If there’s any initiative to get around as the year wraps up, it’s Vans’ annual Checkerboard Day. It’s the shoe and apparel brand’s largest philanthropic event, and it donates over $1 million to 16 charities across the globe, with a specific focus on those regional organisations involved in revitalising public spaces.
To celebrate, we hosted a stack of athletes, artists, models and other friends of LWA at our office for a day full of banter, drinks and of course, checkerboard print. Chatting about the Vans initiative and never missing a photo-op of the brand’s staple footwear, the coming-together of various creatives was a perfect reflection of Vans’ checkerboard mission.
