Book now to reserve your spot on Tracy and Bubba Meyers’ bottle school trip: July 22-28, 2021 ***Booking options below***

Tracy and I have been blessed with the opportunity to be of service to a deserving population in Guatemala. One of our Trinity Homeowners, and a great friend, Gary Schrear, introduced us to a program called Hug It Forward. This is an established organization that facilitates in the building of schools throughout Guatemala since 2009.

Hug It Forward’s goal is to bring education to as many remote communities in the region through volunteerism. We will be assisting in the construction a Bottle School under guidance of Hug It Forward and would like to extend an invitation for you to join us. Today, we have 11 volunteers ready to come and work together to make a difference in the future of each child from the education learned at a “Bottle School”.

With travel opening back up and adventures waiting for us all, what a great opportunity to experience the people of Guatemala, make a difference in young lives and visit a country with rich culture and strong family values. We are asking you to join us on our venture which promises to be fun and most definitely a rewarding experience. We are leaving July 22-28, 2021. Act soon and we hope to see you there.

Best regards,

– Tracy and Bubba

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.
