Today’s featured cause is The Pinky Promise Project! Two teenage girls are making a difference by promoting respect for women in a fun way.
Here’s how it works: they visit public places with a bag full of flowers and hand them to young men and ask them to pinky-promise to respect, appreciate, and value all the women in their lives. They then give them a colored flower that they are to give to any girl they see (and a Reminderband wristband to help them remember their promise!). Each flower’s color represents a type of respect that will be explained to the boy when he receives it. Attached is a note with a powerful quote and information about the project as well as clues about what the color represents.
“The idea behind it is that with the pinky promise, boys become more aware of what it means to respect women and the girl receiving the flower is reminded that she deserves the utmost respect and should never get anything less.”
We love this mission and its creative, positive use of Reminderband wristbands. You can follow the Pinky Promise Project on Instagram here or on Facebook.
October is breast cancer awareness month, and it’s coming up quickly. It’s a huge month for fundraising. Breast cancer is one of the biggest awareness causes. October is filled with awareness and fund-raising events, and it’s one that benefits hugely from awareness bracelets.
If you’re planning on fundraising or hosting an event next month, now is the best time to get your order in for cancer bracelets. On Reminderband, we have a cancer bracelet showcase with design ideas, or you can custom-design your own on our order page.
For past reading on raising breast cancer awareness and fundraising, check out these stories:
Team Cyndi is an organization supporting Cyndi Ricketts in her fight against Triple Negative Breast Cancer, a form of cancer that is more difficult to treat. Ricketts was diagnosed in June, and Reminderband cancer bracelets are being worn by her friends and family to show her support for her as she begins treatment.
Unexpected Resolution Men’s A Cappella is an a cappella group from Ball State University. They focus on being “relaxed and casual while bringing their best on stage and adding something unexpected to each song to make it their own, be it a barbershop-style end to a Top 40 hit, a vocal breakdown of a jazz standard, or mashing up multiple genres into one song.” They use Reminderband wristbands as a reminder of their commitment to the group and to bring their best to every rehearsal and performance.
