for a lot of people, back to school doesn’t just mean reuniting with friends
and taking new classes, but something much tougher. Every day across the United
States, it’s reported that 15 percent of school absentees are staying home from
school not because of sickness, but because of bullying. Even worse, over 70
percent of students say bullying is definitely a problem at their school.
CustomInk and PACER (National Bullying Prevention Center) have teamed up for
their annual campaign, Be Good to Each
Other. They’ve enlisted celebrities like singer Rebecca Black, actress
Katie Leclerc, and Olympic gold medalist diver David Boudia to help spread the
word. These stars have gone to CustomInk.com and each made T-shirts for National Bullying Prevention Month,
which is coming up in October.
going to customink.com/stopbullying,
you can create your own T-shirt to raise awareness on bully prevention. You can
also buy a shirt created by a participating celebrity. The best part is that
100 percent of the profit will go to PACER to help fund their programs, as they
are a nonprofit organization.
making and buying your shirt (with a parent’s permission, of course), be sure
to wear it loud and proud not only during October, but during the rest of the
year! Bullying is a serious problem, and we are the first step to solving it.
celeb T-shirt design is your favorite? How will you spread awareness during
Nation Bullying Prevention Month? Blog about it, babes.
