May 2013 Bottle School Trip

“I have had the privilege of participating in two Hug-It-Forward trips to Guatemala. We are making a difference in the lives of many rural families. The trips are amazing!

We spent the majority of our time at the community of Quimal. The Guatemalan people are wonderful with a very real sense of community. We also had the opportunity to visit two finished schools – La Pedera and Los Cerritos. I worked on the school at La Pedera in October, 2012. There are no words to describe the feelings that overwhelmed me as I was standing next to the finished school. We also visited Los Cerritos – friends Steve and Anne Burgason worked on the school during the summer of 2012. The children were waiting for us when we arrived. Many hugs exchanged!

The Bottle School trips are a must for everyone. The trips are life changing. To be a part of helping others obtain a good education for generations to come is an awesome privilege. We are giving children and their families a hope and bright future. Thank you Hug-It-Forward and WorldVentures!” – Linda
