I love how this project makes you feel like you are actually making a difference in the world since you get to Skype the student you are sponsoring. I also love how it creates jobs for people in Guatemala as well.

At first I was doubtful about whether a YUDA Bands project would go well at my school; however, once the bracelets arrived the trend started to spread like wildfire and our project was incredibly successful. Seeing kids recognize the importance of the cause and go around school campaigning for support was a beautiful thing to watch. For any student or club considering the project, my advice is undoubtedly to DO IT!

It was a total success. During class, a girl was showing off her Yuda Band and a boy asked why she would ever buy a band for $7? She told him that each band contributes to giving a child in another country an education for a year. Funny enough, the boy was seen wearing a Yuda Band a day later.

I can’t even begin to express how excited I am about this project. We started selling the bands today, thinking we’d just bring some down to show people what they are and to sell them if anyone had money, but it didn’t really go like that. Our table was PACKED with people from all angles! I’d say we sold at least 1/3 of the bands and that floors me because it was only our first day of selling them!

I saw a beautiful spirit unfold in my community. We ended up selling more bands than we have students in our school!

The Yuda Band Project helped expose the students at my high school to issues and global concerns of which they had been unaware.

Just knowing that my team and I were able to raise enough money to send three Guatemalan children to school for a year was incredibly rewarding.

My experience with the Yuda Bands Project really opened my eyes to what service is truly about.

The fundraiser brought our school together and more importantly, our community.

I would have to say the most rewarding part of the experience was actually meeting Charlotte by Skype.¬† She was AMAZING and we were very emotional, especially when one of our students sang a special song to Charlotte and she danced. I would have to say it’s going down as one of my favorite memories in my 22 years of teaching. My students and I won’t forget it. We LOVE YUDA BANDS!

I had always been so moved by this organization. I am proud to be a student at a school that allows us to have service opportunities that provide a connection from America to Zimbabwe, where hopefully our efforts will change their life forever.

Participating in the Yuda Bands Project was such a fulfilling experience! Students at my school have helped send other students our age, from across the world, to get their education and to  make their lives better, to live out their dreams. That is a truly incredible thing, and why I would recommend hosting a Yuda Bands project to anyone.
