Picture above is from the "Traveling Wall" we did in Califon, NJ last Oct. I presented a check and a 452 bracelet, made by Wrist Story, to the organizer of the event.
The larger picture shows part of my "crew" at a local fundraising event for the military at a nearby airport.
Both events were very successful due in part to Wrist Story bracelets...!

This has been an excellent way to raise funds for our annual veterans run in central Mn.. All our proceeds go right back to the vets as we donate to various groups who support our veterans. The bracelets, as crazy as it sounds, contribute approx. 2-3 k annually. Carin supports the vets and is very helpful, and a joy to work with. We had a record year last year and raised 75k for our vets. we will be looking to break that record this Aug.. Great way to raise funds!! People wear the bracelet with pride, and show support for our vets.

I’m with the Oak Creek, Wi. VFW Post 8482. We sell these bracelets and 100% of the funds raised goes to the Stars and Strips Honor Flight. In four years our post has donated $26,000.00. On one of our $10,000.00 donations there was a $10,000.00 match from a local business to bring the total for the Honor Flight up to $36,000.00. These bracelets are a fantastic way to raise funds for our Veterans. Thank you.

Many thanks to you and Wrist Story. Your bracelets will live on because of ours and other auxiliaries that keep our Veterans number one. We have used the profits from bracelet sales to pack backpacks for the county homeless with 27 essentials, like soap, washcloths, gloves, etc. Thank you again for honoring our Veterans and others through your bracelet stories.

I wanted to inform you that, because of your American Veteran bracelet, we were able to donate $2,000 to Wisconsin's Stars and Stripes Honor Flight. This will sponsor 4 veterans at no charge when flights resume in the fall. The Lodge purchased the bracelets about a year and half ago and sold the bracelets for $5.00 each at various Lodge events. The pandemic delayed our donation until this Memorial Day weekend. The quality of your bracelets, along with additional donations, helped make this fundraiser a success. In the future we will explore your product lineup for future fundraisers.

Good afternoon, WSP. I just wanted to thank you for your Veterans’ bracelets. We have raised over $5000 in a little over three weeks for Jason March, a severely wounded veteran. We are getting very low on bracelets and will be ordering 200 more!

The Marine behind the table is reaching for the bracelet display. Those customers who don’t buy a T-shirt will usually buy a bracelet. We sold 81 American Veteran bracelets today at a four hour event!

We are very pleased with the outcome of our Shrine Bracelet Fundraiser! … never, in a million years, did we think we would sell that much product, selling to both men and ladies!
Thanks again for your product sample to get us interested, and the overall ease of ordering. As someone who is always looking for new creative fundraising ideas, I loved this one and the results our Fundraising Committee has experienced.

We are Arnold-Heath Memorial VFW Post 5151 encompassing the towns of Streamwood, Hoffman Estates, and Hanover Park, IL. We use the wristbands as a fundraiser for our post. Funds received from the sale of the wristbands go to helping Veterans and helps fund our Operation Airlift where we send care packages to active duty military members. In addition, we have provided wristbands to Veterans from the Blind Unit and Residential Care Facility at Hines Hospital as a token of our appreciation for their sacrifice and service to our Country. We also sponsor a “Cruise Night” where we offer the wristbands for sale.

I originally just wanted to purchase 1 of these bracelets for myself. After contacting wrist story I realized that wasn’t possible, the only way to get 1 for myself was to start to sell these as a money raiser for a local non-profit. I reached out to friends who had lost their son in Iraq to see if I could sell them and donate the money to the Bryan McDonough Military Heroes Foundation. They gladly accepted and Barb’s Bracelet Brigade was born. I now have ladies who help me sell these bracelets and we’ve raised $1850 since December 2016. Thanks to the great team at Wrist Story Products!

We sell the American Veteran bracelets year around and then we go out to Buckley Air Force base in Aurora Colorado, find out if there are any veteran families in need, purchase two toys age gender for each child. Then the family meets us at Buckley Air Force Base to pick up the toys for their children. We also sell your bracelets to support the Marine Corps League Broomfield Detachment to give boxes of food including a turkey or a ham with all the trimmings at Christmas time.

Mary Beaston – Elks of Oho The Ohio Elks purchased 100 Elks Story Bracelets and took them to our spring Convention the first weekend in April. We set up in the registration room Friday and, as the Elks came in to get credentials, they passed our table which displayed our bracelets. We made a sign showing all that is on the bracelet with the proceeds going to our Veterans at the Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky Ohio. Done deal!!! By the beginning of the next morning, all 100 were GONE!!! We said, if someone asks you what all the Elks do, just show them your bracelet!! In fact, this gentleman chose to wear two.. when you are wearing two and you meet someone and they ask what the Elks are all about? you extend your hand and show them the bracelet and at the same time, the 2nd bracelet is facing you so you can share the Story of the Elks.
Gayle Huffman – Kansas Honor Flight We just wanted to send a note to let you know how please we are with your service. I appreciate you and your staff for always getting orders out timely and accurately. I volunteer with the Kansas Honor Flight which is an all volunteer organization dedicated to sending our WWII, Korean, & Viet Nam veterans to Washington D.C. to visit their war memorials at no cost to the veterans.
Wrist Story has been an awesome fundraiser for us. In two & a half years, we have grossed over $40,000, $5 donation at a time. We’ve sent a flight with this fundraiser and hope to send two next year with the new products you are offering. Love the poppy bracelet & I think a lot of ladies will too.
Again, thank you for your awesome service to my organization. I love doing business with you!
