Del Mar Pines student designs bracelet to raise funds for school and to raise awareness on the importance of recycling

Del Mar Pines 6th grader Paige Macdonald is proof that one person can make a difference. Paige started a recycling program at Del Mar Pines last year and has not only raised awareness of the importance of recycling but has also raised over $500 for the school with the enthusiastic support of the DMP students and staff.

Excited by the program’s success, Paige designed a bracelet using the logo she created for the DMP recycling program. Paige is selling the bracelets for $10 each and 100 percent is going to water.org. Water.org is a charity that helps provide access to safe drinking water in Africa, South Asia and Central America. Paige’s goal is to raise $500 and she’s close to meeting that goal after only one month of selling the bracelets. Paige is honored to be a junior ambassador for water.org and help others see that with a little creativity one kid can make a difference.

A budding artist, Paige will have one of her photographs featured at The San Diego Museum of Photographic Arts’ 8th annual juried youth exhibition, which opened Oct. 19. Out of 263 entries only 64 were accepted for display at their Balboa Park museum. The event runs through Feb. 2 and more information can be found at http://www.mopa.org/yx13.
