Brooke Bakes a Difference for No Kids Hungry!” and “Dirt Doll Mountain Bike Shredders” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

When 12-year-old Brooke saw an ad for No Kids Hungry on the Food Network, she became inspired to run a bake sale to raise money for the cause. She was diagnosed with Celiac’s Disease a few years back and ever since, has been baking her own gluten free desserts. Brooke and her closest friends and family wanted special shirts to wear the day of the event so they turned to CustomInk for some super-soft raglans. Everyone loved the custom “Brooke Bakes a Difference” shirts and many people asked where they could get one of their own. The local news even wrote an article on Brooke and she’s planning to do the event again next year.

The Dirt Dolls began with a few passionate women and has since evolved into a 100+ team of shredding divas. These ladies get together every Monday night in Boise, Idaho, to ride mountain bikes and to spread their goal of inspiring women to pedal. For over seven years, they’ve been designing and ordering custom gear for their group – everything from performance shirts and jerseys to trendy tank tops to snapback hats. They love the “ease of working with CustomInk and the ability to do custom orders so each lady can get the color of shirt they like best.”

Reunion at Bear Lake

Every two years, the Norby’s gather at a big house for a few days. Most recently, they visited Bear Lake in Utah.
