Seeding a community
We use the money we raise to invest in grassroots projects by people who seek to create a more compassionate world. Every day of the year, our network selects a new project that will receive $1,000 in seed funding. As that project blossoms, leaders can access capacity-building support, encouragement, and connectivity with others. Through these efforts, we seed a vibrant community of global changemakers who seek to spread compassion in the world for the benefit of all.
At TPP, we believe in people, so we invest in people.

The result is this inspiring interview where Raquel shares the powerful story behind the creation of the Beyond the Classroom Foundation, her passion for helping children and the one wish she has for parents and guardians when it comes to caring for their children.
