In recent years, custom wristbands have made a comeback. Schools and other organizations have found that they are the best way to raise money quickly for charity. The more they buy, the lower the price of each wristband. They are easy to sell because people like to contribute to valuable causes - and show that they are contributing.
Even celebrities see the power of wristbands. After the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, Lady Gaga raised about $3 million for Japan's relief efforts. To this day, wristbands are still outstanding fundraisers for schools, bands and non-profit organizations.
