Hello everybody !

Since the beginning of 2013 we are managing to preserve and maintain one of the biggest skatepark in de Benelux. We are open 6 out of 7 during autumn and winter and 5 out of 7 during spring and summer (because then there is less people who skate inside)

We are a non profit organisation that works with 7 volunteers and pay everything on our own. We are a social centre that keeps children from the street, educate from the bottom up, working wih schools from the area for their sportsdays, organising alternative concerts and skatecontests and many many more. All the events we organise with the goal to save some money for the organisation. Nobody gets a salary out of anything they do. So all of the administration, the cleaning , the garbage maintenance, rebuilding the skatepark and all the hours before and after opening that we work ... everything is done for the love for the skatepark.

Our fix costs every months are : 4500 for the rent + 500 euro KI every month + 690 euro electricity + 350 euro water + Sabam + Garbagebags + cleaningproducts + Insurance + phonecost + ...  All together we pay a fix cost off 7500 euro every month.

So now it's time to tell you why we need the money: Last year we suffered from the long summer and didn't get the money to pay the rent every month. So now we have to catch up for last year and pay a 1500 euro extra every month.. For us its not possible to do this on our own anymore. And because we dont receive any money from the city or the government, neither from any of the skatebrands, we have to do this another way.

We ask you to help us keeping this beautiful skatepark before the owner kicks us out off the building. We are looking for another place but we gonna need time to find a simular building to rebuild the skatepark. The owner lets us stay till the end off july only if we can pay all the rent in the meantime. So for us it's very important that we can do that. If we are not managing to pay the rent we only get 15 days to remove everything and stock the entire skatepark in some warehouse.. If we can pay the rent till the end of july then i can start breaking down the skatepark from beginning june till the end of july and start over again in a new place. We are searching everyday to a good place to rebuild the skatepark.

So please help us keep this skatepark. Wherever we have to go, we wanna keep the infrastructure so the skatepark can live on. Donate some money, help us keeping the kids safe when the weather is bad and give them a place where they can meet eachother.

We will not give up the fight !
