The collection provides an opportunity for parents and kids to shop one assortment, in a dual-gender size offering that covers trends in both color and style, but not defined by gender.
“We’re incredibly excited to support the empowering work being done by PACER, especially during National Bullying Prevention Month. Unfortunately, bullying continues to be a real issue that people of all ages struggle with, and our hope is that this tee, as part of our Everybody Collection, can help raise awareness for this important initiative. Kindness is a choice, and we can all make a difference by choosing to be kind,” said Stacia Andersen, Brand President of abercrombie kids and Abercrombie & Fitch.
“Omaze has been an important and wonderful partner,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center and the National Bullying Prevention Center. “We are delighted that abercrombie kids is now offering the Choose Kind tee.
