Why We Give

Currently, in the Bay Area, there are many high-quality, 2-5 day, environmental education programs in which thousands of students in grades 3-6 are participating every year. Unfortunately, many students and/or schools in the Bay Area cannot afford to pay for these programs. Disadvantaged students miss out on a myriad of important educational and developmental experiences. Those same experiences are the birthright of their middle-class peers. This lack of exposure means that the low-income, inner-city children tend to lack an expansive context for building their hopes, dreams and aspirations. We believe these are the very children who need experiences like Vida Verde the most!

The entire Vida Verde budget comes from donations from individuals and grants from foundations. Which brings us to how and why TUC gives. We are in full swing in our program to support Vida Verde. With each purchase of a V V PlyPrint we give a portion directly to the program. That means you can help send a child to camp at the same time as hanging an amazing PlyPrint on your wall.

Choose from two beautiful designs, whether you are a trekker or a water lover, each one is inspiring.
