YUDA Bands, America's most popular service learning project, has invited Haitian Roots to continue joining forces with them as one of their Premiere Partners! Derived from ayuda, the Spanish word for help, YUDA Bands are popular handmade leather and coconut bracelets sold in US high schools, jr. highs, and middle schools, to raise money for a variety of causes. So far, nearly $20,000 has been raised through Yuda Bands for kids in the Haitian Roots program!
You can help us to continue building Haitian Roots through Yuda Bands by visiting their website and asking for a FREE Info Pack, which includes a sample Yuda Band and a DVD telling how the project works. Then, share the idea of Yuda Bands with someone you know who is a student, parent, teacher, or otherwise involved with your local high school, jr high, or middle school. Once a school decides to host a project, Yuda Bands takes over, working alongside youth leaders, via Internet, to make the project a success for Haitian Roots. Yuda Bands covers the cost for all shipping, including the return of any unsold bands, so there is no expense or risk to the school. After the project is completed, OUR organization will receive a check based on the number of Yuda Bands sold. Help Haitian Roots today by visiting the Yuda Bands website to learn more and request a Free Info Pack! www.yudabands.org.
