John Mayer fans banding together to raise money for NCIRE

Taylor Hamilton Fund

We just wanted to provide everyone with a quick update on the wristbands sold to benefit Taylor Hamilton. We officially sold out the remaining 2010 Summer Tour wristbands and all orders are being shipped this week.

We were able to raise $400.00 for the Taylor Hamilton Fund, which is absolutly amazing for something that was thrown together at the last minute. You guys seriously rock for that… WOW!

We know its been said a thousand times, but John’s fans really have the biggest hearts. So again, a big THANK YOU to everyone who purcahse a wristband and donated. It means a lot.

**CONTEST** WIN IT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT!

Hi All,

As some of you may know, we have been working on a new wristband.  We are SUPER excited about the new style (trust us, you will LOVE it).  We have a few other things changing too that we are stoked about… we really can’t wait to tell everyone! 

Here is the thing.  We can’t show you the new style yet. We also can’t give you any information about when it will be for sale.  BUT, what we can do is give you the chance to win one before you can buy it!

It’s pretty simple.  On Friday, April 12, head to www.jmwristbands.com and click the “CONTEST” page.  Enter your name and email address into the form and hit SEND.  It’s that easy!

We are giving away TWO, so that’s TWO lucky people who will get to rock one of our newest designs before they are available to everyone else.

You have until midnight on Sunday, April 21 to submit your name for the drawing.  Winners will be contacted /announced on Monday, April 22. 

Small print stuff:

* Only ONE entry per person please (we will only count one entry per person, so make our lives easier and only submit once)
*Winners will be contacted via email on Monday, April 22
*Contest is open to everyone! (US and International)

Good Luck!

Brenda, Sue, Kristy and Drew

#helpJohnhelpVets

So, you want to show John Mayer you are helping him help Veterans right?
(The answer is YES!)

Well, this is how YOU do it, JMWristbands style:

1.  You go here and get your raffle tickets (Remember, all proceeds from the raffle go to NCIRE, so even if you don’t win, you are still making a difference). 

2.  You grab something to write on and make a sign saying “I’M HELPING JM HELP VETERANS”. 

3. You put on your best face, hold up your sign and say cheese

4.  You take to the social media outlets and post your picture on Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #helpJohnhelpVets.  (or you can email your pics to contest@jmwristbands.com)

5.  You spread the word using the hashtag #helpJohnhelpVets on Twitter, Tumblr, and/or Facebook

Pretty simple right?  Well, we’re not done!  We have added a special incentive for submitting your pictures… WRISTBANDS! (Duh.)

1.  We share your picture with the world here

2.  We will then look and see who you told about #helpJohnhelpVets

3.  If we see that you have tweeted, blogged and/or posted or shared on facebook using the hashtag, we will send you a wristband!

Yep, that’s right, we will send you a limited edition super awesome JMWristband! We would love to show you what they look like BUT we are currently waiting on approval from John on the wristband design.  Don’t worry though, as soon as we have the approval, we will let everyone know what the wristband will look like.  For now, you will just have to trust us! 

**There will be limited quantities, so we must limit one per person, and once they’re gone they’re gone, 

Now let’s all get out there and show JM we are helping him, help Veterans!

 

Peace, Love and John Mayer-

Brenda, Drew, Kristy and Sue

Free wristband autographed by @jhnmyr for whoever deserves it most

Hello All!

We have some bad news, some good news, and some GREAT news.   

Bad news first:  We did not make our goal of selling 400 wristbands by July 1st.   This means, we still have an unclaimed JM signed wristband. 
 
Good news:  We raised just over $3,000.00 for NCIRE in a little over a month!
 
Now, who wants the GREAT news?
 
We asked our friends at Mick what we should do with the last signed wristband and the answer was simple: give it to someone who deserves it!  So we thought, what better way to decide who deserves it than by asking you all?  Beginning Friday, July 6th, JMWB is giving you an opportunity to win the final John Mayer signed love (v.) wristband!   Here is how this will work: On Friday, July 6th, you can go to our website and nominate someone who you think deserves to win the 4th wristband autographed by John.  We aren’t looking for who has the most nominations, but who genuinely deserves to win, so put some thought into writing your nomination!    You cannot nominate yourself!  Nominations will be accepted through Friday, July 20th.  At that point, we will read all the nominations and choose our top 3 favorites.  Beginning Monday, July 23rd, the top three will be posted on our website and we will open up the voting!  You will be able to come to our website and vote for your favorite through July 27th.   The person with the most votes will be announced on July 28th and will be awarded the final John Mayer signed wristband! 
 
 
Peace, Love and John Mayer-
Brenda, Sue, Kristy and Drew
 
 

More ways to win our last JOHN MAYER signed Wristband!

The JMWB peeps LOVE to be able to give things away so…here is the deal: 

Thanks to our wonderful friend Erika at JMMA, we have 8 of the large vinyl Born and Raised Stickers to give away.  Right now we are only 24 wristbands away from hitting 300!  And once we hit 300, we get to give another JOHN MAYER SIGNED wristband away (best prize EVER!)

This is how it will work:
Every THIRD person to buy a wristband between now and the time we hit 300, wins a sticker.  Thats it, pretty simple!

Reblog, RT, Share on FB.. GO!

-JMWB

Current Count: UPDATE!

Now go to it!
