Charitable Cause I'm Supporting

Grind For Life, Inc was founded in 2003, by life-long skateboarder Mike Rogers, after his second battle with sarcoma cancer. Mike's tumor was located behind his right eye and nasal cavity. He endured a 17 hour surgery a cranial-facial resection with a brain-lift, removal of his eye, cheekbone, and half of the roof of his mouth and some of his teeth. He beat cancer once as a pre-teen, and again 25 years later. Mike beat the odds and is a competitive skateboarder again.

The mission of the Grind For Life organization is to provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families when traveling long distances to doctors and hospitals. In addition, they educate and inspire these patients and families concerning cancer survival and recovery. Those who qualify may request assistance for travel and lodging expenses, meal, and personal needs.

Their ultimate goal with the organization is to have a couple of apartments near Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital in Manhattan, so people who are receiving treatment at the hospital can have their family near them. They want to be able to provide a comfortable place to stay, charge fees based on a sliding scale, provide support for those who are not accustomed to the city, and make a rough situation a little easier for those who travel long distances for treatment.

What The Project Needs

I'm doing this fundraising campaign because the project needs to raise 18.000 € for the publication, shipment, marketing of the printed book and to be able to give the campaign supporters (that's you hopefully!) something back for your donation. I also have chosen to work with a professional publisher ( Everbest Printing Co Ltd in Hongkong) who will print the copies of the book and deliver the high quality 300 page hardcover book. Here are the details:

- I will print (at least) 1000 copies of the book
- The book will be hardcover 11.8" x 11.8" in size
- Paper is 157 gsm matt artpaper China SPCo matt

Initial funds through this campaign will be used to fund the book print and shipment from Hongkong and the shipment of the book to early contributors and the skateboard photographers featured in the book.

Any extra funds raised will go to supporting the Grind For Life organization, the skateboard photographers involved in the project and to continue work on the dedicated United Skateboard Photography Project website to create new projects in the future supporting non-profit organizations.
