Pro-life Movement Adopts Wristband Charity
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- Inspired by the success of cyclist Lance Armstrong and the St. Louis Cardinals, two St. Louis siblings have recently jumped on the popular wristband bandwagon.

Like the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s Live Strong bands and the St. Louis Cardinals’ bands for its Cardinals Care charity, Jeff and Maria Geerling chose to promote their pro-life message with a royal blue band made of rubber emblazoned with the word PROLIFE.

“Wanting to fashion them in the same way as the Live Strong wristbands,” the St. Louis Review reported, “the Geerlings contacted Yew Sheng Enterprise Co. in Taipei, Taiwan, to make the bands, complete with the same type font and made of the same material.”

They chose the color blue in honor of the Virgin Mary and have made the bands available to groups across the St. Louis area, although orders have been coming in from as far away as England.

The bands are being sold for $1 apiece with the proceeds going to various pro-life charities. More information about the bands can be found at, www.stlprolife.org/Events/Wristbands/wristbands.html
