Travis Rowland's Experience:
Co-Founder at BipolarBands.comJuly 2015 - Present | Portland, OR
The Bipolar Band bipolarbands.com I created a wristband to help people that have bipolar, autism, PTSD, anxiety or for those who just need their space at times, to easily indicate to others that they just want to be left alone for the moment. The wristbands are made out of 100% silicone, they will come in individual packaging and be produced through a company in the United States. Pledge Your Support for my Cause Please help me to spread my cause for bipolar and mental health awareness by pledging your support to my Kickstarter campaign. In exchange for supporting my campaign you will receive a Bipolar Band in the mail; we have different levels of support, each with their own rewards. Some rewards come with a T-Shirt. HOW IT WORKS You wear the wristband at all times, when you are approachable and ready for others to talk to you, you flip it to the green side; when you need your space, you flip it to the red side. It is that simple. Red means stop, green means go; anyone can understand that, if they don't it is easy to explain.
