Hosting the Fundraiser of the Year

From getting branding exposure to helping with a fundraiser and promoting products and services, giving back to the community is hugely beneficial for our business. But, it isn’t about what we get in return for our efforts. It’s all about who we are helping.

Building trust, helping those in need and understanding our community are where we try to put our focus. We invest in our community by donating our time and products. So, ring a bell and give a hearty hello to our latest donation recipient: Ladies Leukemia League, Inc. and their annual Fête de Noël fundraiser.

Ladies Leukemia League, Inc.

The Ladies Leukemia League, Inc. is an organization of 225 women who have dedicated themselves to the purpose of raising funds for leukemia research. Proceeds from early fundraising efforts were donated to the new leukemia ward at Charity Hospital in New Orleans and also to local leukemia research efforts. This later expanded to include leukemia research efforts in the Gulf South region, which includes Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

Ladies Leukemia League, Inc.

(Since the society’s inception in 1969 they) have raised over $3.6 million in “pilot” or “seed” money for research scientists working in leukemia and lymphoma research, or related fields. The organization was incorporated in 1971 and became known as the Ladies Leukemia League, Inc. (LLL).

LLL, Inc. has gained the reputation of being an organization of dedicated women volunteers making a genuine and meaningful contribution to finding a cure for leukemia. The annual luncheon and fashion show, always enhanced by various drawings for special prizes, has had recent attendance of close to 1100 people; it has grown bigger and better with age.

DYNA Satin Ribbon: Continuous Printing

DYNA Satin Ribbon has a medium soft feel and a slight sheen that makes it easier to work with than regular acetate ribbon. And, as it is 100% polyester, it won’t fray or tear. Customize this beautiful ribbon choice with a logo and text repeated along the entire length of the ribbon to make it the perfect choice for finishing baskets, boxes, bags and floral arrangements.

Melba Bruce, Co-President of Ladies Leukemia League, Inc., said, “The ribbon donation will help defray the cost of LLL’s Fête de Noël, the premier fundraiser for the holiday season. (We are using it) to support bells distributed to guests, Wednesday, December 11, 2019, at the fundraiser.”

LLL ordered red ribbon with a gold imprint with “50th Anniversary Ladies Leukemia League 2019” printed on the ribbon to celebrate the 50th year since the inception of LLL.

Fashionable Ribbons & Spina Bifida

Fashionable Ribbons and a donation to Spina Bifida Texas

From getting branding exposure to making ribbons fashionable and promoting products and services, giving back to the community is hugely beneficial for any business. But, it isn’t about what you get in return for your efforts. It’s about who you are helping.

And, here at Coller Industries, we understand that helping out in our community is fashionable. The best thing we get back when we give is the knowledge that we have helped someone. Investing in the community by donating our products is one of our best forms of marketing. But again, it isn’t just about the marketing possibilities; it’s about the people. So, no matter the need, every donation we make comes with the knowledge that what we do is important for everyone.

custom badge ribbons are a fashionable item to have at any event

Elizabeth Rivera, Project Coordinator for the SBTX FashionABLE event, provided this excellent description of the organization and event.

FashionABLE (as in “I am able”) is a one-of-a-kind program that started 12 years ago. SBTX partners high school design students with children who have disabilities. The high school students are tasked with creating a garment specific to the child’s needs. Children with physical disabilities and their families face challenges in many areas, and this is frequently true where clothing is involved. These children often have self-esteem issues, especially with their physical appearance as it may not be what society considers the ‘norm.’ Their bodies may not be proportional and finding clothing that fits is difficult.

Mobility issues require that many children use orthotics or prosthetics to assist them in their daily activities. These devices are often bulky, which also poses a problem when trying to find clothing. Many of these children have issues with fine motor skills and buttons and zippers sometimes become an obstacle when they try to dress independently. Some of the children are totally dependent on their caregivers for all their needs and finding clothing that is easily slipped on and off is sometimes difficult. Our program was developed to address these issues in an innovative way.

