We’ll be collecting equipment donations at champs to support leagues in Lima, Peru and Kyoto, Japan.
Derby Without Borders seeks to increase accessibility in Roller Derby. The project's most recent campaigns have been to collect and send used and new equipment donations to leagues in regions where it is difficult to acquire-including Buenos Aires, Argentina, Johannesburg, South Africa, Cairo, Egypt, Hong Kong, and Beirut, Lebanon. DWB has also raised funds on behalf of Sailor City and 2x4 Roller Derby both in Buenos Aires to offset travel costs for playoffs in A Coruña, Spain.”
