Next Up Foundation Helps Kids Through Skateboarding

10.20.11 – J. Grant Brittain

Swift and I drove up to Heverton Rebeiro’s photo show at the Find Art Gallery in Costa Mesa the other night and we met a young Brazilian, Vinicius Tinoco. Vinicius lives in California now and runs a charity group that puts skateboards in the hands of kids in underprivileged Anaheim neighborhoods. The Next Up Foundation also provides instruction and a place for kids to get together and skate with other kids at the Anaheim Boys and Girls Club. The Foundation relies on contributions from the public and from industry sponsors. Check out this video and see what it’s all about and go to their website.Next Up Foundation
