Air Plant Shop's Second School in Cantón San José, Guatemala is Nearing Completion
1 min read
We are thrilled to share that our second school built by Pencils of Promise and funded by Air Plant Shop and YOU, our customers, is almost finished! The school is located in Cantón San José, Guatemala. Preliminary site work began in March of 2020, but with the pandemic restrictions we faced months of personnel and material delays. Luckily, we were able to break ground and the expected completion of our new two room module is expected in the next couple of weeks.
The very first stages of creating a structure which will transform into a safe haven for so many children. Big thanks to the men and women working diligently to make this possible.

Progress on the school's foundation. Now we can envision the block classroom with teachers and students!
Motivated workers ensuring the structure they build will last for a very long time!

At AirPlantShop.com we are grateful for surviving the recent world challenges. We still get to work with beautiful air plants alongside friends and family. It brings about our innate need to contribute to the world around us. Some people give in the form of something seemingly small like being there for a friend in need or something major like contributing financially to a worthwhile cause. We understand the importance of giving back to those in need. Our mother taught us that.
Air Plant Shop is pleased to announce the location of our second school in Guatemala. It will be located in the Boca Costa region of the country. Pencils of Promise and Air Plant Shop have been partnered since 2015 with a commitment to donate $1 for every order to Pencils of Promise. Thank you to our customers for making this possible.
Thank you so much for ordering our handmade Christmas Trees! For every tree sold, Air Plant Shop will donate an extra $3 to support our primary schools in Guatemala. Once you finish admiring its beauty it is time to water the tree. Follow the instructions below.
