Going back to school can be a stressful time, especially for children with allergies. More children than ever before have severe food allergies. In fact 6.9 per cent of children under 18 years of age have at least one food allergy. Whether your child is starting school for the first time or is a returning student, a food allergy bracelet (kids id bracelet) can serve as useful tool for helping adults ensure your child’s safety. Let’s face it though! Kids can be choosy when it comes to wearing an allergy bracelet. Designer allergy bracelets are growing in popularity though and many companies are making medical id and allergy bracelets tailored to children. Rayn-Bands is one such business that makes, stylish custom paracord medical and allergy bracelets for both children and adults.
Rayn-Bands is the brain storm of eleven year old Rayn Loyer from Ottawa, Ontario. Rayne came up with the idea for the medical bracelets after creating the initial prototype lanyard as a solution for his youngest brother’s asthma and peanut allergy. After his first bracelet was made, friends and families started requesting orders and it was from there that the allergy/ medical bracelets business was born. To date, Rayn has completed over 1800 orders. The company donates 10 % of monthly sales to various charities such as Canadian Red Cross, The Special Olympics, and CHEO, just to name a few.
Bracelets are custom made to order so they will fit your wrist perfectly; are lightweight, strong and durable; and come in a variety of fun colours to suit your style. There are currently 15 templates to choose from.
And since the bracelets are customizable and lightweight, they’re the perfect alternative choice for toddlers who attend daycare or preschool as well.
What draws me to Rayne-Bands is their more modern look and feel. Teens are a sensitive group when it comes to wearing a medical bracelet. Many of them care about their appearance and the opinions of their peers. Which is even the case with some young adults like my daughter.
I ordered one of the Rayne-Bands for my daughter who is living with a traumatic brain injury. I must say that I am quite impressed with how durable the band is. She is quite pleased with the design and has received lots of compliments.
Overall, I highly recommend Rayn bands if you are on the market for an allergy bracelet or medical bracelet! Perhaps you just want an awareness bracelet. They can make those too. Although there are other alert bracelet options available out there, I’d rather wear something that supports a charity, and a young entrepreneur.
The Paracord Allergy/Medical Alert Bracelets are available from https://raynbands.com and retail for $15 to $30 which is very reasonable price to pay for a product that could potentially save your life!
