US Based WorldVentures Foundation Donates $100,000 To Hug It Forward Towards Education

Donation Helps to Fund 25 Bottle Schools in Latin America

Plano, TX – July 20, 2013 – WorldVentures Foundation™, the philanthropic arm of WorldVentures, the leading direct seller of vacation club memberships, announced today that it has raised and donated over $100,000 to Hug It Forward, a grass-roots organization that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities to build schools using “eco-bricks.” Because of the efforts of WorldVentures Independent Representatives, Hug It Forward is now able to develop eight new schools in Guatemala. Since October 2009, the organization has completed 25 successful bottle school projects, at an average cost of $6,500 per classroom.

“We are extremely proud of our Independent Representatives donating to the WorldVentures Foundation for such a worthy cause as education, live at our biggest training event of the year,” WorldVentures Co-Founder  and Chief Visionary Officer Wayne Nugent said. “Our Representatives and DreamTrips™ Members have already helped complete 25 bottle schools with their donations of time and funding. We are amazed by their kindness.”

“I am inspired by how the WorldVentures community aligns to manifest positive change for children and communities, one experience at a time,” WorldVentures Foundation Executive Director Gwyneth Lloyd said.

Bottle schools provide permanent classroom structures for children in at-risk communities in Latin America. Instead of using cinder-blocks to build school walls, “eco-bricks” are used. Together with the entire community, Hug It Forward and WorldVentures Foundation volunteers craft eco-bricks by stuffing discarded plastic bottles with bags and other non-biodegradable, insulating trash. The eco-bricks are stacked between chicken wire and then covered by a cement and sand mixture. This method is eco-friendly, economical and safe, as endorsed by independent structural analysis. Construction has already begun in Xesuj - San Martin―the first of the eight additional bottle schools.
