Custom T-Shirt Effort to Support PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center

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 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.

Custom T-Shirts to Support National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month Statistics show that between 20 and 30% of school-aged kids in the United States have been bullied. The “Be Good to Each Other” campaign invites students – with their class, team, club or even individually – to use CustomInk’s “design online” website to create a wearable bullying prevention message. CustomInk will donate all profits from the sale of custom bullying prevention t-shirts to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Participants can use the voucher code “BeGood” when designing their shirt.

Students are encouraged to wear their shirts throughout the month of October – National Bullying Prevention Month. Or, they may opt to make a custom orange t-shirt to wear on UNITY DAY on Wednesday, October 10, 2012. On this day, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center encourages people to wear orange to show support for those who have been bullied.

“We are thrilled to partner with CustomInk on this campaign to build awareness and raise funds for bullying prevention,” said Julie Hertzog, Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. “We all need to work together to create a safe school environment where everyone feels valued and protected. By wearing orange and coming together on Unity Day, people everywhere can show how much they care.”

Celebrities Join the Cause
A number of celebrities are lending their voice to support the PACER Center cause. Participating personalities include: Ray Rice (NFL Running Back, Baltimore Ravens), Rebecca Black (teen pop star), Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars), Katie Leclerc (Switched at Birth), Kylie Morgan (Opening Act), David Boudia (U.S. Olympic Diver & Gold Medalist) and Entertainment Personality, Micah Jesse.

Each celebrity will design his or her own custom bullying prevention t-shirt using the CustomInk website. Their designs will be featured in the “Be Good to Each Other” t-shirt gallery. 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.

CustomInk Three Hearts Initiative
The Be Good to Each Other campaign is an effort of the CustomInk Three Hearts Initiative, which encompasses the company’s charitable giving and public service efforts. The Three Hearts name was inspired by the company’s mascot, Inky the CustomInk Octopus, because in addition to having eight arms, octopuses have three hearts. The CustomInk Three Hearts Initiative aims to use the power of custom t-shirts to do some good in the world.

Thinking of a Mommy Makeover?

Pregnancy can be hard on your body. Things just aren't quite the same after your little one is born. Believe me, I know! I have had three! Right now mommy makeovers are all the rage.

What does a typical mommy  makeover include?

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Augmentation (or maybe a breast lift) Click here to learn more!

Liposuction can target those "baby fat" areas that no matter how much you exercise, they never seem to go away. A tummy tuck can not only give you a flatter abdomen and slender waist but it can even eliminate stretch marks on the lower abdomen! After breastfeeding sometimes you just need a little "pick me up".

If you are considering some type of surgery be sure to check out This website has many in depth articles about many different types of surgeries. You will find information regarding breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, gastric bypass, Lap Band, hair transplants and so much more! They even have articles with information about dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane.

You will even find information on the cost of liposuction, breast augmentation, hair transplants, etc. Find tips on things you should consider before choosing a surgeon and so much more!

Man Has a Lactation Fetish

What do you expect to watch on TV after 11pm? Well I definitely wasn't expecting to watch a show about a man and his lactation fetish that is for sure. So as me and my husband are flipping through channels we stumble across a show on fetish/addiction.

This couple is very openly talking about the husbands lactation fetish. Apparently, the baby gets first dibs and he gets the left overs. Um... ok. How do they come up with shows like this? I mean who was sitting in a room and said "You know, I think we should find a guy that has a lactation fetish and base a show around him. People will find that interesting!"

Well I guess whoever did say that was right to a certain extent because I couldn't help but watch it. I guess it was out of sheer shock. He talked about how unacceptable it was in society, etc. They even showed him confessing his fetish to a friend where the friend begins just laughing. Granted, it was a totally nervous laugh because in his mind I am sure he was thinking what the freaking hell? 

Well buddy, let me explain to you why it isn't accepted by society... because it is weird. Just plain weird! Women do not produce milk for grown men! The fact that he confessed in their counseling session that it actually aroused him to nurse is just plain sick. 

Off my soapbox now... going to bed. I think I am going to have nightmares about this.
