What is Give Tanks... Give Tanks are smiling tanktops of awesome things to 'give tanks' for, reminding everyone to 'be tankful' for the beautiful, little things in life, with 25% of profits going towards community-based development programs in overlooked communities around the world.
Current Project ~ BMX/Skate Park for the Arts... In partnership with The Phoenix Foundation, a registered 501 (c)3 youth empowerment organization, we have developed a plan for the construction of a public BMX/Skate park for at-risk youth in Ciudad Sandino, Nicaragua. This park will be the cities first public BMX park, operated by Phoenix, with sustainable income from the park used to help subsidize free art programs for local girls and boys at Phoenix. Income generated from this park through regional competitions, equipment rentals, and the sale of homegrown fruits and vegetables will help subsidize start-up Phoenix Art Programs such as dance music, painting and crafts.
Meet our Partner... Phoenix Foundation is a youth empowerment organization in Ciudad Sandino. With core values centered on love, compassion, and respect, Phoenix offers much needed free, before & after school, programs that teach kids valuable life skills, personal values, and prevention methods.
Why this Park is important... This park would achieve giving kids a safe, clean place to practice two of the most booming sports in Latin America that are healthy for your body and mind. Having a safe place to practice a passion promotes personal responsibility & has the potential to save kids from the streets. Art Programs started from this park will offer courses not taught in public school. A child's life can be transformed forever if she discovers her voice produces beautiful harmonies, or if you give him access to a paintbrush&canvas or pen&paper. They gain a feeling of confidence, self-sufficiency, & potential income. We will be laying the foundations for the city's girls and boys to discover their talents, practice their passions, and add a significant measure of improvement into their lives. All of their personal development and empowerment comes from within
