Mason Middle School Spanish students recently raised $1,445 for the Pulsera Project, a fundraiser where colorful handmade bracelets called pulseras are made by students in Nicaragua and sold in the United States to raise money for young Nicaraguans through projects that support education, employment, community and sustainability.
MMS eighth graders in Lauren Taggert’s Spanish 1A classes sold the $5 bracelets during lunch.
“The Pulsera Project was a wonderful experience for our students. It was a way for them to impact others, and to learn more about these amazing artisans and what a relatively small amount of money can mean for children in Nicaragua,” said Taggert.
