Book now to reserve your spot on Humza Shamsuddin and Jonathan Lynas’ bottle school trip: June 10-16, 2021 ***Booking Options Below***

Greetings! I am beyond excited to be a part of this opportunity, not just to build a school, but to help build the FIRST EVER Ambassador Funded Bottle School! For those of you that do not know, the WorldVentures Ambassador family raised $19.000 to fund the construction of a Bottle School. It is time now to actually build it and see the impact it will have in its community.

I was blessed to have attended my first Bottle School Voluntourism trip in 2013. From that first experience, it turned into leading a trip in 2014, 2015, 2017, and an inaugural visit of the 100th Bottle School in 2016. “Changing the status quo” is a phrase that is almost cliche, yet it captures the essence of this trip perfectly.

If you want to be a part of something that is creating multi-generational impact and changing the lives of entire communities, then this is the experience for you!

While we are living in uncertain times, I am incredibly certain that this trip will change your life.

You can reach me at or at with any questions that you may have!

I can’t wait to see you soon!

So very excited to be planning these trips with you!! The Ambassador Bottle School project has been a labor of love that began back in 2016 when we started funding this school. Over 3+ years time a group of friends and global game changers put together over $19,000 to gift this new community with a place to learn and prepare for their next generation for the future.

Two trips to Guatemala 🇬🇹 to build schools with local communities and leave behind a legacy for families having prayed years for a school in their community has altered my life in such an amazing and impactful way. Attending bottle school builds in 2018 & 2019, all while raising funds for this current project has lit up my life and reminded me what giving and serving community is all about.

The joy and gratitude experienced by building schools with the very kids who will learn there is beyond impactful and powerful. I am looking forward to supporting the team that we get to build with this year in March 2021!

We will live, love, and learn the most amazing things from one another. The Hug it Forward organization that we partner with on these trips is super special. Run like a family, they open their arms to us and we literally hug it forward all week.

Let’s go love on some of the most amazing people I know. Let’s continue the mission of the Hug it Forward and WorldVentures Foundation families, and let’s leave a legacy through education by co-creating a new school with a new community. Let’s build the first-ever WVAmbassador Funded Bottle School. I promise this: what we receive as a team and a family through this experience will far surpass any expectations we may set and far exceed in value any price we pay to share it.

Excited to go-create this legacy with each of you, Hug It Forward and the WVAmbassador Familyship! Let’s build a school and Hug It Forward!

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.
