Customized rubber bracelets (wristbands) have proved to be a valuable resource for creating awareness of social causes, and raising funds. From the start of the classic yellow Livestrong bracelets in 2004, rubber (actually, silicone these days) wristbands have gone from a fad to a must-have fashion accessory, to a respected way of raising cash for worthy causes.
And no wonder. Those simple yellow wristbands, debossed with the word Livestrong, have raised millions of dollars for cancer research and patient support over the past 15 years. They’re easy to wear, affordable to virtually everyone and low cost to purchase in bulk. That makes them a nearly universal fundraising tool.
Following the massive success of the yellow wristbands, other charities adopted their own specific colors, such as pink for promotion of breast cancer awareness. The proliferation of colors can be confusing, but they’re also an opportunity. Anyone who sees a wristband can ask the wearer what cause they’re supporting. That gives the person wearing the bracelet a chance to talk about a cause or organization that’s important to them.
Customized rubber bracelets make outstanding school fundraisers. Students and faculty alike love to support their school, and silicone wristbands are inexpensive enough that virtually everyone who wants one can afford them. They’re a fantastic way to raise money fast for bands, clubs, sports teams and more, while promoting school spirit at the same time.
