Skate Girls Tribe will be having a skate event, organized by DC Family and Youth Initiative, Supported by the The Tony Hawk Foundation and Queen B, and sponsored by sPACYcLOUd Fashion and accessories. The event will have fun skating, drinks and prizes from some of the sponsors.
Family and Youth Initiative is the only DC area organization focused exclusively on helping teens in foster care make lifelong connections with caring adults. We create enriching lifetime relationships for youth at risk of aging out of foster care. We match youth with host parents and mentors, and help them find adoptive families.
Many ignore the positive contributions skaters make to numerous communities. For example, Go Skateboarding Day is one of the biggest global skateboarding events directly linked to charities and is held every year in June. As skaters across the world gather to celebrate on June 21, 2013, they will also be raising money for local charities. It is a celebration of all the positive aspects of the sport. Skaters raised money for many organizations including the YMCA and Boys and Girls clubs. Professional skaters joined novices and fans to celebrate skateboarding. This Skate Girls Tribe event carries the same positive and philanthropic tone of compassion and care.
The Tony Hawk Foundation seeks to foster lasting improvements in society, with an emphasis on supporting and empowering youth. Through special events, grants, and technical assistance, the Foundation supports recreational programs with a focus on the creation of public skateboard parks in low-income communities. The Foundation favors programs that clearly demonstrate that funds received will produce tangible, ongoing, positive results.
Skate Girls Tribe was formed in the DC area to foster positive values and lifestyles for girls, to create a setting and healthy environment for girls to become empowered and mature, having an outlet to meet other girls in a constructive and encouraging manner.
Teaching dignity and respect for one’s self as well as for others, SGT promotes confidence and assertiveness, individuality and creativity, strength and dignity, all gathered together with a love for skateboarding. With a vigorous setting of play and sociality, SGT nurtures and sustains these values and goals. With these virtues in place, we believe that healthy and responsible choices will be made in their lives.
The tribe, created by DC-based sPACYcLOUd street and skate wear, is emblematic of the most powerful prayer in the Lakota Native American expression “Mitakuye Oyasin” which translates as we are all connected, so honor and respect all life.

QueenB recently started collaborating with sPACYcLOUd fashion and accessories, she states.
“I use the art of graphic design, painted canvas and up-cylced materials . . . From trash to reconstructed vintage, I work to create pieces that give ladies who love what I love the creative ability to own something yummy. It’s one-of-a-kind wearable art that’s fun and, of course, . . . fabulous. I’m honored and thrilled to create handmade bracelets specifically for the SpacyCloud line.” Her looks can be found at:
