The Soul Roll is a human stunt to help canine mutts. On August 27th, 2018, I will set out on 500 mile skateboard ride from San Francisco to L.A. with one mission in mind: to use my skateboard to create a scene, make an impact, get attention for the cause, and generate buzz and raise funds for the Soul Mutt App. I’ll be making pit stops at shelters, educational events, doggy meetups, interviewing dog owners, and whatever else my eclectic mind can conjure up!
But the Soul Roll is way more than just a stunt. It’s about educating people, shelters, rescue and adoption agencies on how creating good content visually and writing animal descriptions that are positive and shareable can raise the permanent adoption rate of their animals and increase the quality of the dog’s lives. It’s about going around making good images, finding beta users, sharing the doggie transformations with you, and hopefully get some mutts adopted into their right home in the process.
I created the Soul Roll because I wanted to do things differently. I wanted to connect with people, one on one, who are doing the actual work of finding these dogs a home. I wanted to show them what the app can do for the animals in their shelters as well as have conversations about what they need and lack so I can build the best version of the Soul Mutt app for them -- all from my skateboard!
