Book now to reserve your spot on Phil Grubb’s bottle school trip: May 4-10th, 2014

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~Winston Churchill

In May 2014, I, along with a small group of caring individuals will travel into unfamiliar territory; heading into an unfamiliar country where we will be immersed in an unfamiliar culture for the purpose of helping a group of fellow human beings that we have never met. We will be warmly welcomed and surrounded by beautiful people and a culture rich in family and a strong sense of community. This is a mission of goodwill; a mission of hope. This is our chance to make a positive impact; to enrich the lives of the people, especially the children of Guatemala for generations to come by building a school in an area that desperately needs it. Please join us on this amazing Voluntourism trip. You can help us change lives…and one of those could be your own.

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.
