Haas Hall Rogers Raises Awareness and Funds for Artists in Central America

From 12/06/2019 to 12/18/2019, Haas Hall Rogers’s Spanish Club (La Sobremesa) will be selling hand-woven bracelets, or ‘pulseras’ in Spanish, to empower the artists who make them in Nicaragua & Guatemala. The sale was organized through the Pulsera Project, a Fair Trade nonprofit organization that empowers and educates people in the U.S. and Central America through pulsera sales.

Student and teacher volunteers raise funds that benefit fair trade jobs, worker rights, sustainability, and education, while learning about the culture, lives, and struggles of Central Americans. The Pulsera Project’s goal is to create a more just and colorful world by encouraging conscious consumerism and social enterprise.

We’ll be in lobby after school and during lunch for the next two weeks! All pulseras are priced at $5. For $6, you can send a pulsera-gram to an amigo or novio to be delivered on Monday, Dec. 13 during first block. We have a small supply of bolsitas (little purses) priced at $10. Come by room 302 if you’re interested in a pulsera and cannot find us in the lobby!
