Silicone wristbands are quickly becoming one of the most effective and popular advertising mediums for small and large businesses. However, many fundraising organizations are beginning to use wristbands to help advertise causes and raise awareness.

Fundraising wristbands are a great way for organizations and charities to promote advertising causes with a specific message, reaching thousands of people. While wristbands are extremely inexpensive to produce, most fundraising organizations can afford to sell them for a donation profit, helping raise funding for certain medical conditions and social awareness causes.

Additionally, many fundraising campaigns can be spur of the moment, especially when they are related to community tragedies or helping raise funds for someone suffering from a devastating medical condition. In cases such as these, Reminderband focuses on creating a high quality product that can be delivered in as few as six business days, depending upon shipping type, order type, color-filled debossing and order quantity.

The following wristband colors represent different awareness causes:

  • Purple – Domestic Violence, Lupus and Cystic Fibrosis
  • Orange – Asperger’s and Self Harm
  • Grey – Brain Cancer and Diabetes
  • Gold – Childhood Cancer
  • White – Fighting Poverty
  • Pink – Breast Cancer
  • Green – Organ Donor and Leukemia
  • Blue – Prostate Cancer
  • Black – Melanoma
  • Red – HIV and Heart Disease

Charity and fundraising wristbands or cancer bracelets help promote a variety of other causes, including education for poor children, helping needy patients with medical treatments and providing free medications those less fortunate, even funding research for disease-causing solutions.

Popular fundraising hints include:

  • Volunteers – Assigning volunteers tasks for fundraising efforts is extremely helpful in reaching necessary goals. Dividing work into smaller tasks among several volunteers is recommended, so one volunteer doesn’t feel overwhelmed. Always thank volunteers for their support and relay how valuable their contributions are to fundraising efforts.
  • Members – To keep members motivated, fundraising groups can offer prizes and other small rewards, including lunch, local business donations or even complimentary advertising at fundraisers. Always be positive, excite and enthusiastic – as energy is contagious.
  • Parents – Parents are necessary for successful community and school fundraising events. Sending emails, letters and calling parents is a great way to stay in constant contact without appearing too pushy or forcing anyone to participate.

Reminderband offers a wide selection of custom wristbands and cancer bracelets, which are perfect for any fundraising event.

Wristbands are excellent promotional items, for the following reasons:

The popularity of rubber silicone wristbands and awareness bracelets propelled to an all time high by Lance Armstrong’s vivid yellow LIVESTRONG cancer bracelets. Introduced in May 2004, these bracelets have raised more than $80 million to date for cancer research, specifically for the LIVESTRONG Foundation, which is an ardent supporter for cancer survivorship.

No matter what people think about Lance Armstrong’s decade’s worth of performance enhancing drug denials and then his not-so-shocking “coming clean” episode with Oprah in January 2013, there is one fact that should not be lost in this sea of accusations, illegal doings and illicit acts: Mr. Armstrong’s voice for charity.

Yes, some may say that Mr. Armstrong simply created a foundation to draw more attention to his self-infatuation and narcissism (no official diagnosis intended), but the reality is that he did suffer from testicular cancer, which in fact spread to his lungs and brain. After extensive therapies, he received a clean bill of health, returning to his preferred sport of cycling.

While many Americans and people from around the world consider Mr. Armstrong a hero in his own right for cancer survivorship, his claim to cycling glory and claim to fame was winning a record seven consecutive Tour de France titles. Now, these titles have been stripped from the record books by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). His cycling name and reputations are forever tarnished, synonymous with doping and destine to coexist on sites such as Wikipedia, being erased from world records and the Union Cycliste Internationale.

No one doubts that Mr. Armstrong reflects the characteristics of a convincing, if not manipulative, man that duped the world with some of the most advanced performance enhancing drugs to ever enter into the professional cycling arena. In fact, the USADA even admitted that Mr. Armstrong participated in “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that the sport has ever seen.”

However much of a narcissist and self-preserving attention phene the media claims Mr. Armstrong may be, one reality rings true: his dedication to helping preserve cancer research and offer support for cancer survivors.

While the people employed by the Livestrong Foundation likely feel let down and depressed, as though their dear leader led them dazed into the blinding lights similar to a deer being led to vehicular slaughter, they should be proud of the work the LIVESTRONG Foundation has done and focus on the number of lives they have changed, instead of simply on Mr. Armstrong’s shortcomings and antiquated selfish antics.

Whatever opinion one shares about Mr. Armstrong, it is impossible to deny that he and the LIVESTRONG Foundation team forever changed the popularity and ease of fundraising and awareness events. Without companies, such as Reminderband, mass-producing custom bracelets, including charity bands and cancer bracelets, there are a number of charities that would still be relatively unknown. In fact, without the advance of the yellow LIVESTRONG silicone wristband, the attention given to cancer support survivors may not exist. Today, popular awareness bracelets include Multiple Sclerosis, Support Our Troops, Religious awareness and even Breast Cancer Awareness groups.

