This month the WORLD Language department is in charge of a charity event called “Pulsera Project”. With this event we will be collaborating with a non-profit organization that educates, empowers, and connects Nicaraguan youth with students in more than 800 US schools through the sale of colorful, hand-woven bracelets, or “”pulseras”” in Spanish. This project is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible and provide critical support for programs in Nicaragua. Most of their Nicaraguan programs are guided by a philosophy of empowerment. Rather than just giving things to people, they empower people with skills, opportunities, and education that allow them to provide for themselves and their communities.
The Nicaraguans have made this beautiful Pulseras and sent them to us. We would like to support their efforts by purchasing them. Each PULSERA costs 5 dollars. For elementary students we will have some 8th grade students passing by your child’s room every morning during second period, which at this time your child will be able to purchase a “pulsera”. For middle school, there will be a table set up outside of the cafeteria for purchasing. We are hoping each student from the school buys at least TWO pulseras, a total of 10 dollars. These could be a great addition to your holiday presents. J Our goal is to be able to sell 400 pulseras in total.
If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Atchison, Mrs. Teber, Mr. Duman or my self- Mrs. Carmona. You can also ask your child’s homeroom teacher. We will try our best to help you with your purchase. We would be deeply grateful for your support of this philosophy and the many young Nicaraguans who will benefit through your generosity.
