Creating a better world through Kindness, Acceptance, and Inclusion is not only important to me, but to make the world a better place. I am so happy to partner with CustomInk to share this message.
Pete and I have always said that above all else, we want our children to be happy and kind to others. I think they go hand in hand, the more kindness you put out into the world, the happier you are. We also feel like our travels are opening the girls’ eyes to new places, people, and cultures. This is important because you have to understand the world outside your normal surroundings to be able to accept people that are different than you are. We hope that we are giving them the tools to be good bullying prevention experts and spreaders of kindness.
I know that we have all faced times in our lives where we could use a friend or someone to make us feel like we belong. I love that more people are talking about bullying and inclusion than in the past. This is what is going to make bullying a thing of the past. So many parents are helping their children understand what kindness towards each other is important all the time.
When I heard of CustomInk’s Be Good to Each Other campaign, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it. I love that their goal is to unite people of all ages by encouraging them to take a stand against bullying by wearing custom bullying prevention t-shirts that promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Plus, these shirts are just all around awesome and so fun to wear with these awesome messages on them!
Our hope is that by wearing these shirts, they will encourage others to step up and take proactive steps to prevent bullying in their lives and to promote Kindness, Acceptance, and Inclusion in their communities.
I remind our girls that every day is a new opportunity to make someone else have a better day. A simple smile, really listening to someone when they are sharing, and including everyone are simple things they can do that can have a big impact.
I know that we don’t always see the outcome of our kindness and that is why it needs to come from the heart without any expectations. If we all band together, we can end bullying.
You can purchase your own t-shirts like we are wearing above, and now through October 31st, CustomInk will donate profits from the sales of bullying prevention t-shirts to PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, up to $100,000, as part of the sixth annual Be Good to Each Other campaign. These T-shirts make great gifts too and are available for purchase, ranging from $12-$27.
To get involved and show your support, visit www.customink.com/stopbullying.
You can purchase the shirts here, and you can even design your own shirts here. Designing your own shirt would make a wonderful way to talk to your child about bullying prevention and being there to help others. I know my girls would have a lot of fun designing them and would love to wear something they created!
