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 â€˜Make Poverty Historyâ€™ campaign to the BBCâ€™s â€˜Beat Bullyingâ€™ campaign.
Nowadays, you can find many different groups selling silicone bracelets ranging from national causes and organizations to local groups and clubs.
