Help Stolen. Recover

Donation protected
On the evening of May 30, 2020, Stolen. Skate Shop, owned by Greensboro resident John Martin, was impacted during escalated protests in support of justice for George Floyd.  John and Stolen. are supporters of racial equality and justice and are devastated by this catastrophic loss of livelihood.  Damages include the loss over half of his merchandise and many irreplaceable items from his personal collection, broken display cases and windows, stolen electronics, and more. The financial loss is devastating to a local business owner who was already affected by the pandemic.  Anyone who knows John loves him.  And to know John is to knows of his commitment to support and uplift the skate community and the Greensboro community as a whole.  Now it is time for our community to give back. John has been  adamant about setting the goal amount low at $5,000.00 (because that’s the kind of guy John is) but rest assured that $5,000.00 is a drop in the bucket for all of the loss incurred.  Please consider making a donation of even $1 to help keep Stolen. alive.

If you aren’t able to contribute monetarily, please consider donating your time or skills to an event being organized by Shari Blades to raise more money for John and the affected community.  Items already donated include tattooing, lawn care, car detailing, babysitting, crafts, and more.  Please contact [email redacted] for more information.
