Tyson Baker from Tulsa, Oklahoma, who was a victim of bullying when he was a child, started a company with the initiative of ending bullying…through t-shirts! Reach Clothing is based on an experience Tyson once had when he saw that a t-shirt had the power to restore confidence within children. “It started after I heard about a child being bullied for wearing the same shirt to school everyday.”
Tyson can sometimes be seen selling his shirts at schools. He says for every shirt sold, he gives a free one away. Baker’s goal is to take his t-shirts and messages worldwide one day!
This is an excellent example of how people who are affected by bullying can stand up and make a change to spread the word about children and safety! As well, recognition and confidence against bullying may be found in the places where we least expect; lets stand together and find all the ways that we can end bullying!
