St. Petersburg, Florida (PRWEB) May 2, 2009
Since the year 2000 Sticky Jewelry (StickyJ.com) has specialized in selling personalized jewelry to customers all across the world. But in 2006 Sticky Jewelry began to focus its attention on expanding the medical id department of their business after founder Lori Torman noticed that there was a definite absence of fashion in the styles of medical IDs. Sticky Jewelry now carries a full line of medical id bracelets, dog tag pendants and charms but their introduction to the medical ID industry was selling medical ID bracelets designed specifically for children. This full line of interchangeable nylon sport strap bracelets was created specifically to meet the needs of kids who don't want to wear boring, uncomfortable traditional medical bracelets.
The bracelets were an immediate success! Because of the tremendous response to the "Sport Strap" Sticky Jewelry broadened its horizons and began designing appealing medical jewelry for teens and adults as well. What makes this medical jewelry so unique is its fashionable jewelry that people actually want to wear. If the already developed medical lines weren't enough, Sticky Jewelry will engrave a medical symbol on most of the non-medical jewelry items they sell, giving every customer the opportunity to have a Medical ID that fits their own personal style.
Though Sticky J is focused on providing fashionable personalized jewelry at a good cost, the company recognizes the importance of community. Among other projects and organizations, Sticky Jewelry has recently teamed up with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to meet the needs of real people in the community. By working with the JDRF, Sticky Jewelry is striving to meet both the immediate needs of diabetic people within the community (by providing them with life-saving tools such as medical identification jewelry) and the long term need of finding a cure for diabetes - JDRF's mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. On April 18th Sticky Jewelry employees participated in JDRF's "Walk to Cure Diabetes" to help raise awareness and funds for the organization. Additionally, other members of the Sticky Jewelry staff set up a table to inform people about medical IDs and field their questions regarding medical identification jewelry. The company elected not to sell their products at the event, but instead offered coupon cards that had been developed specifically for the participants in order to give them something valuable to walk away with.
This was the second JDRF "Walk to Cure Diabetes" that Sticky Jewelry has participated in and their plan is to become even more involved with the JDRF foundation in the future. The hope that Sticky Jewelry has expressed is to be more than just a provider of a temporary fix (via medical alert jewelry) but to be a part of the solution as well [please visit the JDRF website for more literature on finding the cure]. Sticky Jewelry would like to thank the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and all of the volunteers for putting on this event. By everyone coming together the community successfully raised awareness and support, progressing towards a cure.
