Mission: To bring roller derby to every derby skater, volunteer, and fan!

We sincerely thank everyone who made a purchase yesterday. On your behalf, we were able to donate to 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers.
And for those who are waiting on older orders, we are working hard to fulfill orders as fast as possible.

[06/05/20]   Because of the amazing people in the roller skating community, we were able to donate $1000 today.
We are keeping it going, so spread the word. Today’s sales will also be donated. We are taking suggestions on where to donate next. About todays donations: We chose to donate to the family of Breonna Taylor. Today is her birthday. She should be turning 27. She was an essential worker, murdered by police in her own home in Louisville, KY. The cops issued a no-knock warrant at the wrong apartment, looking for someone they already had in custody. We urge you to sign the petition calling for charges against the officers that murdered her.
We also donated to the Louisville Community Bail Fund. The fund is organized by Black Lives Matter Louisville.

Thank you to everyone who made a purchase yesterday. Because of you, we were able to donate $225 to Black Visions Collective to fight
racial injustice and to the memorial fund of Tony McDade, a Black LGBTQ man who was killed by police last week.
We will also be donating all sales from today and tomorrow to other organizations. Our link in bio is currently set to resources, so please go to to make a purchase and we will
donate 100% of each sale. Thank you!

I put this #skatepallette together but as I tried to gather more items to add, nothing was as important as #blacklivesmatter

Give to Someone Who Has Given So Much organized by Greg Black Stormy Beck

It’s been heartwarming to hear everyone share their experiences knowing Bonnie personally or how her videos and mp3s helped them. I had the pleasure of getting to know her during our time with the LA Derby Dolls; we’d carpool to practice because I was the halfway point on her long commute. She’d tell my unassertive ass to “unleash the beast”, like, all the time. She was a dear friend to us at Blood & Thunder from the very start. When we started our training camps program, she was right there, ready to go. Her PMA was inspiring. Many have called her a derby legend, and that is a fact. I’m glad she is getting so much support from the community that treasures her so much. If you can donate, please do. If you already have, then thank you so much. It’s not easy to ask for help. - Robin Graves You may have known Bonnie D. Stroir:Bonnie is a powerful, badass, force o… Greg Black Stormy Beck needs your support for Give to Someone Who Has Given So Much

Fat Girl Has Moxi


Things I’ve observed as an “Essential Worker”
They claim millennials ruin everything, yet only my generation came in and followed cdc regulations and older people mostly called us ridiculous. One said this was an overreaction like AIDS in the ‘80s. I wanted to punch her.
I wore lace gloves as a joke, because I keep seeing people wearing gloves and not using them right. It seems to give a false sense of security to people. I’ve seen gloved hands touching faces, multiple items, money, phones, then jump in their car. If you aren’t constantly changing them you’re still cross contaminating everything. Just wash your damn hands.
I wore my American scarf to remind you that America is not the best country. I’m still a proud American though. How about you f**king vote this year? Now that you watch the news.
Stop being so mean. I get we’re all on edge. Do not take it out on those trying to serve you. People’s true colors are coming out. We know what companies to support and which to drop. Who treating their workers great and who stretched them thin.
I never though making lattes and blenders would make me essential during a pandemic. I found myself upset when people cane in to risk getting sick for a sugary drink. Then part of me understood their need for routine and normalcy.
I’m grateful to have a job, but more grateful to be at home. My store is temporarily closed... they say maybe two weeks. The fear of the unknown is a knot in my stomach, growing daily.
From an essential workers POV, follow these rules to help them not hate their job so much:
1. Only go if it’s actually essential and load up for at least a weeks worth.
2. Do not browse, have a list and get in and out of there please.
3. Stay 6ft away from one another AND the workers! You do not need to lean over the counter to repeat your 🤦🏽‍♀️
4. Please be kind. Maybe say thank you? We didn’t know that scanning groceries, making lattes, and flipping hamburgers would be just as essential as emergence personnel.
4. Most of us make minimum wage, have no vacation days, no health care. So maybe pay attention to politics and remember that when you vote.

New shirts at Just a little fun one to commemorate these times when roller derby is on hold, skating in public with friends is a no-no and everyone is coming together online to share their love for skating while staying home! (Proceeds go to helping an out-of-work friend who is near and dear to us).
