Sergeant Merlin German

How do you repay the many men and women who fight for our freedom every day? They sacrifice so much in order for us to have the freedom and liberty that we all enjoy. Reminderband Inc had the opportunity of making silicone wristbands in honor of Sergeant Merlin German.

Merlin was born in Manhattan, New York on Nov 15th, 1985. On January 21st, 2005, Sergeant German’s squad was on a mission enroute from Jordan to Baghdad, when he saw an IED while standing in the turret. His humvee was hit by a gas-fed charge explosive and Sergeant German was burned over 97% of his body. He had endured about 100 surgeries and much pain before he died on April 11th 2008. His courage and great attitude will be missed by all who knew him. He fought his personal battle for nearly three years, but died while recovering from his last surgery.

Merlin loved children and started a foundation to assist burned children and their families. It was his dream to grant these families with their wish. To donate or read more about this information, go to

Designers, Celebrities Fight For Darfur

Moved by the rising death toll and the violence in Sudan, Mal Sirrah designer Malcolm Harris and model Lydia Hearst-Shaw organized a fundraiser for Darfur as the Fashion Week finale. Models, who worked for free, hit the runway in clothing and accessories donated by more than 70 designers.

Shoe-maker Steve Madden provided shoes, bags and clothes. Aveda provided hair and makeup.

So, how is this a fundraiser? Clothing and accessories featured in the show are being auctioned on eBay ( to benefit the Save Darfur Coalition.

All of the profits are going to the coalition. The auction ends Thursday.

Designers used four colors, those often associated with Africa: red, yellow, green and black.

Among those contributing were Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Carmen Marc Valvo, Chado Ralph Rucci, Tracy Reese, Catherine Malandrino, Costume National, Heatherette, L.A.M.B., Rachel Roy and Nanette Lepore.

But still, I applaud Harris, Hearst (daughter of Patty), Madden, Aveda and all those involved.

Like George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey, they’re using their power and influence to shine a light on a very dark corner of our world.

A friend asked if I really thought buying a designer dress would make a difference in Darfur?

Yes, I truly do.

A dress, a T-shirt, a necklace, a pin, a scarf can send a signal of awareness.

If the message isn’t clear or universal, hopefully and ideally, the wearer can explain the crisis or the cause.

Back in the office, during a meeting Tuesday morning, I noticed that a male co-worker was wearing a yellow “Live Strong” rubber bracelet.

Since 2004, millions of those awareness bracelets have been sold at $1 to benefit Lance Armstrong’s foundation for cancer research.

That’s just one example of many.

The fashion industry as a whole has raised millions for the fight against AIDS/HIV, to help the 9-11 recovery, to benefit tsunami relief and to aid Hurricane Katrina survivors.

The money from DesignersForDarfur goes to a coalition leading the effort to help end the violence (

Since 2003, more than 400,000 Sudanese have died. More than 5 million people in the Sudan have been displaced and are struggling to survive.

If a dress or a wristband helps even one person — or inspires someone to come up with a workable solution, it’s worth it.

Reminderbands worn on Extreme Home Makeover site

Logan community members “band” together to move personal items from the Pauni home, remove shrubs and weeds from the yard and provide on-site clean up

Bright yellow and black Reminderband wristbands are worn by the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” construction team members and community volunteers while they busily prepare the home and yard for this morning’s demolition of the Pauni home.

“Many of the volunteers who work on filming days will receive an official “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” t-shirt to help set them apart and acknowledge their participation in the project,” said Kent Wuthrich, marketing and public relations consultant for Kartchner Homes. “Countless volunteers have helped us prepare for the demolition and will provided food and security all week out of the limelight and behind the rolling cameras. These bands are a great way for us to build team spirit on-site and acknowledge the many volunteers who will never receive a shirt.”

The volunteer wristbands are bright yellow and have the “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” logo emblazed in black.

The customized silicone wristbands will be given to volunteers beginning Tuesday morning as volunteers sign in at the check-in tent and to many of the catering crews and members of the security staff. Utah State University student volunteers on campus are also accepting one dollar donations for the bracelets and all proceeds will benefit the Pauni family.

Reminderband wristbands are often used for big events and to show support for an individual or cause,” said Jeff Morgan, director of operations for Reminderband. “We are proud and excited to provide this customized wristband exclusively for the Logan volunteers involved in ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.’”

Reminderbands Help Children in Africa Stay Healthy and Happy

This month Reminderband® would like to focus on a group that has taken Reminderbands® to the next level and used them not only as a “reminder” but to support and uplift others.

Africa Is Life Changing, Inc is a group which travels to Africa to teach thousands of orphaned children as well as many women about HIV/AIDS Prevention. Here they use Reminderbands® debossed with the phrase CHOOSE THE RIGHT as an empowerment principle. “ShoSho” Nielsen, the Founder of Africa Is Life Changing, relates, “As we enter the classroom (or just gather children together around a tree in a village) we begin by asking them if they want to be happy. Then we ask them if they want to be healthy and happy. The process of identifying happiness to them is a wonderful opportunity for us as Americans to step into their world of how so little can still create happiness in their lives (and teach us an invaluable lesson for life!).

We then teach them that the way to be happy and keep their bodies healthy is to know what it means to CHOOSE THE RIGHT and to practice it everyday. We focus a bit more on the girl child and empower her to defend her body. We teach them a motto they chant repeatedly; ‘DO NOT TOUCH MY BODY!’ “ It is at this point where Reminderband’s® CHOOSE THE RIGHT wristbands come in. ShoSho indicates that these bands help the women and children remember how to stay healthy and happy.

ShoSho also states, “Reminderbands® are a powerful tool in our program because they leave a reminder on the children’s arms of the experience they had in the classroom in training them up to prepare for a brighter future.”

To learn more about Africa Is Life Changing, please visit their website at Africa Is Life Changing has two expeditions planned for 2007 in June and October and invite all those who are interested in helping to visit their website.

Reminderbands Are a Big Hit For Team Impressions

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.

Thank you,
