Initiatives like @topskateshop #GiveTheGiftOfSkateboarding, That's why you should #ShopTheHood & Support #SmallBusiness #Ottawa

Once again I am moved by the efforts and giving spirit of small business and the people behind them. As if running a business isn't busy enough, but to then pull in your favours, and invest the time and effort to run a contest like Top of the World Skate & Snow Shop Give the Gift of Skateboarding contest just shows you how important small business is the a community!

This wonderful contest for Ottawa youth runs November 21st - December 19th, 2014. 
and in the words of the Top Team:

"We all know the amazing effect skateboarding can have on someone. It's hard to explain to someone who hasn't stepped on a skateboard what it can do to you. It is a gift that some of us were very lucky to receive at one point in our lives and that's why this Christmas, we've teamed up with the amazing people at Supra Distribution and DELUXE to help 6 deserving young people receive the gift of skateboarding.
In the form below, we're asking you to nominate somebody under the age of 16 that you think deserves a brand new complete setup courtesy of our friends at Supra and DLX as well as a prize pack from Top of the World this Christmas. In addition one lucky winner will be selected to receive a free week at Top’s annual summer skate camp. Once you've nominated this person, we'd like you to write us a short explanation of why you think this particular young person is deserving of this gift."
Do you know a deserving youth in the Ottawa area to nominate for this wonderful opportunity?
If so you will find the link for the nomination form below!

I can tell you from first hand experience how wonderful the staff at both Top of the World Skateshop and their Skatecamps counselors are!
