Pulsera Project May 1st – 5th

“Pulsera” is the Spanish word for bracelet. The Pulsera Project is a Fair Trade Non-Profit organization that partners with U.S. schools to empower artists in Central America.

The 3rd Grade will be selling handwoven pulseras made by nearly 200 artists in Nicaragua and Guatemala as a way to support them and their communities!

Money raised from our sale will help employ the artists with high-paying jobs while also funding scholarships, workers rights initiatives, youth shelters, secondary education programs, environmental programs, human rights initiatives, and much more.

Each pulsera is a one-of-a-kind work of art and costs only $5! We will be selling them May 1st – May 5th in the Elementary cafeteria before school and at lunch.

Come support this great cause while also getting a beautiful bracelet to color your wrist!
