NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – New Rochelle native and current Baltimore Ravens' running back Ray Rice has partnered with T-shirt design company CustomInk for an anti-bullying campaign.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month and CustomInk has launched its second annual “Be Good to Each Other” campaign, which encourages student groups and others to buy and wear CustomInk's bullying prevention T-shirts in an effort to raise awareness.
All proceeds from the sales of CustomInk’s shirts go to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
Rice and several other celebrities have joined with CustomInk to help generate momentum for the effort. American Olympic diver David Boudia, American Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin and pop singer Rebecca Black are just a few of the dozens of celebrities involved in the cause.
“Everyone is affected by bullying. It can damage, change or even end a life and there is no excuse for it, ever,” Rice said. “I want to encourage kids to be leaders, not followers, and to reach out to someone who may need a friend. It’s so important to be kind to one another, and I will do my part to say that loud and often.”
