Fundraising for Diabetes

Written by Michele Wheat


If you live in the United States, chances are good that you or someone that you know is affected by diabetes. Diabetes is an umbrella term for a group of disorders that affect a new person every 20 seconds in the U.S. The total cost of diabetes in America, according to the American Diabetes Association, is estimated to be up to $245 billion as of 2012. Diabetes fundraising events can both provide money for scientific research toward a cure and help disseminate information that people need to know about the disease. Wristband Resources can help diabetes fundraising organizations achieve both goals with the help of our custom silicone wristbands. We offer high-quality wristbands at low prices when purchased in bulk, with turnaround times as quick as one business day.

Both organizations and individuals can raise money in support of finding a cure for diabetes. Even if you don't have the backing of a business, you can still run an effective diabetes fundraiser with the help of family and friends. One way to gather funds is to participate in activities such as a benefit walk or run, or you can plan and hold an event on your own. Fundraising wristbands are a highly versatile and unobtrusive promotional option that serve as an effective tool that can enhance almost any fundraising method. They are a good choice for either an indoor or outdoor diabetes fundraiser and provide a popular and economical way to spread your message and bring attention to both your event and the disease. Custom-made diabetes awareness bracelets can be sold to guests at a diabetes fundraiser, or people may raise money by selling them to relatives, co-workers, or anyone who wants to support diabetes research and awareness. Other diabetes funding opportunities include giving away bracelets in exchange for donations of any size or including them in the sale of other items, such as low-sugar baked goods.

The quality of promotional wristbands is always an important factor to consider. Beautiful, professional-looking items will attract more attention and interest. At Wristband Resources, we've given you maximum flexibility in how you design your bracelets. You can select imprinted, debossed, or embossed printing as well as custom logos and ink colors. Bands are also available in a selection of different colors. Our silicone wristbands are 100 percent free of lead and latex to reduce allergic reactions, and they are SDS-certified.
