Sleek Wristbands Annual $1,000 Helping Hand Scholarship

 

Our Mission

Custom silicone wristbands are used all around the world as a way to express yourself or something you believe in. Organizations and non-profits use wristbands to support a cause and raise awareness. For example, a breast cancer organization may hand out pink bands with the breast cancer ribbon along with a motivational text such as “Hope & Courage.” We are proud to be able to provide a small product that can help organizations raise awareness, and give individuals a boost of hope.

We want to support and reward students who understand the importance of helping others. It doesn’t have to be donating money; any one can have a positive impact in someone’s life just by dedicating time and energy. Every year, one student in the United States will receive the Sleek Wristbands Helping Hand Scholarship to help pay for tuition and other school expenses.
