Spanish Pulsera Project

This past week the Novice A Spanish classes held the sale of their pulseras (bracelets in Spanish) and were able to raise $4,030 to help improve peoples' lives in Nicaragua. The artisans who make the bracelets are able to receive a fair wage in a country where 80% live off of less than $2 a day. Not only does this lift the artisans out of poverty, but it also funds education as well as homeless shelters to get people off of the street. MGM students have done a fantastic job helping those in need! Thank you to Senora Carter and Senor Ward for your hard work in organizing, as well as to the parents who volunteered their time to help out with the sales!


Way to go Gators!
