Arizona-Based ForMyReason Offers First-Ever Customizable Silicone Wristband With Photo Frame

Perfect for Businesses and Nonprofits, ForMyReason Wristbands Add a Personal Element to the Traditional Silicone Bracelet

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - May 08, 2013) -  Putting a new spin on the ever-popular silicone wristband concept, ForMyReason has emerged in the market with the very first customizable photo frame design. Sold individually or by wholesale, ForMyReason wristbands allow individuals, families and organizations to show the world what is truly important to them.

"While other wristbands out there allow you to support a cause, or print your business' name on them, none of them offer a photo frame or the capability to make one wristband interchangeable," said Jim Youngblood, co-founder of ForMyReason. "The design of these wristbands allows a person to create a strong, striking visual of what their reason is, that can be changed whenever they like, to be worn on the wrist for everyone to see."

Although ForMyReason wristbands are ideal for businesses, special events and families, giving back to the community is a personal passion of Co-founders Jim and Lisa Youngblood. As such, ForMyReason was created to support and partner with local and national organizations that continue to contribute to their communities, donate to research, and help others in time of need.

In a month of business, ForMyReason has teamed up with over five charitable organizations, offering a specific wristband color for each organization. The company donates 20 percent of each sale made in the name of a charitable cause, to the named organization. In addition, the company offers a complimentary dedicated webpage on for every charitable organization that has partnered with them, for the purchase of the organization's custom wristbands.

"We are excited to fill a gap in the market while both offering people everywhere a way to show what their personal reason is, and lending a helping hand to organizations that can use it, locally and nationally," said Lisa Youngblood.

ForMyReason projects partnership with 50 charities by year's end. Popularity of wristbands is evident in examples such as the Nike/Lance Armstrong Foundation's LIVESTRONG wristband that raised $80 million in seven years, or Target's pink breast cancer awareness wristband that raised $600,000 in two months.

Whether it is a family member, pet, business, or charitable cause, ForMyReason is able to help anyone highlight his or her reason; with a stylish and comfortable wristband that can be modified as the customer would like for years to come. This new product eliminates the need to purchase multiple wristbands to show support for a cause, promote a business, or display his or her personal reason.

The silicone wristbands are available in 15 different colors and feature a photo frame in which purchasers can insert an image of their choice. When a customer orders a wristband from ForMyReason, a complete kit is created that includes the wristband, waterproof photo paper and instructions for assembly.

Once the kit is received, customers can follow a simple process to upload, size, and preview the image of his or her choice on the ForMyReason website. Customers are then able to directly download the photo file, print it, cut out the image and insert it into the photo frame on the wristband.

Currently, wristbands are available for purchase online at
