Skateboard Donation #1 - The Ryan Wuttke

Skateboard Donation #1

The First Skateboard Donation

Yesterday, on a mild Sunday afternoon, before season's first significant snow flurries flew, we ventured down the Bitterroot to donate a skateboard to a little ripper in Stevensville, MT who dreams of writing code and designing video games. The board, named after its sponsor, Ryan Wuttke, features two rare creatures - the white lion and the giant squid. As I mentioned in a Facebook post, Ryan is an elusive creature himself and has an undeniably "brilliant heart." Although I asked for his donation over instant messenger I get the feeling that he agreed without hesitation. That's just the kind of guy Ryan is. He gives without questioning and is so positive and optimistic and so dang funny too. To be able to design a custom board for Ryan was a wonderful opportunity and then to donate it to such a deserving young skater...well, that's just icing on the cake.

So, here's to the first skateboard donation. Thank you Ryan for making it possible and I hope everyone gets a chance to recognize (and hug) all those lovely creatures in our lives that make it all such an amazing treat.
