Each celebrity will design his or her own custom bullying prevention t-shirt, which will be sold on CustomInk's new t-shirt fundraising platform, Booster. Celebrities also will harness the power of social media to engage their fan bases in active conversation throughout National Bullying Prevention Month in October and to promote UNITY DAY. Presented by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, UNITY DAY encourages people in schools, communities and online to send a message of support to students who have experienced bullying by wearing orange on Wednesday, October 9th. CustomInk will sell PACER's orange UNITY DAY shirts as well as the celebrity-designed tees, with all profits benefitting the charity.
This year's Be Good to Each Other campaign incorporates the power of Booster (www.booster.com). CustomInk's Booster is a new way to fundraise and raise awareness for a cause through the online sale of custom t-shirts. Booster eliminates upfront costs, and campaign organizers do not have to collect money or manage inventory. Those who wish to promote a cause simply design a shirt, identify the cause that's meaningful to them and promote the sale of their shirt through Booster's easy-to-use tools like email and Facebook sharing. The Be Good to Each Other campaign will utilize Booster for the sale of celebrity and UNITY DAY shirts, and students and other groups are encouraged to launch their own Booster campaigns to fundraise for the National Bullying Prevention Center, or their own local bullying prevention cause. CustomInk handles the printing and delivery of t-shirts, and sends a check to the cause at the close of the campaign.
