The Be Good to Each Other campaign from CustomInk (www.customink.com/stopbullying) coincides with October’s National Bullying Prevention month.

All profits from the sale of shirts will benefit CustomInk’s non-profit partner — PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center (www.pacer.org/bullying).

Multiple celebrities have signed on to the campaign with custom T-shirts.

“One of our core values at CustomInk is the Golden Rule and treating others with kindness and respect. The Be Good to Each Other campaign highlights our commitment to bullying prevention,” said CustomInk co-founder and president Marc Katz in a news release. “Custom t-shirts with bullying prevention messages unite students, school groups and communities. This campaign gives them the power to take a stand and wear their voice on a t-shirt.”

In two previous years, the campaign has raised more than $20,000 for the bullying prevention programs of CustomInk’s nonprofit partner – PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.

Celebrities supporting the PACER Center cause by designing their own custom bullying prevention shirt include: Super Bowl Champion Ray Rice (Baltimore Ravens running back), 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 Wimpy Kid), Richard Sherman (Seattle Seahawks cornerback), Phil Stacey (recording artist and American Idol contestant), Hayden Byerly and Gavin MacIntosh (The Fosters), Kyle Kleiboeker and Brooke Mangum (USA’s Summer Camp) and Zack Ward (Scut Farkus in A Christmas Story).
