Book now to reserve your spot on Janine Bolivar’s bottle school trip: February 2nd to 8th, 2013

Dearest friends,You are invited!!! To fill your soul with song and fill your heart with love through community. Hold onto your seats as we plan to work hard, play hard and leave another image of the exquisite process that Hug It Forward has started. A revolution of love, innovation, recycling, community, education and tons of pure joy.

February 2nd through February 8th I am leading a very special trip to Guatemala to help build a Bottle School with Hug It Forward. Space is limited to a maximum of 24 of you! I know many of you are committed to come but space is limited! You must secure your spot and sign up online to guarantee your spot. Make sure you have read all the information on the site for what you need to do, know and bring. Make sure you are ready to learn, explore and change the world one bottle at a time.

In life I have found the world will go full circle if you allow things to. Living in Indonesia gave me the experience with the 3rd world countries. My passion for volunteering to Domestic Violence programs throughout the state, starting homeless feedings in downtown Seattle that spanned 7 years, and a passion for recycling and giving back to the world through humanitarian causes all came full circle when I saw the article for and the tears welled in my eyes and I said “I MUST BE A PART OF THIS!” and we are. I feel blessed to have you along the journey as we change our lives and the lives of those we touch in Guatemala.

Blessings, Janine
