CustomInk Offers Limited Edition Tee to Benefit AmeriCares

TYSONS CORNER, VA--(Marketwire - Nov 27, 2012) - CustomInk, the "design online" custom t-shirt company, today announced it will offer a limited edition t-shirt to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. All profits from the sale of the Jersey-themed design tee will benefit the nonprofit AmeriCares (, which has relief teams on the ground in affected areas and is working to stock shelters and aid distribution centers.

The Sandy relief t-shirt is on sale now until December 11, 2012 at 100% of profits from each shirt sold (at least $10 per shirt), will go to AmeriCares efforts in New Jersey. To date, AmeriCares has delivered medicines, vaccines, water, hygiene kits, sleeping bags, diapers and other emergency commodities to 44 partner organizations in storm-affected communities.

Funds raised by the online t-shirt sale will be earmarked for recovery efforts in hard-hit New Jersey. CustomInk President and Co-Founder Marc Katz has a personal connection to the area. His father's family hails from Margate, a Jersey shore town south of Atlantic City where the storm made landfall.

"CustomInk believes that custom t-shirts have the power to unite people. This is a chance to harness that power to do some good," commented Katz.

In a letter to CustomInk customers and team members about the campaign, Katz writes: "For me, the New Jersey shoreline is a place of deep family roots, natural beauty, caring neighbors, and iconic sub shops -- basically everything good in life!" He goes on to express CustomInk's hope that "this effort will be at least a small help to these communities as they rally together to get back on their feet!"

In addition to selling the Sandy relief t-shirt, CustomInk will donate shirts to AmeriCares relief workers to give them a morale boost and a sense of unity as they undertake their difficult work. CustomInk's Sandy relief effort is part of the company's Three Hearts Initiative (, which aims to use the power of custom t-shirts to do good in the world.
