NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- New Rochelle native and Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has announced he will design a custom t-shirt to be sold as part of CustomInk's "Be Good To Each Other" anti-bullying campaign.
Rice, along with other celebrities, will design t-shirts coinciding with the back-to-school season and October’s National Bullying Prevention month. The campaign encourages student groups and others to take a stand for kindness and tolerance by designing and wearing custom bullying-prevention t-shirts.
All profits from the sale of shirts will benefit CustomInk’s non-profit partner -- PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center which unites, engages and educates communities nationwide to address bullying through its resources, according to a press release.
Other celebrities who will design a custom t-shirt for the campaign include Janel Parrish ("Pretty Little Liars"), Katie LeClerc ("Switched at Birth"), Laura Marano (Disney’s "Austin and Ally"), Kaitlyn Dever ("Last Man Standing" "Justified"), Beau Mirchoff (MTV’s "Awkward"), Karan Brar (Disney’s "Jesse" and "Diary of a WimpyKid"), Richard Sherman (Seattle Seahawks cornerback), Phil Stacey (recording artist and "American Idol" contestant), Hayden Byerly and Gavin Macintosh ("The Fosters"), Kyle Kleiboeker and Brooke Magnum (USA’s "Summer Camp") and Zack Ward ("A Christmas Story").
This is the third year the Virginia-based CustomInk will undertake the Be Good to Each Other campaign. In two previous years, the campaign has engaged thousands of supporters and raised more than $20,000 for the bullying prevention programs of CustomInk’s nonprofit partner – PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
CustomInk will handle printing and fulfillment at cost, allowing 100 percent of the profits from those sales to go to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
