easy Living Protection-Sets ($44 each) or similar..
In total we want to raise $834 / 735€ to replace some of our Inline Kit! You can help us reach our target by making an online donation with the form below! THANK YOU!

Personal Delivery & Up-Cycling
Due to local taxes the prices of imported electronic goods in Ecuador are between 30-100% more expensive than in Europe and the US! If you would like to deliver one or more of the listed items to us in person we would be delighted to welcome you in Mindo! Please contact us to arrange your visit.
Alternatively if you have any similar serviceable Inline Kit that is gathering dust in an attic or basement please come to Mindo and donate them to us in person! As a thank you we’ll be happy to perform our favourite songs for you! We’ll be happy to take you down to the local sports hall for a skatinf session! Perhaps you can play us and teach us some of your own favourite songs!
