Contributor is a traveling art show created by Mike Giles of Furni and Annie Lam, along with the help of Bob Kronbauer. Together they’ve gathered a huge crop of artists to decorate and design skateboards which will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder. With the money they raised plan on donating 100 skateboards to kinds in need across Canada. It’s a really interesting way to help out kids, especially for those whose skating is their main outlet in the world, though they may not have the cash, because skateboarding is not a cheap hobby.

The line-up of artists looks great as well, including Thomas Campbell, Parra, Matt Irving, UPSO, Jim Houser, Mike Perry, Todd Francis, Chris Pastras, Craig Metzger, Andy Jenkins, Nial McClelland, Supermundane, Jim Datz, Rita, Travis Millard, Mel Kadel and a ton more.
