From April 14-18, 2013, Lemonade International is hosting an amazing group of bloggers in Guatemala who will share stories and photos of the children and leaders we serve in La Limonada. They will be visiting each program, the leaders who are making a difference and the people in the community who are being transformed.

We pray that you will be able to experience La Limonada in a way that you never have before through the words and images that come from this group.

As the trip gets closer you can follow the bloggers on Twitter and watch the #LIbloggers hashtag for updates.
