What do I do with them? Similar to the livestrong bands (think: http://waroc.files.wordpress.com/2006/12/livestrong_wristband.jpg), everybody has a band now for their causes and beliefs, and i've got a collection of like, three. (Huge, I know.)

What can I do with them? They are for things that I can support, but I'm not really into bracelets, especially that style of them.

I've use them as drink markers before. They work well on canned drinks so people can identify which one is theirs. Just remember to remove them when your done with your drink so you don't throw them out with the can. Smiley

Hmm, I'd cut them up and weave them into something. Maybe coasters? Of course if you had piles of them you could maybe make a bath mat (though I think the short length of them would be a problem). Other than that, I don't know... the mother of all Chinese jump ropes?

I like Asbjorn's idea about the bathmat, only I'd assemble it by connecting the bracelets (uncut) as circles.  But maybe that wouldn't be too comfortable on the feet.

 That's a really good idea. I think the ones that are more squishy would be comfy no matter what.

Well this is just an idea but you could somehow melt them togather and put a snap in the bak you could make them into a necklace, purse handle, wormy, whip, book belt, belt, headband (ouch!), etc.  Huh Huh Huh Grin Grin Grin Grin

I use empty cans from canned food items to store my pens and pencils on my desk, and one day I discovered that the rubber "cause" bracelets fit neatly around one of them, so that's where I store them. 

I like my plain silver cans (and they all seem to have a slightly different "grain" under the labels), but I didn't want to toss out the bracelets (I have about 4 or 5).  This was the only place I felt I could actually do them justice - they're seen, but not taking up any additional space, and I can change my mind or rearrange them at any time.
