Hug It Forward is a 100% non-profit that facilitates education and awareness by empowering communities to build “bottle schools” in Guatemala.
Bottle schools are schools built using “eco-bricks,” plastic bottles stuffed with inorganic trash. Entire communities come together to build more sustainable educational infrastructure for their future.
Hug It Forward also strives to raise awareness in developed countries about trash, consumption and the power of community. This mission is equally important to us as facilitating the construction of bottle schools in developing countries.
In the past 8 years Hug It Forward has completed 113 schools. Funds from this event will go directly to the building costs of future schools.
Headlining this year’s Hug It Forward Concert is Colorado Springs premier reggae/rock band The KnightBeats!!! Also joining us will be the iconic “Rawbert” Beard, playing a plethora of hit songs. Other musicians to be announced soon.
Every ticket purchased also includes an automatic entry into the main gift basket drawing. Seating is general admission, so make sure to arrive early to get some good seats!
