Charity Wristbands: More than a Bracelet
How do you support a noble cause? Do you do it with a few fireworks here and there? Does it always have to be a show first? There are many people that pursue noble causes these days, yet not one of them can tell you what they truly stand for. And its frustrating to see that some of these kids who are putting great causes cannot even understand the idea of standing for what they believe in!
Nowadays, there are many ways to profess ones ideals and beliefs. There are those that do it through their mediums; making commercials on TV is one of the more popular ways to send out an idea. But these days, there are more creative means to send out a message. And that is through rubber wristbands.
You may have seen it already. Silicone rubber wristbands are not actually the type of things that would scream out help save the rain-forest anytime soon. But if the people grow to recognize the colors, the designs and every other accent put onto these wristbands, then the cause will be known. That is because there is a significant factor when people recognize the colors put up by a cause. For instance, when the main theme of your cause is red, then the people will align anything colored red as a sign of support for what you believe in! It may seem vague but more or less, this would be the case.
Through the years, charity wristbands have made their mark in the industry of making a belief system known. Politicians, actresses, athletes have all gone into the fashion of wearing something around their sleeve as a sign of support. In fact, the most recognizable cause that benefited from these colored wristbands was Livestrong, a foundation for cancer awareness. It was created by Lance Armstrong, the multiple time winner of the Tour de France and known as one of the greatest bikers in the world, who was also a cancer patient before.
Colored rubber wristbands may seem like a small thing compared to what a cause may be trying to pursue. But let the truth be told: big things will always come in small packages. It is not enough that you believe in something. You also have to wear it, literally! And what better way to wear the colors of the things you believe in than with rubber wristbands?
