Helping you create a message the world can see.

Posts tagged ‘charity’

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.

On her site she has included “easy ways to cope with pain” –

HEALTHY Ways to Cope with Pain.

*Listening to music.

*Exercising.

*Writing down how you feel.

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.

“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.”

“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.

At Reminderband we put precedent on fast and reliable shipping.

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.

Use our quick shipping calculator to estimate the shipping costs of your order.

“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!

Since October 2004, Reminderband has helped design and create over 12,000,000 silicone wristbands.

The part that we take pride in most is not that we have produced this many wristbands, but that these wristbands carry great meaning, sacrifice, and memories for so many of our customers. Our wristbands have become the way to share how you feel about sports, religion, school, fundraising, and people you love.

Sports bring people together; unite different ages, races and walks of life. A wristband can be a symbol. A visual to bring multiple people into one united team. Sports wristbands can be worn by a team with pride, helping them to remember to run a little more, eat a little better, and try harder in all they do as they remember who they are representing. Our custom wristbands are made to stand up to the roughness of any sport as we provide the best of the best in quality in our wristbands. We use only 100% silicone, which lasts much longer than simple rubber. We also provide super fast shipping and offer large and small quantities thus meeting the need of any team you may be supporting.

Symbols are at the heart of every religion. Having a special saying that will lift your spirit in the time of any hardship, kept close with you, provides a gift that goes straight to the soul in a time of need. Having a wristband with a personal message does just that. Religious wristbands are also a great way to raise money for your church all year round and promote a constant awareness of your church’s needs.

Our silicone wristbands are an amazing way to raise money for your cause, school or organization.

Fundraising wristbands will not only raise money for your specific group but they also provide something that people will wear, thus promoting your company or cause for long after the actual fundraiser lasts. This provides for incoming donations every time a person is asked about what their wristband stands for and why that person is wearing it. You can design the wristbands with a logo, phrase, internet address, phone number or any specific need you wish to promote, thus helping your group meet their needs and goals.

We also offer the best in quality, with only 100% silicone bracelets which will last much longer than simple rubber wristbands. This will give your company or cause the best return on your investment, as you will have a product that will last, thus continuing to promote your cause, advertise for your company, and help people to remember what goal they are trying to reach.

Support your country with a custom flag wristband for Flag Day this year! June 14th is a day to represent your country and the freedoms you enjoy! Our red, white and blue wristband is perfect for wearing your country pride on your wrist year round!

When ordering your customizable wristbands, there are a few simple reminders you have to remember to avoid any glitches:

–          Determine the overall design and look you would want your silicone wristband to have. There are a number of design decisions to be made:

  • Text and design. What is the text and design you would like the bracelet to have? Be sure to have a high-resolution copy of the artwork you want included. Also, each side of the bracelet can hold up to 25 characters.
  • Wristband type. There are standard wristbands, as well as heart-shaped wristbands, dual-layer wristbands, silkscreen wristbands and textured wristbands.
  • Color. Choose from Reminderband’s 32 standard colors. However, if you desire to have wristbands of a particular color, Reminderband can create custom-colored silicone bands. There is a minimum requirement of 200 units for custom-colored orders. You also have the option for color combinations and multiple colors marbleized together.
  • Specifications. Wristbands come in different widths (.4” or .5”) and circumferences (5 7/8” for children, 7 3/8” or 8 3/8” for adults. There are also Phat wristbands that are 1inch wide.

–          Determine the number of silicone bracelets you need. Remember, the more you order, the lower the cost per unit. Ask, what is the purpose of the wristbands? What market is it trying to reach? How wide is the scope that the wristbands are intending to reach? If these are for your employees, how many employees are currently in the company and are expected to be added to the team in the near future?

–          Consider the timeline. If you need the wristbands for a particular event, it will be helpful to order them well in advance. Depending on the size of the orders, as well as the type of bracelet being ordered, it’s best to order at least 4 weeks in advance, although standard orders usually have a 1-week turnaround time. Color-fill debossing and very large orders will require an additional week. This will give you with extra time allowances for any possible glitches.

–          Choose a company with a good reputation for quality, speedy delivery and excellent customer service. Reminderband is the company you can trust for your customized silicone wristband needs. Another consideration in choosing a company is the additional charges that may be tacked onto the bill, such as the mold charges or set-up fees. Reminderband does not have any hidden charges.

Reminderband’s personalized silicone bracelets are made of high-quality 100% silicone. This means you, your employees, members or employers can enjoy the bracelets for a long time.
