Confession: We’ve been HUGE fans of Ryan Sheckler ever since Life of Ryan hit the MTV airwaves. He is an awesome skater and a total hottie and also happens to be one of the most charitable athletes out there. Giving back to young people and injured athletes, Shecks created the Sheckler Foundation, which encourages and empowers his San Clemente, California, community to “be the change they want to see.”
It takes a compassionate soul to give so much back, especially at such a young age! At a mere 24 years old, Ryan has built an impressive empire. Now, in addition to pro skateboarding, traveling the world, and looking out for kids and athletes, Ryan’s showing off his big heart for animals as the latest ambassador for peta2’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign.
Every year, millions of animals—including rabbits, foxes, minks, and even cats and dogs—are kept in cramped, filthy cages in unbearable conditions before being killed in horrific ways in the fur industry.
#Swoon. Am I right?
