The Share The Stoke Foundation, Inc. is a charitable organization based in South Florida and is dedicated to donating surfboards to kids and teenagers in need in an effort to keep them off the street and in the water. Around the world, coastal towns are filled with kids who yearn for the possibility to stand on a board in the water but simply do not have the resources to make that happen. The Share The Stoke Foundation is committed to creating new possibilities for kids and teenagers globally to support them in having their dreams of surfing come true.
Share The Stoke Foundation got started when the founder, Kelly Kingston, had an old used surfboard she was trying to sell on Craigslist. It was not selling so she decided that because it was the holiday season she would list it as "free" to a kid who sent her an email telling her why they thought they deserved it. Kelly was bombarded with emails.
The foundation grew from there. In the first year Kelly purchased three more boards to give away. The second year was much bigger giving away 20 boards and stoking out a bunch of kids. The vision grew from here and in year three Kelly applied for a formal 501c3 non-profit status. In February 2011 501c3 status was granted.
