Custom Bracelet Fundraising

Custom bracelet fundraisers are a hugely popular way to raise money for charity. Plus, they are very in demand with teens. These popular silicone bracelets can be customized for any fundraiser or charity cause by stamping them with a positive slogan that is impressed in the rubber using a machine.

Silicon fundraising bracelets come in pretty much any color in the rainbow, with the brightest, most vibrant colors catching attention for many worthy charity causes.

For example:

  • Pink silicone bracelets promote breast cancer events
  • Blue bracelets are often used to raise money for sports team like football or baseball teams
  • White fundraising bracelets are commonly used for church group and humanitarian causes
  • Yellow charity wristbands are commonly seen on the wrists of animal supporters, and of course yellow is also the color of the very popular Livestrong charity rubber bracelets

Regardless of your cause, you can choose almost any color for your fundraising rubber bracelets, along with your phrase.

If you are having trouble coming up with a positive phrase to go in conjunction with your fundraising cause, try one of these on for size:

  • For cancer awareness organizations, try slogans like “Get Screened” or “Be Aware”
  • For sporting team charities, try sayings like “Go Team”, “Get in the Game” or have the actual team name printed on your rubber bracelets
  • For animal rights organizations, sayings like “I Love Fur” or “Animals Have Rights”
  • For church groups, try slogans like “Got Peace”, “Go with Faith” or “WWJD?” (What Would Jesus Do?)

So what do you do need to do to get started?
