At my school, the only ones i've ever seen are the yellow livestrong and the white nike ones. I know there are new blue ones that say "no compromise" on them from andy roddick's charity as well.

to be honest I think they are all real, the pink breast cancer one definately is, and i'm sure the ovarian cancer is also, its just they all jumped onto the great market lance armstrong managed to target with his 'livestrong' campaign, and it's obviously a very effective and evidently 'cool' way of getting the message across...and it's making alot of money for worthwhile causes....good luck to them

I've seen pink and blue along with the yellow livestongs. I've also seen a pink Target breast cancer bracelet, and I hear there is a blue AIDS bracelet, I dunno who it is sponsored by though.

I don't like to "wear my heart on my sleeve," if you will. I donate to several charities, but I always ask them to keep their paraphernalia (except for the World Wildlife Fund calendar, because it RULES). I figure it saves them some money, so with hope my donation, and others, will stretch further.

i am glad that these bands have become in a way 'cool' because it raises awareness.i love what they stand for but i hate the way people are exploiting these good causes. when most wristbands can be bought for a £1 and sold on ebay for £5 this is a large profit which could benefit less fortunate people.

I have seen people selling them for £20 and I'm not been a drama queen but it makes me feel sick to see people making money out of things like tsunami and breast cancer etc.
