Book now to reserve your spot on Susan Stumph’s bottle school trip: June 15th to 21st, 2017

I have been fortunate in my life to participate in many wonderful volunteer opportunities. I believe having participated in these various opportunities have not only allowed me to give back to society, but have made me a better person and expanded my horizons. I have tried to lead by example and have encouraged my children and grandchildren to become involved. As my grandchildren have gotten older, it has been my desire to find service opportunities where we could work together as they discover for themselves the importance of giving to others.

Recently, I attended an event where someone who participated in a bottle school trip told about her wonderful experience. I was immediately excited and knew I wanted to form a team of friends and family to participate in a similar experience. There are many aspects of this opportunity that excite me: cleaning up the environment, building a school, and working alongside those who will benefit from our service.

Come join me and my family and friends as we work together to help build a bottle school in Guatemala. We will make memories, experience a new culture, give back to the children of Guatemala, and leave the world a better place.

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.
