We've all felt it - the silence as we wait for the news. Is everything
okay, or are our lives about to be turned upside down?
About a year ago, when we first designed this Strap for Childhood
cancer awareness month, the idea was simple - for every one we sold,
we'd donate one to a child (or family of a child) who's currently
battling cancer. We weren't able to find a place to donate them on
time so we postponed the release til this year instead, working to
find a better partner to get these in the hands of people who could
use them the most.
Over the past year, something happened. I watched a friend of my
wife's go through the diagnosis and loss of her child in a matter of
months. Words can not express the level of pain I felt in just seeing
what the family went through - as a father of three myself, even the
thought of losing a child is more than my heart can bear. Watching it
happen made the concept behind this ZOX we had designed so much more
important to me - it brought the true heartache of childhood cancer to
light in a way I will never forget. Now, as we start of September, I'm
determined to do something meaningful.
With the help of a member from our very own ZOX community, we're
working with Beat Childhood Cancer, a wonderful organization with over
50 locations that specializes in research, awareness, and ultimately
the survival of children fighting cancer. For every one purchased,
we're donating one for them to give to a child (or their family) as a
token of our solidarity with them. It's our way of giving a little hug
when they need it the most - a reminder that they are not alone in
this struggle and we're here, cheering them on.
One thing that's always been important to all of us here at ZOX is
standing up for the underdog. I've always believed that the value in
the growth of our brand was most powerful because it let us bring
awareness to causes that needed attention - the scale we've seen over
the years has allowed us to change the lives of hundreds of thousands
of people around the world, all because of a little bracelet that
uplifts and encourages.
My hope for you, with this wonderful ZOX, is two-fold. First, I hope
it keeps the little ones who need prayers on your heart. Second, I
hope it reminds you that nothing can hold you back. That you're
braver, stronger, and smarter than you think.
Love you guys.

-We mill our super soft elastic using polyester made from recycled water bottles at Repreve®. Each ZOX takes roughly one 8oz water bottle out of our ecosystem and turns it into a little hug for your wrist - the perfect reminder to help you make it through your day.
-All ZOX include a laser engraved serial number on the tag for authenticity. You'll find a matching serial number engraved on the collectors card that's included.
-We believe kind words can change the world, which is why every elastic ZOX we make is reversible. On one side, you'll find beautiful art from artists all around the globe. On the other, you'll find a wonderful little written reminder. Wear the words on the inside when they're just for you, wear them on the outside when it's something you want to be reminded of each time you look down.
-Given the collectibility of ZOX, each piece we make is hand packed in a small, resealable bag made from recycled material. This bag keeps your favorite ZOX fresh when they're not being used and is helpful to keep them organized alongside their collector cards.
-Handmade with love
-Every order provides a year of clean water to someone in need through our partnership with the Thirst Project.
Our ZOXLOX Keychain converters are inspired by ingenuity from Zoxers in our own community. In our VIP group, members started posting pictures of clamps that turned their ZOX into keychains. Unfortunately, the clamps were 1-time use and would ruin their ZOX. So, we stepped in to create something amazing.
ZOXLOX are easy to use converters that will turn your ZOX Singles or Straps into the best keychains in the world. All you do is remove the screw, insert your ZOX wristband, and push the screw back in so the wristband is looped over it. Then, screw it back into place and just like that, your ZOX wristband is now a ZOX Keychain. And the best thing about it? You can easily swap your ZOX wristbands in and out to change your keychain any time you feel like it.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
