Greetings friends and family!

As you might know, funding for art and music in schools has been cut across the board. On Fruit Tree Tour, we bring a day long program, including an exciting and colorful performance that helps to inspire the youth about the environment, and our place in it!

During the performance we plant trees, play drums, and perform eco-hip hop. After the performance, we break into groups and let the children experience all of these things first hand, leaving a fruit orchard in our wake.

Many of the youth that we work with don't have access to fresh organic food, and after one day with Common Vision, there is a future of more fruit than they can eat!

I love empowering the youth to grow their own food, and to help them to create cleaner air in their cities.

I have been involved with Common Vision for 4 years, and now i am asking you to join me in this very important, very underfunded work. If you pledge $1 a mile, you can join me on my 3000 mile journey, and you can help ensure that Fruit Tree Tour stays on the road!

EVERY DONATION HELPS. From $5 to $3,000, whatever you can offer. Please take the time to invest in the youth, and the health of our planet. Thank you so much!
