The Pulseras Project

Leah Rosado, staff writer

The Spanish club at Hawthorne High School hosted a fundraiser last month, for all the right reasons.

The Pulseras Project buys Pulseras (which are hand woven bracelets) from Central American artists. Each bracelet took about an hour to make due to its intricate designs and bright colors. The Pulseras project provides employment to 100 artists in Nicaragua and Guatemala. This program is to teach kids and the latin american culture and how important fair trade is.

Every bracelet cost five dollars. The money raised from the sales was given to programs that put people through secondary education, scholarships, housing programs, youth shelter support, workers rights advocacy, and the funding for environmental initiatives.
