Because Kids Get Cancer Too
Escondido, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2013
BYOU was happy to announce earlier this week that they have collaborated with the Ty Foundation in earnest efforts to help raise money and awareness for Childhood Cancer Research, because children get cancer too.
The Ty Foundation raises funds for Childhood Cancer Research in honor of their son, Ty Louis Campbell, who fell to cancer at the age of 5. Ty dreamed of jumping in Muddy Puddles when he was “all bedda.” The Muddy Puddles Project was created to celebrate the childhood Ty yearned for.
With BYOU’s motto “B-Inspired! B-Involved! B-Empowered!” they were excited to join the Ty Foundation, alongside The Muddy Puddles Project and create a campaign using BYOU’s Signature Series T-Shirt’s and Apparel line. They worked closely with Ty’s mother Cindy to create inspiring limited edition designs that were then placed on various apparel and merchandise that is featured on the BYOU website http://www.BeYourOwnYou.org. BYOU then donates $7 of every purchase to the Ty Foundation. It is BYOU’s way to not only raise awareness and major funding for the Ty Foundation, but to encourage people to join their empowerment movement.
