Book now to reserve your spot on Dominika Blum’s bottle school trip: February 28th – March 6th, 2019


Having a huge heart for travel and children 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 believe God placed a passion in my heart for travel and a strong urge to make a significant impact in children’s lives. 

During my first voluntour trip to El Chocolate in San Martin Jilotepeque, Chimaltenango, Guatemala my heart filled up with love and joy for the community we were serving. I had no doubt in my mind that I will be coming back again and again and again. Playing with the children, learning from them and the members of the community, laughing together, teaching each other and making memories was life changing. Lacking in educational facilities and affected by poverty, yet oozing with rich culture and strong family values; the communities come together for their kids’ education. All of that and their kindness and smiles is what we all need to apply to our first world lives. 

For the passed four years I have been fortunate to build bottle schools in five different communities and they forever will be in my heart. February 2019 we are off to Guatemala again!! Thanks to Hug it Forward, an amazing organization and a huge blessing to so many, for making these volunteering trips possible! 

Join us February 28th to March 6th, 2019 to build a bottle school with us. Change a life, change a village, change yourself in the process. 
I’m super excited we get to experience this together!! I can’t wait to see you all in Guatemala!

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.
