The Build Project: Somerville DIY
The idea behind #TheBuildProject
was to kick start DIY projects worldwide by getting people excited and motivated to build their local skate scenes. The Somerville DIY
association was formed by the civic-minded local skaters in Somerville, MA, complete with a President, Treasurer and Legal representative, to help Max Hesh Skate Shop
and the City of Somerville build legitimate DIY spots. Not satisfied with just one bucket
they made their own to spread around at local businesses to collect donations, as well as starting a GoFundMe
account for online donations. Amazing work guys, lets build!
