Our new company, Impressions, became involved with a fundraising event for the American Cancer Society (ACS) local Relay for Life ® this year. It is an overnight outdoor family-focused event where teams of people from local businesses and the community participate in a 24-hr relay walk at a local track or field. In additional to celebrating survivors, its purpose is to raise funds and awareness about cancer prevention.
Reminderband custom silicone bracelets was a natural fit for this fundraising event. We requested Glow-in-the-dark, filled samples to present at the monthly Relay planning meeting. We knew that the other teams would be interested in selling the commemorative (filled) Glow-in-the-dark wristbands as part of their team’s fundraiser. When we turned the lights off to demonstrate the glow effect and they sold themselves. People also like the size selection and the price.
The initial order of 800 bands were sold to Relay teams (at a reduced price) to help boost their fundraising efforts. Team Impressions placed a subsequent order of 500 bands to be sold the day of the event. It is amazing how many people we see wearing these bands around town now. Reminderband helped our business raise funds for a great cause and helped us to become better known in the community. It’s a great conversation starter. We have already been contacted about future Reminderband orders for similar fundraising events and we are looking forward to next year’s Relay. .
We would like to express our appreciation to Jason and everyone at Reminderband silicone bracelets for the helpful service and quick turn-around that helped make this fundraising event a big success. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to doing even more business with Reminderband.
