Little Ruler 2014 And Beyond!

Little-Ruler-Grafitti-LogoAfter a decade of serving our fans as a unique retail business, we decided to take a breather and focus on new opportunities, selling off our remaining inventory at the beginning of 2014. After much deliberation on where to go next, rather than selling Little Ruler we decided to take a different route that would help give back to causes in our community.  The new website will focus on sharing our favorite baby, toddler and kids clothing & gear finds from across the web. In many instances these stores will pay Little Ruler a referral fee if you buy a product though our links, in turn donating a significant portion of these commission to a specific charity each month.  Some that come to mind are Board Rescue, the Tony Hawk Foundation, the Sheckler Foundation, Johnny Kicks Cancer, or the Surfrider Foundation. We also plan to implement a voting system were YOU can cast your vote for which charity we donate the money to each month.  We currently have very limited resources here, but in the coming months we aim to build out a wide variety of one of a kind features on Little Ruler, and of course always keep you up to date on the latest and greatest young talent in skate, surf and snow! More to come here soon!
