PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - Third-grade teacher Marilee Root believes the power of words to encourage young minds. She makes bracelets with motivational words of encouragement on them to help motivate them.

Mrs. Root calls the bracelets Gee Bands. She makes them herself, sometimes as early as 4:30 in the morning before she heads to school. Even adults buy the Gee Bands with their favorite positive message.

Mrs. Root says over the past year, she has hand-made more than 3,000 gee bands, shipping them all over the country.
