Fundraising Can Be Exciting with Wristbands!

Fundraising wristbands are, arguably, the fastest growing fundraising trend today! Fundraising wristbands are relatively inexpensive, extremely fashionable, and considerably easier to sell than some of the more traditional fundraising items, such as baked goods or cookbooks. Additionally, fundraising wristbands reach a much larger audience than these older products; teenagers are crazy over the rubber jewelry, and parents and grandparents are open to buying these accessories for their children and grandchildren, especially if they advertise or support a worthy charity or other cause.

Nevertheless, setting up a wristband fundraiser does require a bit of work, and you may be at a loss as to where to begin. Fortunately, in the next few paragraphs, you will learn everything you need to know to run a successful wristband fundraiser. Read on!

How to Acquire and Sell Fundraising Wristbands

The first thing you need to know is how to acquire and sell fundraising wristbands. First, be aware that there are three possible ways to run a wristband fundraiser. In the first way, you simply sell "normal" rubber wristbands that can be purchased at a variety of locations and, themselves, have nothing to do with your charity or cause. However, it is made clear that all profits from the sale of the bracelets will go toward reaching your fundraising goal.

The second way to run this type of fundraiser is to order bracelets that advertise your fundraiser. You then simply give these bracelets away free of charge in hopes that people will see the wristband and, as a result, attend your fundraising event and donate money. Thirdly, you could actually see the bracelets that advertise your charity. This is perhaps the most profitable way because it immediately brings in profits through the sale of the bracelets while it also advertises your fundraiser to others who see the bracelets being worn.

Once you decide which type of fundraiser to have, you must acquire your bracelets. If you are selling "normal" bracelets, you should be able to purchase them at almost any department store. Advertising wristbands will have to be specially ordered, and there are numerous places on the Internet where this can be done. Simply shop around a little to find the best possible deal. Then, find a location to sell or hand out the bracelets and you are ready to begin.

Good luck as you work towards your fundraising goals!
