Charities, nonprofits, school groups, clubs … all face the same problem: raising money. Fundraising can be difficult at the best of times, even more so in an economic downturn or during the busy fall season. Volunteers and leadership should not despair, however — wristbands offer a unique solution.
Custom silicone wristbands inscribed with art, slogans or or logos serve a dual purpose: 1) they are in themselves a desirable good, and 2) they further promote awareness for the cause. They serve as both awareness-raising and a tangible item.
Wristbands can be used in several ways for fundraising events. Giving out wristbands can incentivize volunteer service and donations, and the more people who wear them, the more your cause will be known.
If you’re running an event like a race or pancake breakfast, wristbands can be used to identify staff or participants.
Wristband also make great sale items in and of themselves. Selling wristbands for $3-5 provides an easy way for people to give and a great profit margin for money to go towards the cause. Wristbands can also be included as part of a larger package or reward for donation.
A simple way to raise awareness is to get politicians, community leaders, celebrities, etc to wear the bands as well.
Here are some recommendations from those who have used Reminderband wristbands to fundraise in the past:

“I ordered 200 reminderbands to raise money for a local boy with a rare form of tissue cancer. The bands sold out within hours. I ordered another 300 bracelets. We were able to raise over $1,000 in a matter of days. I placed my first order via phone. What a pleasant group of people. I placed my second order online. Super easy process. Great product”
