Since 1949, the United States has observed Mental Health Awareness Month as a way to encourage education, awareness, and outreach resources across multiple outlets and organizations.The oft-associated green ribbon serves as a reminder and a symbol of support for those suffering from mental illness, as well as a way for organizations to share a message of compassion and understanding for such conditions. Those organizations also serve as advocates to offer resources and to mitigate the stigma often tied to mental illness. From suicide prevention to many other causes, groups of people across the United States are working to further their causes.
Today’s feature focuses on a writer whose books are part of a mission to stop bullying.
11-year-old Brenden Santos has published not one, but three books to date.
Says Santos, “I have a few missions in life and I have a campaign against bullying.” Santos began working on his three books at age ten and has since created a website, www.againstthebullying.com.
To help spread his message, Santos has distributed wristbands among the community, sharing the essence of his campaign “only one me”. He has been making some waves with his progress, and recently met and had dinner with the Lt. Governer of North Carolina.
Santos has big plans for the future of his anti-bullying campaign:
“I am trying to get bully awareness to be one day in August and one day in September because when school starts is when bullying is at its peak.
I want everyone to wear my wrist bands and look at them and remember there’s only one me and that means you.”
You can learn more about Brenden’s mission against bullying and his books at his website.
Santos plans to continue his efforts with his writing and sharing his mantra: “I hope that one day I can have enough money so that I can buy millions of wristbands as I would like to give them away free to everyone in the world so that not only children but also adults who get bullied can remember we all matter.”
We wish Brenden and his cause the very best of luck!

“My son’s elementary school decided that wristbands with the school slogan would be a great spiritwear prize and fundraiser. An economical cost, speed of delivery and quality were all critical as time and money were tight, yet everyone wanted a fantastic result. Reminderband hit the mark on all points….we could not be more delighted, and so are the kids. Thank you!”
“I order bracelets to help keep the memory of my niece alive and it is so comforting to see so many people wearing her bracelet that I order from Reminderband. I have people come up to me all the time wanting to know where they can get one so I always carry them with me so that I can give them one. Thank you Reminderband for helping my cope with the loss.”
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.
Wristbands with a message need to last as long as you want the message to resonate in the minds of all those who wear them. All of the customized silicone wristbands you see below are made with 100% silicone. This ensures that they will not break or tear easily and can be worn for months or years with little to no wear.
Reminderband® silicone wristbands are made of 100% industrial strength polished silicone. We are so confident that you will love the quality of our silicone bracelets that we back it up with a GUARANTEE. Our custom silicone bracelets are of similar quality to Lance Armstrong’s Live Strong bracelets, and are stronger and more durable than rubber wristbands or rubber bracelets. Rubber bracelets and rubber wristbands that are made of rubber break much more easily and wear out much faster than our silicone bracelets do. For more detailed information visit our bracelets specifications page.
We ship our wristbands via USPS or FedEx. If receiving shipping via FedEx, you must have a physical address as FedEx doesn’t ship to P.O. boxes. To ensure proper delivery, we do require a signature. FedEx usually leaves a door tag notifying you of the delivery attempt if no one is available to sign. Simply follow the instructions on the door tag, and FedEx will leave the package at your door at the next delivery attempt. After three delivery attempts, FedEx will return your order to Reminderband. If you would rather have the package left without having to sign for it, you can go into your local FedEx office at any time and sign a FedEx release waiver.
For International orders, we offer FedEx International Priority which gets the order to our international customers in about 14 days from the time the order is placed.
“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. 🙂
