Our goal is to raise money to provide tablets and wifi hotspots to local students that are being denied an education because they do not have access to the technology required to participate in their virtual classes.
We will be giving away 1 pair each of the Union LA x Air Jordan 4 "Off Noir", Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R1 "Peace Be The Journey", and Off White x Air Jordan 5 "Sail" to raise funds to purchase the devices required to support distance learning for local students in need.
We are once again partnering with the United Way to benefit kids in our community with the Lapstone & Hammer x United Way "Step Up for Student Access" Fundraiser.
As we have done with past Lapstone Initiatives, we are seeking to harness the hype of three of the hottest releases of the year to create real change in our community. We feel it is our duty to activate much needed resources to students in Philadelphia and its surrounding communities that are in need of assistance.

Our goal is to purchase 100 devices - 50 Chromebooks/tablets and 50 T-Mobile wireless hotspots (with a one year subscription) - by raising $20,000.
Principal Laurena Tolson of Add B. Anderson elementary school in Philadelphia has told us that while the Philadelphia Public School system has given tablets to most of the students, many do not have internet access to actually use them. In partnership with United Way we have also found many families that don't even have devices to use for virtual school. Therefore we hope to purchase 50 T-Mobile hotspots for our continuing support of Add B. Anderson School, and 50 Chromebook devices in support of United Way's Student Help Hotline.
This is a fantastic opportunity to transcend our collective love of sneakers and the culture, and bring the sneaker community together to motivate, inspire and affect real change in our world.
