GONE LTD. Insect Repellent Products
What started as an informal movement by the six-time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor, Lance Armstrong, has not only raised inconceivable amounts of money and awareness with its inspiring message - these ever-present yellow wristbands have also become the must-have accessory of the last few years.
As a tribute to Armstrong's fight against cancer, the Lance Armstrong Foundation began selling yellow wristbands engraved with his mantra, "Live Strong" in an effort to raise $5 million to help people living with cancer. The fundraising effort began in May 2004 and has already surpassed the original goal, having sold over 25 million wristbands to date. (www.laf.org)
Since the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s bracelet, rubber bracelets have been endlessly imprinted with personal messages, logos, and names, which have sent the bracelet soaring past its original purpose as a token of charitable donation, and into the realm of a fun, personal, and fashionable accessory. There are now over 1,000 different types of these colorful wristbands being sold by retailers, organizations, fashion suppliers and designers worldwide – and there has been no lull in their demand. This proves that this bracelet explosion is more than a trend - it is a revolution!
GONE bands go hand in hand with this accessory craze- making them fun for you and your family to wear – but they also bear a purpose and a message:
In constructing the band, countless researchers agreed that the “band” itself in its shape and varying uses was the best apparatus for insect repelling. It is adjustable, easy to wear and remove properly, and can be placed in effective proximity to the most bite-sensitive areas of the body.
The band’s message is simple: In a day and age where protecting oneself against the many threats of insects has become of grand global concern, the band represents the care one takes for themselves, their friends, their children, and loved ones.
