In 2001, Lauren’s Hope introduced the very first interchangeable medical ID bracelet, and overnight, people who had grudgingly worn, or even refused to wear, the standard, plain metal medical ID bracelets of the past suddenly had attractive, durable, stylish options they could enjoy wearing and change to suit their mood, outfit, or activity.
Today, more than 500,000 people wear Lauren’s Hope medical IDs every day, and we’re proud to say that number just keeps growing.
Our ever-expanding line of medical alert bracelets, necklaces, anklets, charms, bag tags, and more is always on-trend, made to the highest quality, and guaranteed to meet your needs and expectations.
Who Is Lauren?
We’re often asked who Lauren is or where the name “Lauren’s Hope” came from. The original interchangeable medical ID bracelet was made for Lauren, a 13 year old with diabetes who refused to wear medical ID jewelry because, as she said, ‘It’s ugly and draws attention to my illness.’ So we set out to design a medical alert bracelet that Lauren, and the millions of people like her who avoided medical IDs when they really needed them, would actually enjoy wearing.
We believe that our employees and customers are our most important assets and that it is a true honor to help improve the lives of people with all manner of medical conditions. We espouse a culture of positive encouragement, staff empowerment, and quality customer service. Our team members are proud to create and provide quality, stylish medical ID jewelry to our many customers, and we enjoy coming to work each day.
At Lauren’s Hope, however, we do more than make great medical ID jewelry. We endeavor to make the world a better place, one bracelet at a time. We have donated more than $100,000 to the JDRF, and we support a variety of other nonprofit organizations, including the Who is Carter Foundation, FAAN, Epilepsy Foundation, Special Olympics, National Hemophilia Foundation, Harvesters Community Food Network, Angel Flight, and many more wonderful organizations that benefit people the world over.