Everyone is flawed and no one in the world is perfect. While Mr. Armstrong’s sport image is forever flawed, never to regain a devout following, we can honor and preserve the memory of his foundation that helped save the lives of those suffering from the deadly disease we know as cancer.

There are two main holidays to support our American military troops: Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day. Memorial Day is held every May and is a day for celebrating, remembering and honoring the military personnel that died while defending and preserving our U.S. freedoms. This day also honors the men and women who perished or sustained wounds in battle.

In 1966, the U.S. Congress declared Waterloo, New York to be the official birthplace of Memorial Day. One hundred years prior, a ceremony was held at that same location, honoring the veterans who had served so valiantly in the U.S. Civil War. After World War I, this day was further expanded to include those men and women who died in all U.S. battles, wars and conflicts.

Memorial Day is a day when soldiers’ graves are decorated, adorned with flowers and wreaths in honor of the soldiers who perished while preserving our valuable U.S. freedoms.

Today, Memorial Day is celebrated by raising the flag to the top of the staff and then resting at half-staff where it traditionally remains until noon. It is then raised to full staff again. The half-staff position signifies the government’s remembrance and appreciation to the one million men and women who perished while serving our country and preserving our freedoms. The flag is raised again to express that the men and women who died, did not pass in vein but their fight for justice and liberty continues to be a vital component to the very essence of the U.S.’ constitution and character.

Many events and parades are held nationwide on Memorial Day, especially in military-towns, including Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army and Coast Guard cities and communities. Many of these parades feature local marching bands, military themes, participating veterans and even lines of military vehicles from different war eras. One of America’s deepest traditions associated with Memorial Day is the Indianapolis 500. This auto race has been held the Sunday before Memorial Day since 1911.

Many ardent military supporters distribute custom wristbands free or for donation purposes, giving the proceeds to local military chapters, wounded veterans or memorial foundations. These silicone wristbands can signify military support, military awareness and military service or simply serve as fundraiser bracelets for local widows and children whose parents were killed in the line of duty. Others wear “Support Our Troops” wristbands as a day-in, day-out reminder of military service past and present.

With Memorial Day right around the corner, there is no time like the present to order personalized silicone bracelets from Reminderband today.

As senior high school classes are beginning to wrap up their last remaining weeks before graduation, juniors are beginning to gear up for future fundraising efforts over the summer and fall months. These funds often help support school activities, sporting events, dances and event outings.

Instead of trying the same tried and boring fundraising ideas, the class of 2014 should consider taking a unique approach to fundraising, including:

  • Low-End Events – Instead of having gourmet-style dinners, consider embracing the last food truck trends. These corn dog booths, taco stands and donut trucks are less expensive, provide more interaction and ultimately attract a wider audience and crowd, drawing a more community-style event.
  • Reverse Raffles – Instead of offering an expensive car or gift that was painstaking donated by a community member, reverse raffles afford everyone in attendance the ability to receive a raffle ticket – free of charge! What is the catch? Instead of winning an awesome prize, the recipient receives a gag gift – much like a White Elephant party. For example, the winner has to dance with the team’s mascot, wear a band uniform and march with the band or simply dance with a group of clowns. At the end of the evening, guests can “sell” their tickets back for donations. After all, who wouldn’t gladly sell their tickets back to save a little fun-filled embarrassment?
  • Direct Action – Instead of simply asking people to donate money, ask people to donate to a direct cause. For example, the football team needs new sporting equipment, the school is seeking donations to purchase supplies for needy children, etc.
  • Work – Instead of simply asking for donations, asking people to donate work is a great way to involve the community in school spirit, volunteerism and fundraising.
  • Certified Mailings – Consider mailing out donation requests to alumni members, as this is a direct route to people who completed the school system, have good memories of the community and want to sponsor the latest graduating class.

Reminderband offers the latest styles and varieties of silicone bracelets, which are perfect “gifts” for people who are offering donations to local schools. These fundraiser bracelets can be personalized and offer custom bracelets for individual schools and/or graduating classes.

Relay for Life are events sponsored by the American Cancer Society. These events are held in more than 20 countries and attract more than four million participants. Designed to help raise cancer awareness and funds for cancer support and research, these successful events are held in spring and summer months, when the weather is nice for outdoor events.

Many cancer supporters wear rubber wristbands, which are utilized as awareness bracelets or cancer bracelets. Reminderband is able to personalize any style of wristband, which is perfect for cancer supporters and cancer survivors.

What is Relay for Life? First, the event opens at a track area with an opening ceremony. The event begins by cancer survivors’ walking the all-important “survivor lap,” helping signify their defeat of this deadly disease. The third lap is given to the caregivers who have helped support and provide cancer patients with valuable care. The fourth lap is open to all relay teams and the fifth lap includes lit candles that celebrate the life of loved ones that passed on or are currently fighting this difficult disease. The sixth portion includes activities, entertainment and family games. The seventh, and final event, includes a “Fight Back Ceremony,” which essentially closes the event. The relay teams take a final lap, an action to spread awareness is pledged and the message of cancer prevention and treatment is shared.

