It’s now been over a week for those working from home and we understand that can take a toll on your mental health.
- Children aren’t in school and are missing physical contact with friends.
- Key workers are working around the clock to keep up with public needs.
- Elderly are isolated and most likely, lonely.
We provide a lot of wristbands to charities by working closely with representatives; discussing and providing raise awareness wristbands for their specific cause. Since many charities cannot physically host their event, that doesn’t mean they have no need for raise awareness merchandise. We live in a world where technology is second nature. (For some, their phone is surgically attached to their hand.) Now, more than ever, social connection over the internet is very important.
Where do wristbands fit in a world socialising by technology?
Just because a person isn’t in the room with you, doesn’t mean you can’t see them. Video apps such as FaceTime, WhatsApp, and Skype are just some examples of technology improving the way we communicate in isolating times. Social media platforms are also ways to stay in touch with family, friends or even clients. Over the course of the last week, we have been updating our social platforms with information on events; products to help our NHS, and merchandise to bring companies together with clients via wifi.
Wristbands do not need to be in your face physically. Just like charity t-shirts don’t need to be worn out and about in the street, risking people’s health just to raise awareness. Merchandise or charity products can be worn in any situation. Online streaming is a great market for those working from home. Social media allows your news / cause to ‘get out there’. Wearing a wristband while streaming a live video to promote your charity or help others, can bring a new audience to your platform.
Solidarity wristbands: Promoting positive messages to those in need.
Raise awareness wristbands are often silicone or fabric material, which is great because these can be wiped down, drowned in water, and probably go through the washing machine and still survive. All silicone or fabric wristbands are designed either by our customers or we design them in office using customer spec. Charity colours can be matched to the closest Pantone and logos can be on the wristbands providing clients provide a clear, high-res image or vector file.
