Local company ForMyReason, a provider of customizable silicone wristbands, announced partnerships with Soldiers‚ Angels, Friends of Freedom and Hope for the Warriors. ForMyReason is selling camouflage and red, white and blue wristbands in the name of these organizations, to assist them with giving back to veterans, current service members and their families. With each wristband order, 20 percent of the sale is donated to the named organization.
“We have created our customizable wristbands with charitable causes top-of-mind,” said ForMyReason Co-founder, Lisa Youngblood. “It is an honor to work with these organizations that contribute to the health and well-being of our country‚s past and present men and women of the armed forces, and their families. We are excited to be offering a way for others in the community to show their support, as well.”
When a charitable cause partners with ForMyReason, a dedicated fundraiser web page is added to the ForMyReason website and a direct link to the fundraiser page to place on the cause‚s website is provided, both at no cost to the organization. ForMyReason has forged partnerships with more than 10 charitable causes, in less than six months of business.
In addition to their online involvement, ForMyReason also participates on-site at charitable events, selling, or in many cases, donating wristbands to the cause at-hand.
Just in time for Memorial Day, ForMyReason attended Friends of Freedom’s 1st Annual Night Stalker 5K Walk for Warriors on May 18 and passed out complimentary wristbands featuring a photo frame that contained the Friends of Freedom logo to participants. Funds raised from event ticket sales benefitted the No One Left Behind (NOLB) Center, which provides a place for veterans to find encouragement, advice and training, and entertainment and activities to help with the transition from military to civilian life.
Free customized wristbands were also provided to Hope for the Warriors and Soldiers‚ Angels for them to distribute for Memorial Day.
