Tysons Corner, VA – September 6, 2012 – CustomInk, the “design online” custom t-shirt company, today announced the launch of its annual Be Good to Each Other campaign to stop bullying. 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. The Be Good to Each Other campaign is an effort of the CustomInk Three Hearts Initiative, the company’s charitable giving and public service arm, which strives to use the power of custom t-shirts to do good.
“This campaign is important to us because we believe in the Golden Rule. CustomInk tries to treat everyone with compassion and respect and encourages others – especially kids- to be good to each other,” commented CustomInk Co-founder and President Marc Katz. “Custom t-shirts have the power to unite people in positive ways, and creating and wearing bullying prevention designs is a great way to promote kindness and tolerance.”
This is the second year CustomInk will undertake the Be Good to Each Other campaign. In its first year, the effort united 4,000 people against bullying through custom t-shirts and raised thousands of dollars for the bullying prevention programs of CustomInk’s nonprofit partner.

Over the past five years, the popularity of “mud runs” — cross country races with obstacles — has exploded. It’s estimated that more than one million people have participated in this new genre of adventure sport. The increasing popularity of the sport has led us to create special resources just for mud runners to make their own mud run uniform t-shirts, or “mud duds” (available at www.customink.com/mudrun).
“Mud runners across the country are training and getting ‘down and dirty’ with their friends and family. CustomInk t-shirts have the power to unite them into a team for the big day,” commented Marc Katz, CustomInk’s president and co-founder. “Completing one of these races is an achievement to be commemorated, and a mud-stained, custom t-shirt makes the perfect trophy!”
