message for supporting a cause, political affiliation or allegiance. Silicone rubber wristbands hit the scene in 2004 when Lance Armstrong - a professional cyclist and Nike introduced the "Livestrong" bracelet that was intended to support cancer funding and research. The Rubber Band Bracelet trend did last long enough for several NBA players to start sporting them, though. Nike, always with a keen eye on basketball fashion improved on the trend by using the silicone rubber that they had previously used on sports watch bands and creating the Nike Baller Id Band Bracelets. Because you can"t really print on silicone, the messages were imprinted or embossed into the rubber and said sports related things like "Baller" and "Player". They came in sets three, often in specific team colors. Many NBA players, most notably LeBron James were seen wearing the Baller ID Bands on and off the court.             order-silicone-wristbands-online-cheaphow-to-make-your-own-silicone-wrubber band holder braceletristbands-at-home

ized by the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The Lance Armstrong Foundation had "Livestrong" printed on the bracelets and sold them to raise cancer awareness. Following the popularity of Livestrong bracelets, other organizations have jumped on board, creating their own bracelets to raise money and awareness for different causes. Each cause is usually represented by a different color. History In May 2004, the Livestrong bracelet was launched by Nike and its advertising agency, Wieden+Kennedy. The yellow bracelets were sold for $1.00 each, as part of the Lance Armstrong Foundation"s "Wear Yellow, Live Strong" campaign. Getting Rubber Wristbands Made Some suppliers may be better than others when deciding to purchase rubber bracelets in large quantities. You should be able to choose the color and imprint on the bracelet. Keep in mind that many colors are already associated with organizations, so you may want to choose a unique color to avoid having your awareness bracelets confused with another cause. You should not pay more than 20 to 50 cents per bracelet if you are purchasing in bulk, especially if you are going to sell the bracelets for $1.00 a piece. Causes Many charities and causes are associated with a specific color and choose to use that color when purchasing awareness bracelets. The Livestrong bracelet is a bright yellow color, so many people now associate that particular yellow color with the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Other colors associated with specific causes and organizations include pink for breast cancer, green for kidney donation, red and blue for epilepsy, blue and white for Hurricane Katrina, and red for AIDS prevention. Warning Do not wear these bracelets if you have a rubber or silicone allergy. Rubber bracelets are a choking hazard and should not be worn or given to children under the age of four. If you have a child in high school or middle school, you may want to ask them their reason for wearing a specific colored rubber bracelet, and make sure the reasons are aligned with a cause rather than a sex act. Rubber bracelets will eventually crack or break over time.             rubber-bracelets
