A lot of people have been searching for information about pink wristbands that are similar to LiveStrong yellow wristbands, but specifically support breast cancer research and awareness. Target Corporation has developed the Target Pink Breast Cancer Wristband to benefit The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The wristbands are imprinted with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mantra "Share Beauty. Spread Hope." and cost $1.00 each. They were sold in packages of 10 via Target.com and Amazon.com beginning September 2004.
Target decided to come out with new awareness bracelets for 2005. The Target Pink Charm Bracelet Set has replaced the original Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Wristbands. Instead of the classic rubber bracelet, Target has gone with thinner plastic bands in three different shades of pink. On these bracelets, you can hang charms that say "Hope," "Love," "Courage," "Mother," "Sister," and "Friend". These charms were included with your purchase.
Target's Pink Charm Bracelet Sets were much more widely available in the second half of 2005 than the original Breast Cancer Awareness Wristbands were. At the time, we recommended that people ordered the Charm Bracelet Sets unless they were willing to wait for delivery of the Breast Cancer Awareness Wristbands, which were often back ordered.
Update: Target Corporation's breast cancer awareness program typically begins in late September, and stock is eventually sold out. This was the case in 2004 and 2005. Neither of these products is currently available at retail, despite their popularity.
