Last month, a massive explosion in the Lebanese capital left at least 4000 people injured including over 100 people dead, which is believed to have been caused by 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate that wasn't properly stored in a warehouse near the area of impact. To show support for those that were affected, Carpet Company Skateboards has teamed up with Familia Skateboard Shop to raffle off rare Nike SB sneakers for charity.
Today, the skate brands announced the philanthropic raffle which is highlighted by the SB Dunk High "Skunk" (size 11) and the sample version of the SB Blazer Mid "Lebanon" (size 9). Both pairs are being raffled off with all proceeds being donated to the Impact Lebanon Disaster Relief fund.
Donated by Familia Skateshop's Steve Nesser, the "Skunk" SB Dunk High was limited to only 420 units. The designer of the "Lebanon" SB Blazer Mid, Rob Sissi, also donated his pair for charity. The sample was originally produced in 2007 and is a nod to the Middle Eastern country.
Raffle tickets will cost $10 each and will serve as one entry for the desired sneaker. It also doesn't appear that there's a limit to how many entries one can buy. To find out how you can get involved, click here.
