Awareness bracelets first started gaining popularity in 2004 through the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The bracelet they used was a yellow silicone wristband meant to raise support for cancer research. Soon after, the silicone wristbands had become popular with many other charities, from the ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign to the BBC’s ‘Beat Bullying’ campaign.

Nowadays, you can find many different groups selling silicone bracelets ranging from national causes and organizations to local groups and clubs.
