Smile On Your Brother is a skate art auction to benefit Contributor, a Canadian initiative to donate skateboards to kids who can’t afford them. Looks like starting bid is $125 but hey, they’re completes! Featured board is by Devin Barrette. Auction runs between August 24th and October 25th, 2009.

Conceived by Mike Giles and Annie Lam and co-curated by Bob Kronbauer of clubmumble.com fame, “Smile On Your Brother” is an art show centered around the original shape of skateboards when they first hit mass production. This seemed the perfect canvas to launch the contributor campaign.
The idea behind not only the show, but also overall project is to hopefully inspire people to think about their first skateboard and what it meant to them. Bringing together contemporary artists both in, and affected by the skateboard industry to help raise funds to go towards the first goal of Contributor which is to donate 100 skateboards to disadvantaged youth across Canada in 2009/2010
