Harold Hunter Foundation
Airwalk and Already Famous are proud supporters of the Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF). HHF, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in New York City, uses skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills. The HHF Woodward Scholarship has been the organization’s cornerstone program since its inception in 2007. Every summer, HHF sends a group of kids from inner-city neighborhoods to attend the premier action sports training facility at Pennsylvania’s Camp Woodward. HHF campers are provided with all of the necessary skateboard gear, transportation and spending money they’ll need to shred. Since its inception, HHF has sent 34 kids to skate camp, and, in return, HHF campers are required to volunteer service hours in their local community.

Music For Relief
Music For Relief is a grassroots effort comprised of musicians, music industry professionals and fans who believe that together we can create positive change.
Established in 2005 to provide aid for those affected by the tsunami tragedy in South Asia, the idea for Music For Relief originated amongst the members of the band Linkin Park who wanted to do something to help the victims. The idea was that if they made a donation, and then asked their musician peers and their fans to make a donation as well, a huge impact could be made in assisting relief efforts. With this in mind, they started reaching out to others in the music community to get involved and became the founders of Music For Relief.
