Fundraising bracelets were made popular ever since Lance Armstrong started sporting the yellow â€œlivestrongâ€ bracelets. Since then, the popularity of these silicone bracelets skyrocketed nationwide. Thousands and thousands of groups have been ordering them to help fundraise for their cause.
These bracelets are great fundraiser items as they can be completely customized in their imprint as well as the color they come in. Many student organizations create the â€œClassâ€ they are a part of as quick sellers to people in their class. For example, seniors of Martin Luther King High School that are graduating in 2011 would put “MLKHS ’11” on their bracelets.
