Diversity and Inclusion are at the forefront of what snkrbox by Jason Burke represents. My brand not only encapsulates self-expression and individuality, but it helps to change lives through the spirit and power of sports, the removal of barriers to communication and justice for all members of our community. For each snkrbox item purchased, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to three relevant not- for-profit organizations that I believe serve and strengthen our global community every day.
Canadian Hearing Society
The Canadian Hearing Society is the leading provider of services, products and information that remove barriers to communication, advance hearing health and promote equity for people who are culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.
Donations made to the Canadian Hearing Society ensure that people who are culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing, as well as the hearing people around them continue to live productive, engaged, independent lives.
MLSE Foundation is committed to improving the lives of youth by building facilities and giving to sustainable programs. Donations made to MLSE Foundation help provide access to sport and sport opportunities for kids of all abilities. Since 2009 the MLSE Foundation has invested more than $15 Million into our community and impacted the lives of over 125,000 youth. Support from SNKRBOX, will go towards basketball and soccer programs that MLSE Foundation helps fund.
Urban Alliance on Race Relations
Formed in 1975 by a group of concerned Toronto citizens, the Urban Alliance on Race Relations is a non-profit charitable organization that works primarily and proactively with the community, public and private sectors to provide educational programs and research, aimed at addressing racism in society.
Donations made to the Urban Alliance are used to support ongoing advocacy addressing issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
