As a generous demonstration of their gratitude to Christel House International Founder and CEO Christel DeHaan, students at Christel House Mexico participated in their own Founder’s Day Campaign.
As part of their campaign, the students sold bracelets and collected more than $3,000 for the school. Diego, an ambitious fourth grader, sold 200 bracelets all by himself.
Students who attend Christel House learning centers around the globe come from severely impoverished areas. Some of their families may even struggle to provide them with consistent meals and shelter. But even though they don’t have many material possessions, they recognize the importance of giving what they can to help others.
