“Behind the Green Box” – Gaia clothes donation bins & Campus California

‘Behind the Green Box’ is a hard-hitting news investigation into a used clothes collecting charity called ‘Gaia’, and an affiliated volunteer training school called ‘Campus California.’ The story originally aired in December of 2006 on CBS-5 / KPIX-TV in San Francisco. “In this season of giving [December, 2006], a new charity in the Bay Area is welcoming volunteers and clothing donations through its green-colored bins with the friendly ‘Gaia’ label. But behind the green box, investigative reporter Anna Werner uncovers a Danish organization known as ‘Tvind,’ or ‘Teacher’s Group.’ Critics call it a cult that is using people’s good will to make millions in profit.” NOTE: Campus California’s volunteer training school in Etna, CA — shown in this news story — reportedly closed under mysterious circumstances in December 2009. The organization has since relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area and has continued with its clothes collection operation, which, without an accompanying ‘educational’ program, may contravene its license to operate in California as a non-profit.
