Your Band4Hope can be worn always, even in bed and when showering.
Minimal opening and closing of the band will ensure that it lasts longer and travels further, connecting more people and spreading more hope.
The new Band4Hopes have their IDs engraved on the outside on the copper and so minimal care is required.
However, If you have one of the original Band4Hopes (with its ID on the inside), the zinc on the inside of the band can become tarnished over time. If this happens, rub over the ID using a standard pencil eraser et voilà! In extreme cases where this does not work well enough, immerse your band in coca cola for a few hours and then rub the area with kitchen paper to dry and remove the gunk.
We love the look of a well travelled Band4Hope as its letters become more defined and it gains character. You can see when a Band4Hope has history and a great story to tell.

The Band4Hope design was inspired by the carved geometric cuffs of the Himba people who Band4Hope co-founders, Lachlan and Lucie, met in Namibia. Himba bangles are given as tokens of love, brotherhood, good luck, virility and wisdom.
History & Empowering Properties
Throughout history and across civilisations, copper has been worn for its believed empowering properties. In pre-colonial Africa, copper bands were the favoured currency and have been symbols of tribal status and style ever since. In fact, copper’s power as a talisman is noted throughout the ages in everything from Greek literature to Sanskrit. Read more >
Copper & Zinc Combined: Some believe that the light electric flow, which forms when these two metals are combined, stimulates the acupuncture points throughout the body and gives the wearer a feeling of optimal well being.
Add to this all of the hope and history imbued in each Band4Hope as it travels from person to person and you’ve got one meaningful piece of wrist candy.
