Did you know that students in Guatemala have to pay for their education beyond 6th grade?

Did you know that you can play a part in helping send two Guatemalan students, Alex and Alejandra, to school for a year?   A donation of $7 will give you a cool new "Yuda Band" bracelet - which are available in many different styles - and two Guatemalan students the chance to continue their education!   Our goal is to sell 350 bracelets so that we can fully fund a year of education for our two chosen Guatemalan students. Please help us out with this important cause!