Relay for Life is active in more than 5,200 communities, and includes a wide variety of supporters, participants and volunteers who are dedicated to helping fight the battle against cancer. Every year this event helps raise more than $400 million dollars towards research, information for cancer patients and specific caregiver information. Getting involved is simple:

  • Locate a local Relay for Life event.
  • Sign up for the event and
    • Fundraise;
    • Donate time to walk, as a survivor, team captain, team member or caregiver; or
  • Volunteer and
    • Help assist with local events by coordinating, setting up, assisting during survivor dinner plans, cleaning up, distributing information, etc.; or
  • Donate
    • Make an individual, team or event donation or gift.

The Relay for Life website offers excellent ideas for fundraising ideas, including items that the American Cancer Society can and cannot sell. Memories, donation cards, homemade crafts and team name projects are excellent ways to help raise valuable funds and donations for cancer awareness groups.

The latest trend in high school graduations is senior classes wearing silicone bracelets that highlight school colors and the graduation year. These are worn throughout high school as a reminder and motivator to look towards graduation, or these can simply be worn senior year to commemorate the last year of adolescence, before adulthood takes hold and lifelong responsibilities take affect.

The latest high school traditions include:

  • Senior Pictures are always popular. Consider putting in an order ahead of time with friends and family to ensure that orders are accurate.
  • Hosting a graduation party is a great way to commemorate a special venture into adulthood. This party can feature the graduate’s favorite food, activities and closest friends.
  • To make sure that pictures look professional and last a lifetime, graduates must wear their cap and gown properly. The cap’s top is parallel to the ground and the gown evenly disperses across both shoulders.
  • Saving extra space in graduation albums for after party comments and thought provoking memories is a great idea.
  • Graduation rings and bracelets are a great way to preserve a graduation tradition, passed down from generation to generation throughout the years.
  • Parents can decorate their graduate’s cap with a special momentous message and even a photo, to help set the cap apart and ensure its safe return after its voyage into the air.
  • Private high schools often maintain traditional religious ceremonies, conducting religious services to celebrate faith and students’ achievements.
  • If a graduate is asked to provide a graduation speech, a parent can offer to help. Speeches are an opportunity for a graduate to provide diverse viewpoints about the current class’ future.
  • If people are looking for a graduation gift, consider a gift certificate to a furniture store, as this allows graduates to set up small college-style apartments with kitchen utensils, dishware, furniture, computers and even a television.

One of the best reminders students have of high schools are the mementos that were with them throughout their “good ol’ days.” Today’s popular memories include rubber wristbands and awareness bracelets, offering a blank slate for students to promote campaigns, causes, school sporting events, clubs and fundraisers.

As with any popular fashion-runway trends, silicone bracelets mimic the trendiest runway colors. This spring is anticipated to introduce a variety of trendy colors, bold dresses and silicone wristbands offer the ideal wrist accessory that is not only stylish but raises awareness for various causes.

The latest spring 2013 fashion colors include:

  • Emerald – From bold pops of eye color and nail polish to edgy dresses with chic metallic belts, emerald is all the rage this season.
  • Grayed Jade – This color is more muted than the aforementioned emerald but it offers a subtler green hue for those that can’t quite pull off eye-popping color trends. This color is deal for both men and women.
  • Tender Shoots – This color is more of a sophisticated lime green, toned down a few hues to reflect the sensational beauty of spring – just like a tender pea sprout bursting forth in the warm sun.
  • Dusk Blue – This light hued blue makes light eyes pop but looks simply sensational on blondes, brunettes and any color of eyes.
  • Monaco Blue – Think the royal blue of the late Princess Diana and Princess Grace, dawning colors that simply made heads’ turns and jaws’ drop. This color looks great with brown eyes but makes blue eyes pop to a new shade of azul.
  • Lemon Zest – Trendy, buttery, but adding an eye-pop of color, this zesty color is reminiscent of bright yellows from the 50’s and 60’s. Anyone thinking a yellow polka dot bikini this season?
  • Nectarine – More toned down than fall’s burnt oranges, nectarine is playful and screams floral spring fun. This color is popping up on scarves, in jewelry and on sandal adornments. It looks especially good for nail polish colors.
  • Linen – The most neutral color this season, this complimentary color is beige with a hint of pink, giving it glowing warmth that looks good with almost any complexion.
  • Poppy Red – Bright, fun, flirty and simply undeniably adorable, this season’s poppy red will turn heads both on the runaway and in the bars. It looks great as an accessorized color or simply try this color in a flowing gown with a fashionable leg slit. We guarantee you’ll be the most sensational hit at the party.

Silicone wristbands come in such an array of colors and hues; they can literally be worn with any of today’s latest runway trends. Adding a chunky accessory is the latest fashionable trend and nothing is more comfortable than stacking coordinating layers of rubber wristbands that look tasteful, drawing much needed attention to slender arms and bringing out pops of color in floral outfits.
