Altadeña Middle School Students Buy Bracelets for Good Cause

After showing her Spanish students a video on the Pulsera Project, Kyrene Altadeña Middle School teacher Anne Bailey said students immediately wanted to volunteer to help the project along.

According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, the Pulsera Project sells bracelets that are made by women and youth in Nicaragua throughout the U.S. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the northern hemisphere and the program gets proceeds from the bracelet sales back to the makers.

About 30 students volunteered for the cause and prepared to sell 600 of the handmade bracelets at $5 a piece. The bracelets sold out in less than two days, the newspaper said.

“We started out with a table full of bracelets and when everyone was going to class there were only about 40 bracelets left and that was all,” said Chloe Gallello, who said she helped sell the bracelets for 20 minutes before school the first day. “I felt so proud.”
