Book now to reserve your spot on Tony Caruana’s bottle school trip: February 13th – February 19th, 2020

I am extremely grateful to get to lead another Bottle School Trip to Guatemala!! This will be my seventh trip and fourth time leading. It is an absolute blast and I love seeing people’s lives change. Your life will change like you can’t even imagine!

Hug It Forward takes super good care of us. There is nothing to worry about. They’ll pick us up from the airport and take us everywhere we go. All of our ground transportation is included. Clean drinking water is provided for us during the entire trip. We have a private chef who prepares our meals for us and it is AMAZING!! The trip also includes a community hike where we’ll get to see their houses and where they live, some informational talks from the community members, and a day at the Mayan ruins with a wonderful guide!

We will be working in the village of Maria del Carmen, Guatemala on Bottle School #130! They have been working hard on it for months and have come quite a ways! Most likely we’ll be helping them do the floors. All depends on how much work they get done before we get there. I am really excited to have you come join us! As always if you have any questions or need assistance with anything, please reach out to me. I’m here to help!

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.
