Hispanic Culture Enrichment Class – Pulsera Project Success!

By Anna Parsons-Lamb

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Hispanic Culture enrichment class sold “Pulseras” or colorful bracelets made by artists from Guatemala and Nicaragua. Each bracelet cost $7.00. Sales took place October 4th-7th.

In four days the Hispanic Culture enrichment class raised $2390 in proceeds to donate to the Pulsera Project artists and their community. Thank you to our student volunteers and all the students, faculty and staff who supported the fundraiser by purchasing the bracelets and bags! 

The Pulsera Project is 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. We brighten U.S. schools with art and compelling cultural education while employing Guatemalan & Nicaraguan artisans and investing proceeds to create lasting change in their communities.  Explore our site to discover why students and teachers have spread the Pulsera Project from a single classroom to over 3,000 schools in all 50 states, coloring hallways and classrooms with beautiful Central American art and awareness of social justice issues.
