The Foundation of Extra Virgin Press

The foundation of Extra Virgin Press lies upon the neighborhoods we have always worked in, and the many students that have enriched my life. My time in public schools brought me “minions”, but also an education that could only come from young people from around the world, The presses raise their voices in the community.

Give Miami 2022

Extra Virgin Press is glad to be part of Give Miami Day since 2017.

This year we are a “toddler,” having survived for five years as a tiny organization that serves the arts, students, writers, printing, and ideas that we can print.

Remarkably, in our first year as an organization, we connected to this community treasure through the Miami Foundation. I will do what I always do during GiveMiamiDay 2022. I will contribute to these remarkable organizations that make our city a better place.

O, Miami Poetry Festival
Martha Mary Concerts
Arts for Learning (A4L)
The Children’s Movement of Florida
Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator, Inc.

I used to say I was a “retired” teacher. All of these organizations work with kids. I work with them.

This event allows a modest $25 minimum donation for one of almost 1,000 non profit organizations in Miami. Who do you love? Or if you have the means to provide a life changing donation, to perhaps the Children’s Movement of Florida founded by David Lawrence Jr., you could change the world.
Children are our future.

If You Choose a Print to Bring Home

Thank you, thank you…

When and why do you raise your voice?The reasons and stimuli are vast.

As the “Raise Your Voice” prints from Amos Kennedy and Tom Virgin make their way into the homes of visitors who have selected them, I am grateful for the voices that came to me from around Miami, directly, and the world of words in books, from history. As you may have gathered, I am a book worm.

When we raise our voices together,
they are heard more clearly.

Thank you,
Tom @extravirginpress
