A few days ago a website was started by a young girl named Kenzee Walker. The site is called Teens With Hope. Its a support group made by teens, for teens all across the globe. Her hope is that eventually the site will grow and become bigger and better, helping others, and saving lives. Kenzee would just go online, and type in common interests such as suicidal, suicide, self-harm, cutting, cutter, cut, etc. to find forums where she could offer her help. This was the beginning of her interest in creating the site.
She created an email, gave it to those in need, and spoke with over twenty plus people. 80% of the people that she spoke to were suicidal and self-harmed. Some of the teens were younger than me. It broke her heart and she knew something had to be done. So, with the help of a friend she set out to save lives.
As soon as she had time she began work on the site and got it up and running in within ten hours. The site isn’t perfected yet, but Kenzee is working to improve it everyday. Kenzee contacted our team at Reminderband to create wristbands to help her further her cause. Her courage and strength has inspired us and we have created custom wristbands for her cause.
The bands read: Smile. Because you’re alive. A mantra we believe everyone can appreciate.
Much better than a bumper sticker, a wristband showcasing your club or group will show it off with class, pride and style. Not only will you be able to promote your club, but you will also have a reminder of any goals you are trying to meet and accomplish.
Our wristbands are a great way to provide fundraising to meet any need your club or group may have and help support any cause they are fighting for.
At Reminderband we offer small and large quantities providing for any need you may have whether it is just five bracelets or whether it is 200 or even 2000. We also provide unbeatable quality, using only 100% silicone, and provide the fastest service.
“Your company is great! The setup process online is one of the simplest and quickest I’ve seen. The reminder bands came in quicker than most of the items that I order from other vendors. I am amazed with the positive response that my students have had with your product. We use the bands both to market our martial arts academy to prospective students and to reward our current students for their efforts.”
Our team has heard many heart-wrenching stories over the years and our wristbands have represented those tales, memories and people. The tornado that devastated Moore Oklahoma shattered an elementary school’s front glass window tore off the roof and the walls were punched in. A car laid flipped inside the main hallway.
The storm caused as much as $2 billion in damage, and it damaged or destroyed 1,200 homes in Moore and Oklahoma City, affecting about 33,000 people, the authorities said Thursday.
We want to remember and honor the victims of the tornadoes deadly path and their families.
“Summer is almost here…….time for family reunions!A great way to unify your family is to provide every family member a wristband from www.reminderband.com. For price, durability, and convenience, silicone wristbands cannot be beat. As a bonus, they are waterproof. What summer activity doesn’t include boating, swimming, or a water fight?!Utilize the tips below in formulating your wristband:
1. Put a special phrase on the band that has significance or can take on significance for the group.
– It could be clever such as “Made in USA with German Parts”.
– It can be a word that has meaning to the family such as: “Hansen Legacy – 2013”
– It can state the number of people in the family such as “JOHNSON – 52 Strong.”
– It could state geography such as “BENSON – 8 states, 2 continents”.
– It could simply state the name, and year such as “LARSEN – 2013″2. Have one unifying color for the whole group OR3. If a large group, have one color for each family unit. Having one color per family unit helps others keep track of who belongs to which family.
4. Use the bands to play games such as the following:
– Wristband Toss – player tosses the band and tries to get it to loop over a water bottle
– Wristband Bottle Lift Relay – Family units compete by tying string to four areas of the band. The group works in unison by pulling the band to make a large enough circle that it can wrap around a water bottle. Once wrapped around the bottle, the group transports the bottle to a ‘Finish Line’
– Wristband Roll – See who can roll the band farthest
– Wristband Rubberband Contest – Place band on thumb and pull back with other hand and let go. See who can flip it the farthest.
– Wristband Word Contest – Break the family up into groups or individuals. See who can make the most words from the letters on the band. Clarify if they can use the letters from the inside of the band or not
5. Make wristbands a tradition for your family, and encourage members to wear their bands from previous years. After a while, you’ll have members looking like the young woman below. 🙂
Cancer survivor Ben Teller isn’t giving cancer the time of day. In fact his non profit makes that quite clear! Rightly named “Cuck Fancer” Teller’s foundation fundraises to cancer awareness.
When Teller found out he had cancer again he was already a two time cancer survivor and finishing up his fourth year at the University of California at Irvine. He came home to a voicemail from the doctor; unable to fathom what was coming next.
Teller and his mother listened to the recording that said, “Ben, we want you to know that we found something abnormal on your scan.”
Teller had already battled cancer at ages 18 and 21 and had his life stopped by Hodgkins Lymphoma; the possibility that finally living normal life might be taken away didn’t even cross his mind. Then the doctor told him they had found a mass, on the left side of his chest off of his heart. Teller recalls having things due for school; his mother sadly informing him he wouldn’t be going back. Teller took the news with stride and no one had yet to utter the word “cancer”; after he woke from his surgery his outlook changed.
