ASB MAGAZINE: Sesame Street’s most beloved characters are now featured on Globe premium skateboards: Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie and Count von Count, Big Bird and Elmo.  All the decks in this collector series use Globe’s proprietary Resin-7 construction, with holographic prism foil, transparent and pearlescent ink details, and art plucked from the Sesame Street archives. As part of the collaboration, Globe is supporting The Sesame Street Yellow Feather Fund, which brings educational materials to children in need around the world, helping them grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.

 

MORE ABOUT THE SESAME STREET YELLOW FEATHER FUND:

In 1969, Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization, launched Sesame Street to provide better
educational opportunities for disadvantaged children. Using the power of media and its beloved characters,
Sesame Street reaches little learners at the earliest time in their development and sets them on a positive path
for life. Sesame Workshop’s initiatives, funded in part through The Sesame Street Yellow Feather Fund, include:

  • Partnering with the International Rescue Committee to bring early education directly to young refugees
    in the Syrian response region.
  • Promoting girls’ empowerment around the world, with the help of engaging girl Muppets like Zari in
    Afghanistan and Chamki in India.
  • Increasing acceptance and understanding of autism through the ‘Sesame Street and Autism: See
    Amazing in All Children’ initiative.

MORE ABOUT GLOBE:
For the riders of concrete, oceans, and mountains – modern explorers of the Globe. After ten years of design,
production, and distribution of third party brands in Australia, the Hill Brothers created a global boardsports
brand of their own. First with shoes for skaters and surfers in the mid 1990s and then with apparel and
skateboards for the broader market. Today, the same crew of skaters, surfers, and snowboarders that started
the Globe brand have grown to an international network of designers and riders that are united by boardsports,
street culture, media, design, and film.
