My Love for BIC Bands

running with my BIC Band
My collection of Bic Bands

I am in love with BIC Bands!  I found out about them through SkinnyRunner's Blog. about a year and 1/2 ago. I was looking for something to keep my hair out of my face and I had tried a few different head bands and they didn't work for me...they would slip, I would get a head ache ect... Well, once I found BIC Bands I was hooked!  They come in so many designs and styles and they work! Finally a headband that keeps my hair back and stays in place! I am obsessed with them.  My husband gave me a gift for my birthday about all the reasons he loves me and one was my obsession with the headbands that I always wear.  One of my favorite things is that money from each order is donated to a charity that is chosen each month..

new bands that I just received (SkinnyRunner Special) I love the denim one!!!

From the BIC Bands website

These amazing headbands started all as a fundraiser for my run with Team In Training. I was looking for a way to raise the necessary funds to run my first half marathon. I had started to make some handy dandy headband that didn't slip because I was cheap and crafty~ friends said they'd buy them, so I decided to try my hand at making and selling them. My small little venture began and I started sewing. I donated the profits to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. OVER $1000 was raised through the sale of B.I.C. Bands!
Because B.I.C. Bands were such a hit after my race, I decided to keep making and selling the bands, and keep giving back to those in need!

WHAT DOES B.I.C. Bands stand for?

B.I.C. Bands~ Because I Can Bands ~We raise funds because we can…for those who can’t so that one day they will!
From the beginning days of making B.I.C. Bands for my run with Team In Training, giving back has been at the heart of the business.
Each month we donate from the sale of every band to a different charity. Check out the facebook page to see who we're helping this month!
