About Unity Bands

The inspiration for Unity Bands actually occurred back in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic forced U.S. state shutdowns. It was a profound moment when the streets cleared, highway signs urged people to stay at home, and office parking lots emptied. I felt that what we as a society had worked so hard for was all in jeopardy; threatened to be taken away by an invisible threat. If you look at the tragedies of our time including natural and manmade disasters, the local communities generally rally together well. People help each other. Differences are put aside. Resources pour in. And customized images and symbols are created to unify the local community. COVID-19 is a rare and tragic event that affects everyone on the planet. We all need to share the same home hope that together, we will get through these dark times. We need to fight. Those battling the disease fight for their lives. Emergency services personnel fight to save their patients. Researchers fight for the cure. And we must all fight by taking the proper precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 100% of the profits of the sale of our merch go towards COVID-19 response and research. We also host and coordinate fundraisers to support the cause. Unity Bands is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization. Thank you for your support. Hope. Fight. Unity.
