If you’ve ever participated in, or organized a charity event, there’s a good chance you are familiar with awareness wristbands.  Not only are these wristbands a great fundraising tool for your event, but they are a great way to show support in a highly-visible way, unite supporters, and raise awareness for a cause near to your heart.  We’d like to take a look at 3 successful and popular awareness wristbands, and highlight how wristbands can be the secret ingredient for a great fundraising or charity event.

1. Livestrong Wristbands

The Livestrong wristband was the first wristband that boosted the popularity of silicone awareness wristbands throughout the world.  Created in 2004, to help raise money for cyclist, Lance Armstrong’s foundation to help fight cancer, this wristband was found around many wrists for years, to help show support for loved ones fighting cancer.  It is estimated that between 2004 and 2013, 87 million Livestrong wristbands were sold worldwide.1

2. Breast Cancer Wristbands

Breast cancer wristbands come in a variety of styles and designs, ranging from plastic to Tyvek®, and even a stretch nylon material.  The most widespread, however, seem to be those made of silicone.  Worn most frequently during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by breast cancer survivors and to honor the life of loved ones impacted, these wristbands are a great way to unite supporters at Breast Cancer awareness events. 

PDC offers the largest variety of PDCPink Breast Cancer Awareness Wristbands, available in various materials, pre-printed designs, and custom options that are perfect for fundraising campaigns and charity events, breast cancer walks/runs, guest identification, or even make gifts for customers/patients to show your commitment to the cause. 

2. Red Ribbon Week Wristbands

Red Ribbon Week wristbands have been popular for some time among adolescents during Red Ribbon Week, which occurs each October.  Red wristbands are passed out during school assemblies and events, warning adolescents about the danger drugs and alcohol can cause in their lives.

PDC offers both silicone and vinyl Red Ribbon Awareness wristbands which can be worn all week, or all month long to serve as a reminder and sign of unity to live a drug-free life.
