Silicone Wristbands for a Cause

Fashion is a great way to raise money. Many organizations have discovered this by selling custom silicone wristbands that sport a selected message. With a variety of colors and designs, friends and supporters can support an organization’s cause while making a strong fashion statement. Wristbands can be pretty popular, not just with the youth, but also for all age groups.

The beginnings

Silicone wristbands were first popularized by the Lance Armstrong Foundation as part of their cancer awareness campaign. The wristbands hit it off in a really big way… and the rest, you can say, is history. Many charities, foundations and even business have jumped into the bandwagon and have used silicone wristbands as part of their fund-raising, awareness and business campaigns.

The Perfect Fundraiser

Silicone wristbands are a perfect fundraiser since it provides great value for money and is eye-catching and can easily be customizable in design. It is catchy yet durable. You can also customize the length of the wristbands to fit your intended market.

Any organization, big or small, (schools, churches, organizations and small groups) can order these custom wristbands online at affordable prices. Of course, the higher the volume of orders, the cheaper the unit cost will be for the items. And, because of the popularity of the items, organizations can sell the wristbands for a dollar, but some can sell these for as high as five or even ten dollars. The more the organization sells the more money it can raise for its cause.

Adults are more than willing to shell out those few dollars – it’s for a cause, after all. And young people are more than eager to wear them because they are colorful. In fact, some have taken to wearing three or more of the same wristbands, or mixing it up by wearing wristbands from different foundations.

Spreading Awareness

More than just a fundraiser, silicone wristbands are effective ways to promote a cause. They are really great movable advertising and awareness mediums. You can emblazon your message on the wristband and your supporters can wear both a fashion statement and a statement of opinion. They can wear them to school, to church or just about everywhere – places where there are a lot of people to see them.

As people get attracted to these colorful awareness bracelets, they also get to see the messages in them. Thus, more and more people are informed about your organization as more and more people buy and wear them.

The key is in having a catchy message. People will see this, get curious and ask the wearer what it’s all about. Then the wearer can explain the message and the organization behind it and may even be able to encourage the person asking to wear one as well. Many people have been inspired and encouraged by the messages in these wristbands. And many people will know about your cause.

The awareness wristbands can continue to do its work even after the fund-raising campaign is over. Supporters can continue to wear it even when the campaign ends. This can still generate enough curiosity that someone can go to the Internet and look your website up. This can lead to more donations given to the organization.

Family sells bands for scholarship for fallen son

As they do at each Law Enforcement Training Center graduation, those gathered to see their loved ones join law enforcement’s ranks observed a moment of silence to honor fallen officers.
On Thursday, that moment was driven home when Michael and Rita Pratt presented one of the graduates with the first scholarship established in honor of their late son, Jason Tye Pratt.

Pratt was an eight-year veteran of the Omaha Police Department when he was shot during a foot pursuit in north Omaha on Sept. 11, 2003. He died eight days later.

“Tye was not great because of the way he left this world but because of the way he lived,” Michael Pratt said. “Tye loved what he did — probably for the same reason you’ve chosen your noble professions — because he wanted to help people.”

After Tye Pratt died, his family began selling custom-made wristbands in his honor and donated the proceeds to the Boys and Girls Club of Omaha. The first bands, which sell for $29.95 each, featured a diamond-etched photo of Tye and a written memorial on aircraft aluminum. Now a variety of photos, etched images and sayings are available.

The proceeds go to the Officer Tye Pratt Law Enforcement Fund at the training center. A $500 grant will be given to one student each session to help them purchase body armor or other necessary equipment.

The recipient from the 164th basic class was Travis King, a 43-year-old father of five who is restarting his law enforcement career in Fremont after serving with the Rollins, Wyo., Police Department. King’s wife also suffers from medical problems, Pratt said as he presented the scholarship.

Pratt said the scholarship was offered through an application process and knew it was going to be tough to decide who should get the money. He said after reading all the applications, he was shocked by the graduates’ nominations of King.

“It was kinda overwhelming,” Pratt said.

He hadn’t expected the men and women applying to do so for someone else but said he shouldn’t have been surprised due to the unselfish nature of those who go into law enforcement.

In addition to the grant, the Pratts presented King with a personalized Tye band featuring the Fremont Police Department’s badge and the words “Thank you for your courage.”

After the ceremony, King said he didn’t know he would be receiving the grant and hadn’t yet decided how he would spend the money.

The Pratts also presented the training center staff with a plaque that features a photo of Tye Pratt and the slogan “These are the bands that tie us all together.”

The plaque is to symbolize the first Tye bands, which were made of solid brass. On Thursday graduate Christifer Folkerts, who received a non-law certification, received one of the brass bands.

The idea that their new professions could cost them their lives wasn’t lost on the graduates. During his address to his fellow students, Jerry Esch of the Hastings Police Department, gave the instructors a plaque as a thank you for all their hard work.

“You’ve saved all our lives,” he said. “It just hasn’t happened yet.”
