The Pulsera Project website states that they are "a nonprofit organization that educates, empowers, and connects Central American artists with students in more than 3,000 U.S. schools through the sale of colorful handwoven bracelets, or 'pulseras' in Spanish."
By buying a bracelet through the North Scott Spanish Club, you are helping The Pulsera Project employ nearly 200 artists with Fair Trade jobs. This allows them to have a steady job that can fit around their schedules with school and family.
You may ask, "How does this money go to them?" The proceeds are invested in programs that support the artists, their communities, and other organizations. Examples of the impact of the funding are helping teenage girls and women go to school, helping families have a source of income to buy food, services, etc., having organizations for Workers' Rights, and much more!
To buy one of these handmade bracelets and support a Central American family, bring $7 to any lunch from February 6th (Monday) to February 10th (Friday).
