Book now to reserve your spot on Ed and Lisa Guerrero’s bottle school trip: November 2nd to 8th, 2023 ***Booking Options Below***

 
 
 
Join us November 2023 to build a bottle school in Guatemala!

Do you have a heart to give? If so, this is the perfect trip for you! By giving, you will find you “get” even more. We love our time helping the community and spending time with the families, especially the children. Building a bottle school is a great way to help support a community project. That’s right! The communities put in time and effort to contribute to and sustain these projects. What better way to leave an impact than by building a school that will benefit future generations for years.

Watch the YouTube video below to learn more. You’ll even get to be a tourist. It’s called Voluntourism (a form of tourism in which travelers participate in voluntary work). We’ll enjoy time in Antigua, a visit to Mayan Ruins and other fun activities. Hug It Forward has built over one hundred bottle schools. We have supported this project for five years and are excited about establishing a private annual trip each November.

We hope you will be one of the first to join us November 2-8, 2023!

Greetings,
Ed & Lisa Guerrero

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.
