Book now to reserve your spot on Tony Caruana’s bottle school trip: March 11th – 17th, 2021

I am extremely grateful to get to lead yet another trip to Guatemala to help build a Bottle School with Hug It Forward! This will be my 8th time down there and 5th time leading a trip! It’s such a life-changing experience and when I get to see my family and friend’s lives changes – that’s what it’s all about! If you’ve been down there with us before, you know how amazing of an experience it is and how greatly Hug It Forward takes care of us.

We’ve got clean drinking water the entire time, Christy fixes the most amazing food for us, our bus drivers are the best, and Hug It Forward takes super good care of our group everywhere we go! There will be a Welcome and Closing dinner included, the village will have a Welcome and Closing ceremony for us, we’ll get to hike around their village, we’ll get to hear from their community members about what life is like down there, and we’ll get to spend a day at the Mayan ruins complete with a guide who is fluent in the Mayan culture/history!

As always, I am here to help! If you or anyone you know wants to come on this trip with us please reach out to me so I can help you in the process! I am crazy stoked for you to get to come experience this will us! You will remember this trip for the rest of your life 🙂

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.