Teller recalls the day of the surgery, “I was in really high spirits, I’m at the hospital, not worried about the anesthesia, I wake up…I have a tube in my chest, I’m not breathing on my own, I have a seven-inch scar on the side of my chest, I have a tube hanging out of me, and I don’t know what’s going on. I have zero idea and I’m in so much pain, I can’t talk, I’m having an allergic reaction to the morphine, and it hits me, this is serious. That’s when I realized that [the cancer] was going to do something to me physically, and that’s when it started to affect me mentally.” – (New University)
This was Teller’s turning point; the point at which his foundation began to blossom. He started by selling cancer bracelets and grew immensely from there. We at Reminderband are honored to be his wristband company of choice.
Teller said, “Well, as I was looking for companies to make my bracelets, the top hit on google with the best customer satisfaction was Reminderband. I was introduced to a man named Sean, who I still order my bracelets through today. We talked about what I wanted, and we sent a few samples back and forth and finally came up with the lime green with the white writing. It has been a huge hit amongst the cancer community. The color of my disease is lime green, so it was fitting that Reminderband had the perfect color to match. I have never had one problem with Reminderband and will continue to bring my business to them.”
Teller’s strength, ambition and goals for the future has brought him toe to toe with stars like Halle Berry, Will Ferrell and Ellen Degeneres. Teller has decided that cancer will not control his future. Reminderband greatly admires this survivor and send our love and support!

Colored wristbands are not just for kids and teens. They can also be for adults for like to make a strong statement or support a cause. These silicone bracelets were popularized in 2004 by the Livestrong bracelets, which started the trend of using customizable wristbands to promote a charity or a cause.
So if you’re wondering if promotional wristbands can also be used for your company or organization, here are a few reasons why:
Personalized designs. With Reminderband, you don’t need to order large amounts to get the bracelet design you want. You can order just 1. Of course, the more you order, the more you save on the cost for every unit. You can have fun designing your customizable wristband and find satisfaction in being able to create a unique product.
Versatility. These custom silicone bracelets can be worn by kids and adults alike. This can be used by companies who want to advertise or by civic and non-profit organizations who want to increase awareness for a certain cause. Families and groups can also use these for reunions, festivals and fairs. Concert or event organizers can outfit their team with these bracelets for added security and to restrict access to key areas only to authorized personnel. These bracelets can also be used in memory of a departed loved one or to be reminded of your group’s motto. You can even use these wristbands to make self-affirmation statements. Some enterprising couples have also been known to have uniquely designed wristbands as one of their wedding favors.
More advertising mileage for your budget. These highly affordable awareness bracelets provide more bang for your advertising buck. Promotional wristbands only come at a minimal cost per unit so that it can easily be distributed as giveaways.
Great for fundraising. These are not called fundraiser bracelets for nothing. With its minimal per unit cost, this can be given as gifts to generous donors. In turn, these donors get a beautiful bracelet that they can proudly wear so that they can proclaim their support for their chosen cause.
Durability. These wristbands are made of 100% silicone and will last a long time. They can be worn in the sun, in the shower, in hot or cold weather. These can be worn for days (or even weeks) without the need for taking them off. For silk-screened bracelets, the paint used is designed to stretch with use so that it does not easily peel off. Debossed wristbands are even more durable, as the wordings and designs are molded into the bracelet. The design is recessed into the bracelet itself.
Coolness factor. Wearing Reminderband’s bracelets ups anyone’s coolness factor. With its attractive color and unique design, you and your customers can proudly wear these and feel confident. Kids love how the wristbands give them a sense of belonging. It’s like proclaiming “I am a fan of…?” “I support ….”
Fun. Kids and kids at heart love how the bracelets exude a certain air of fun. Wearers can also mix and match wristbands of various colors.
Reminderband’s wristbands are available in over 30 colors! You can choose a color that truly reflects the significance and meaning you want your silicone bands to convey. Your color choice will make your wristbands unique and special. If you are undecided over the choice of color, here are a few tips that may help guide your decision:
Logo: consider the colors in your logo, you can mix the colors or choose only one, or consider colors that are complementary to those in your logo. It’s a straightforward fool-proof way of picking your colors.
Associated colors: if your group already has associated colors such as those of a school or sports team, consider using those same colors for your wristbands. It just makes sense.
Correlations: consider the colors that correlate with your object of interest, like a cause. An ecology forest initiative, for example, would naturally correlate with pine green custom bracelets. A save the ocean campaign would correlate easily with shades of blue.
Mood: consider the mood or feeling you want to evoke – pink is great for breast cancer, for example, because pink is traditionally associated with what is ultra-feminine. In the same vein, yellow might evoke cheer. Red might bring to mind boldness or courage. White, or light blue may easily arouse a sense of peace or calm. These colors are just traditional guides, but you can make your choice of color something really all your own.
Assortments: Consider ordering custom bands in a variety of colors for things like gifts, free giveaways, and party favors.
(Remember that Reminderbrand offers the option to mix colors in strips and sections or create effects like desert camouflage or marbling!)
