Ever since the yellow “Livestrong" wristbands caught on and became almost ubiquitous, people have realized the potential of using silicone wristbands to raise funds, show support for a cause, or promote awareness of an issue. Silicone wristbands are cheap to make and can be embossed with any slogan or name. They come in a nearly endless variety of colors to represent any group or cause.

Silicone wristbands look and feel like rubber, and are comfortable as well as currently stylish. Silicone wristbands are a flexible loop that is stretched to fit over the hand and worn on the wrist. It is really difficult for someone to lose a silicone wristband while wearing it because they do not have ends that need to be fastened together.

Silicone wristbands are cheap to make. Most manufacturers offer very reasonable prices on the custom wristbands they make and often have discounts for customers who buy in bulk. Most manufacturers have a wide selection of colors available and can emboss slogans, phrases or even some symbols on the silicone. Many of the colors are known to represent certain causes or organizations. For example, the yellow “Livestrong" bands represent support for the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer research.

Many groups have followed the lead of the Lance Armstrong Foundation and created their own wristbands. Red wristbands were sold after the tsunami to raise money for the Red Cross. Pink wristbands are used to fund breast cancer charities, and green or camouflage wristbands show support for the armed forces.

The popularity of silicone wristbands is at an all time high. Many organizations make and sell them to raise money or awareness for their causes. Silicone wristbands are an inexpensive way for people to show their support for things they believe in.