Creating a “FashionABLE” Community

Understanding our community needs teaches that no matter the setting, there are things to constantly focus on to keep it healthy. In order to help people feel that they belong somewhere, we support and manage these insights. And this comes with accepting each other and the diversity of those around you. This community understanding makes us responsible for those around us. This community responsibility not only aids those in need, but assists everyone influenced by any actions in that community. And, we think that is just like this organization: fashionable!

Donations are one way that makes us more responsible in our community. And, building trust in our community is not only a requirement but also the best way to maintain any community. This unified trust is why we, as a company, are always looking to help out in our neighborhood and surrounding areas.

Rosette Ribbons and Their Versatility

These wonderful rosette ribbons aren’t just for awards!

With all of the available custom options for rosette ribbons, these decorative awards are far more useful than most people give them credit. Yes, they are commonly used as award ribbons, but there are so many other uses! Here are some great suggestions for these perfectly versatile ribbons.

But first, what are rosette ribbons?

There are three parts to these ribbons.

wheaton rosette ribbons in a frame for displayFirst, the rosette. The rosette is the fanciest part of these ribbons. Customize each layer (tier) with different colors. Each rosette comes with one to four tiers of ribbons, depending on your rosette choice, tucked and pleated to embellish their look. This stacking of ribbons is what makes rosettes stand out from any other award ribbon. And, it gives them their character and name. The way the tiers are stacked makes these ribbons look like a rose!

The second part is the center button. Each button comes as cello, gold-rimmed or satin. And each one can be customized to fit any need you have. Add a logo or a stock graphic to make your ribbon stand out. The button can also have a custom color to match the rosette. This part also holds the rosette together to give it the final custom touch.

And lastly, the streamers. While the rosette is what makes these ribbons fancy, the streamers may be the most crucial part. Personalize any of these rosettes with text, logos and other details. There are options of one, two or three streamers with one color imprinting. The colors are also chosen to match the rosette and button. And, this is where you add any custom text to explain the award or other use for your rosette ribbons. Add names, titles and achievements to the streamers to meet any of your needs.

Awards and Such

From equestrian events to fairs and classrooms, Rosette Ribbons are perfect for all awards.

Rosette Ribbons are great for place ribbons. So, when you have a classroom contest or a need to represent several athletes for the quality of their work, choose from a variety of styles and colors. Most ribbons represent up to nine places and also participation awards. All our rosette ribbons are high quality and can be ordered as custom or stock rosette award ribbons.

And, these rosettes are perfect for awards for any shows or event types. From sports, hobbies and animals to horticulture, business achievements and education everyone will want a rosette as their award for a job well done. With the fancy tops and long streamers, the high-end look will indeed show recognition for doing well.

Customize each ribbon to your needs by choosing a logo or graphic to go with the sporting event or school activity. Then, provide a message for each streamer and individual names for each award. No matter your choice, each award recipient is sure to treasure such a unique gift.

Decorations for Parties and Other Events

Equestrian Themed Wedding Rosette RibbonsRosette Ribbons are not only for awards! Use them at your next party or other event. And while awards are perfect on a rosette ribbon, customize this ribbon choice to meet any need. From table decorations to fun props for a photo booth at a wedding, rosettes are more versatile than you know.

Don’t limit your thinking when it comes to using ribbons during any event. The key here is to make sure you display the correct message. And make sure that your color choice matches any theme you might have. Using each part of the rosette, customize these fancy ribbons to match your event.

From a wedding to a business convention, rosette ribbons can be the answer to almost any decorating need. Use them as a fancy place setting or a way of directing people into the right banquet room in a hotel or other venue.

Corporate and Personal Gifting

Use your custom rosette ribbons to celebrate someone meaningful. Whether it’s for your business or a family member, a thoughtful custom gift is sure to make someone feel special. From birthdays to Valentine’s day and Christmas to Halloween, every holiday needs a little ribbon.

Instead of traditional wrapping, use a rosette to replace the average bow on a present or party favor. Or use these fancy ribbons as the actual gift. Recognize anyone for a job they have done well. Or for just turning a year older. And, no matter the reason for the gift, your recipient is sure to remember the thoughtfulness that went into the customization of this unique ribbon.

So, remember the next time you use rosette ribbons that they are so much more than meets the eye. And, if you need help choosing the right rosette, try this!
