A letter from Absolute Hero:

In July 2005, Absolute launched its first annual Hero Holiday by bringing 120 students and leaders to Sosua, Dominican Republic to participate in a humanitarian relief project. We had high school students from all across Canada, mothers and sons, fathers and daughters, teachers, nurses, college students…all working together. We brought thousands of gifts for the poor, fed people hot meals at the Puerto Plata dump, dug a trench 2 km long to provide fresh water to a village and helped build houses for homeless families.

It was in the early planning stages of Hero Holiday that we met Richard Weber and 4T. Richard has proven invaluable to us both in the planning and implementation of Hero Holiday. His perspective as a North American living in the Dominican was very helpful, as he understood both cultures extremely well. He gladly answered all our questions thoroughly and in a timely manner. Many emails went back and forth over the ten months leading up to Hero Holiday! We felt confident bringing our team of students to a foreign country, knowing Richard would be right there at the airport to take care of us and calm any culture-shocked participants.

Richard and the 4T team were great to work with during our project. Our group fell in love with 4T. The services he provided (insurance coverage, airport shuttles, leisure activities) were all carried out with professionalism and excellence yet there was no lack of fun and laughter. We knew we were in good hands whether it was relaxing on a catamaran or jumping off a waterfall. Richard was willing to accommodate our individual needs and wasn't tied to a set 4T protocol. Each activity was custom-designed. As a result, he ended up at the Puerto Plata dump to deliver food! There were a few green 4T shirts amongst our team personally handing out food to the refugees.

I fully recommend 4T for anyone looking to bring a team to the Dominican Republic, whether work-related or simply to have fun. 4T helped make Hero Holiday a success and I am confident this relationship will continue in the years to come.
