Fundraising Strategy Notes:

Designers of the Forgiveness™Bracelet for People of Faith

Forgiveness™ is a basic tenet of our Christian faith[1]. From petty day-to-day annoyances to life-changing, heartbreaking betrayals, we are called to forgive, whether we are ready or not.
[1]. Matthew 6:14

The Highsmith Group  serves large churches that are recognized in the October 2022 issue of OUTREACH’s 100 Largest Churches in America. Also included are Reproducing Churches, and the Fastest Growing churches  in America.

IMPORTANT NOTES, please read:

INTRODUCTION to the Forgiveness Bracelet

The Forgiveness Bracelet is offered in two colors; stainless steel (silver) and 14k gold plating.  As a fundraiser for megachurches, monies raised are from five levels that will produce $859, $5,590, $15,900, $53,650 and $122,800.
Note: on average, 50.5% of a congregation are women.


There are 10 Stainless or 14k Gold plated beads on each side         that represent the Ten Commandments.

The red, gold, and green crystals represent Faith, Hope, and Love:  (1 Corinthians 13:13), and the greatness of these is LOVE.

The cross represents your Christian faith to the world.

The two green crystals on either side of the clasp function as

a reminder to:

GO into the world with LOVE and FORGIVENESS in your heart.


1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
2. You shall not make idols.
3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
6. You shall not murder.
7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not steal.
9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10. You shall not covet.


We are living in an uncertain economy with rising prices that are out of control.  We have extensively searched the global market to select a manufacturer who would replicate exactly our exclusive bracelet design, adhere to our quality standards, and provide us the best prices on the planet!”
As an interesting aside, the range of prices was 165% involving our search from Oct 2022 to Jan 23, and from high to low.  At the high end of the spread the bracelet became less cost effective, without significantly raising the price of  the bracelet. We believe this option is less desirable.”
