    I want to buy some wristbands, but I'm not sure if I trust it, it looks a bit.. Cheap to be honest.

    Feeling wary about putting in my card details.


    PS I only want a couple, everywhere else I have looked so far sells them by the hundred.

    I'm buying awareness wristbands, for something quite personal to me. Not to wear as a fashion accessory

    Im sure its ok, just looks like they’ve got a bad web page designer.

    if i were to set up a website to scam people out of their money, id do it with something more popular than wristbands.

    If I was getting the charity ones I'd get them direct from the charity so I know they are getting my money. The charities don't get anything with copies.

    Then why not buy it from the actual charity website instead of a false one?

    I realise they were "cool" ages ago, but I'm affected by this now, and as its is extremely rare, I figure even if a few people ask what my wristbands for, its increasing awareness.

    I can't find any ones from a charity for mine specifically, only for other related diseases, which I don't have, although I could get a general one, but then its a bit pointless

    See post above..
    But also I have found an organisation rather than a charity for mine specifically, but its in America and I can't afford shipping for just a couple of wristbands.. And they look really cheesy, I'd rather a plain one than a zebra striped one.

    Well, why don't you just donate money to them instead?

    I dont see the point in having a wristband.

    If you are wary about it then go with your gut instinct and don't do it...
