Unity Day T-Shirt 2014
As millions of students head back to school, CustomInk, the “design online” custom t-shirt company for groups and occasions, today released the results of a national survey on teens’ experiences with bullying. The survey finds that bullying is still a major issue among American teens in the 10 largest metro areas, with 83 percent saying they have been teased or bullied, and 72 percent saying they worry about being bullied by peers. While bullying is a common concern, teens also appear ready to do something about it, with 72 percent saying they would unite as a group to show they are against bullying (e.g. attending an event, joining a club, or social media activities).

To help teens stand up against bullying, CustomInk is launching its 4th annual Be Good to Each Other bullying prevention campaign. 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. CustomInk will handle the printing and fulfillment at cost, allowing 100 percent of profits from the sales of bullying prevention shirts to 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.

Celebrities Unite for Bullying Prevention

Ink of the Week winner

“Be Like Brit Race Team at Falmouth” wins this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

“We had 10 amazing runners from the Be Like Brit Race Team who ran in this year’s Falmouth Road Race! The team fundraised over $10,000 to support the children in our orphanage in Haiti!

The Orphanage was built in loving memory of Britney Gengel, who perished in the 2010 Haiti earthquake while on a service trip through her college, Lynn University.

Be Like Brit honors Britney’s memory and legacy of compassion to those less fortunate, and was inspired by a text message she sent to her mother just 3 hours before the quake claimed her life.

“They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and they work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are all so appreciative. I want to move here and start an orphanage myself.“

After two and a half years of construction, Be Like Brit was dedicated and blessed in an ecumenical celebration of life and love on January 5, 2013. On what would have been Brit’s 23rd birthday, Be Like Brit brought in their first child, a three year old boy. Today, Be Like Brit is home to 48 children, and employs more than 50 full-time employees. Hundreds of American and Canadian college students and other volunteers visit or volunteer at Be Like Brit each year. Through the service work of others, we can all be more inspired to “Be Like Brit”.”

Ink of the Week winner

“For Pete’s Sake” wins this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

“My father, Pete Burke, passed away suddenly in April. He lived at the beach in Brigantine, NJ, so we decided to have a seaside memorial/party for him in August. His 15 grandchildren, five children and over a hundred of his friends, neighbors and family attended the event.

My dad was quite a philanthropist, and donated much of his time and business expertise to the LEAP Academy Charter School in Camden, NJ. After his passing, his workplace, friends and family started the Peter. J. Burke, Jr. Scholarship Fund at the charter school to help graduates fulfill their dream of going to college. We sold the shirts at my dad’s memorial to raise money for the fund and to continue my his legacy. Hence, the motto on the shirt, “For Pete’s Sake”.

Pictured in this photo are his grandchildren and great nieces and nephews. We took a few serious photos and then told them to be silly. It’s much more fun to be silly, and their Pop-Pop would’ve loved it!

The shirts were a huge hit. The process of designing them was simple and stress-free. We received them faster than I predicted.

We plan to have this event each year to celebrate my dad’s life. I will be designing a new shirt for each party, so we can continue raising money for the scholarship fund.”
