Book now to reserve your spot on Dominika Tarnowska’s bottle school trip Feb 4 – 10, 2016

Having a huge heart for travel and kids all started when I was a little girl growing up in then a communist country of Poland. Even though we didn’t have much, I loved sharing whatever I had with my friends. I remember playing piano from our second floor studio apartment, and my friends lined up outside on the sidewalk to listen to my concerts. That’s all I could give them. By moving to the United States, a whole world of opportunities opened up. God placed a passion in my heart for travel and a strong urge to make a significant impact in children’s lives. This past March I was fortunate to travel to Guatemala and help the community of El Chocolate, San Martin Jilotepeque, Chimaltenango to build a bottle school with an amazing organization called Hug It Forward. All I have to say is WOW!! The community and the children got in my heart so deep that I’m leading the next trip. What’s super exciting is that we get to go February 4th to the 10th 2016!!! I’m so so fired up that you all are coming with and we get to experience this together!! Can’t wait!– Dominika Tarnowska

Fundraising for bottle schools

You might also like to fundraise for Hug It Forward bottle schools. Fundraising for bottle schools is optional – it is not a requirement of participating in a bottle school trip.

If you choose to fundraise, we suggest a $250 fundraising goal, but some people choose to do more or less than this. It’s really up to you – how much you think your friends and families can give, how creative you can be, and how much time you’re prepared to put into it.

See more information about fundraising.
