For years we have been seeing the colored silicone rubber bracelets being worn by children and adults. The significance of the bracelets varies widely. Recently, the school kids used them as a sexual activity statement. Certain colors were associated with particular sexual activities. Fortunately, this fad did not last and many schools banned the bracelets to protect the students. But the more important meanings of these colored bracelets have outlasted the short lived fads and have continued to be used to promote awareness of various health, social issues, and charities.

Need a good way to raise money for your organization without a lot of hassle? There are many fund-raising options that can be used to meet your goals. Unfortunately, many of these options need a lot of coordination, cooperation and salesmanship. To keep it less complicated it is possible to have a direct sales fundraiser with a product that is simple, fun, popular, and just about sells itself. Silicone rubber bracelets are still commonly used for raising money for numerous organizations and charities. Compared to other alternatives, selling silicone bracelets is a simple and profitable venture to help meet fund-raising goals.

Some fund-raising methods can be complicated to organize especially when it is reliant upon volunteers or students that have too much on their plate to devote their time to the cause. Order taking fundraisers, such as the candy selling method, must be monitored efficiently, and sellers have to be motivated to really sell. Sometimes the variety of items being sold can add work to the bookkeeping. For schools tracking students’ sales can be problematic and time consuming. More importantly, schools have been changing their policies to ban candy sales on campus for nutritional issues.

Online fundaising techniques can be even more complicated. An example of this method is to create a web site that sells various products, and out of every sale the charity receives a commission. Several issues can arise with this method; it is necessary to get an agreement with an online vendor to donate a percentage of all purchases, the web site needs to be created and maintained, methods of tracking and secure order handling must be programmed into the website’s back-end, and it would be necessary to advertise the website to stimulate traffic and eventually purchases. For some organizations that already have a internet presence this option may be easy to implement, otherwise if it is necessary to start from scratch, this technique may not be the answer.

Special event fundraisers are probably one of the more common money raising techniques. Some examples of these types include; dances, carnivals and fairs, dinners, plays, and car washes. All demand good organization, planning, volunteers, or hire professional organizers. For such an event to take place, basic responsibilities would need to be addressed, such as; facilities use, advertising, ticket selling, and obtaining volunteers. For business and corporate entities these issues may not be much of a problem, but for schools this type of event can be more difficult to pull off.

For some groups and organizations the issues mentioned above may be easily overcome. However, many prefer the path of least resistance, which is less complicated and less stressful on organizers. Silicone rubber bracelets are a simple product that has lasting appeal, and can be customized to accommodate any organization’s theme and goals.

Comparatively, selling custom rubber bracelets has one of the lowest initial up front costs necessary to get started. The low price per unit decreases as the order quantity goes up, and colors can be as varied as needed. Also, by keeping the same message or symbol on every bracelet will help keep costs down, and still give you color changes if desired. Purchasing the custom bracelets is simple, and probably the more difficult job is to choose the appropriate color theme and message that matches your organization or school’s goals. With this product your fundraiser can be profitable and manageable which will help your organization meet its fund-raising goals.

Today, due to worldwide exposure, people recognize the purpose of these rubber bracelets and are more willing to give their support.

Don’t believe it is too late to take advantage of the colored rubber wristbands concept for promoting an issue. Since the 2004 debut of the LIVESTRONG campaign started by the Lance Armstrong Foundation those yellow wristbands are selling extremely well. By 2005, 55 million wristbands have been sold, which is just a phenomenal achievement. Fortunately, the foundation did not patent or copyright this awareness wristband concept which I understand was a conscious decision, allowing other organizations and groups to utilize the same idea to promote their own causes.

Today, we can see various colors used to symbolize support for many other charities and causes. You will see pink rubber wristbands to promote awareness about breast cancer. Red wristbands have been used for D.A.R.E., HIV, and heart disease issues. White bracelets are being used to advance Peace on Earth and Right to Life ideology, as well as a few other issues. Nearly every color of the rainbow has now been adopted to symbolize and represent the numerous organizations and ideologies that are being advanced to the world. It is not uncommon to have multiple groups using the same colors, because the messages embossed on them will be the distinguishing factor that will set them apart from the others.

Using colored rubber wristbands to advance or sell an idea or product is still a very viable method to promote your ideology, charity, or product. As inexpensive as these wristbands are, it would be in your organizations best interest to consider them for your promotional needs.

He wanted to remind everyone to support cancer research. In a short time, when you saw someone wearing a yellow bracelet or wristband, you knew what it meant. Not long after this phenomenon, many other charities and organization started to customize their own trademark colors and messages. Later we started seeing pink bracelets that were to symbolize support for breast cancer. A simple inexpensive concept can symbolize so much more then the few cents it cost to create it.

As noble a reason as charities were to use these awareness bracelets, it wasn’t the only practical application for these bracelets/wristbands. Many other groups, organizations, and companies found other uses for the bracelets; schools began using them to promote school spirit, music groups used them to promote their band, and businesses saw them as an easy way to create brand recognition. Even churches have been known to use them to promote the gospel by embossing a pray on the bracelet.

Today these awareness bracelets are well known throughout the world. Very often if someone sees you wearing one of these bracelets they will ask to read what it says or ask what it represents, and that is exactly what you want, isn’t it?
