College Hype, Martin Richard Foundation team up to spread message of peace and inclusion
Dorchester apparel company College Hype has teamed up with the Martin Richard Foundation to help honor Martin’s message of peace, togetherness, inclusion and acts of kindness.
The two organizations are partnering to promote a line of apparel, produced by College Hype, which honors marathon bombing victim Martin Richard and furthers the work of the Foundation established in his name by his family.
To that end, the two organizations have launched the MR8 Apparel Store. This new store features apparel and accessories with the Foundation and MR8 logos. Purchases will help the Foundation's mission to honor Martin's message of "No more hurting people. Peace". The Foundation offers many programs and resources that encourage youths and adults to improve the lives of others and become bridge builders, peacemakers and leaders. For more information, or to make a donation directly to the Foundation, visit: www.martinrichardfoundation.org. To purchase apparel, visit: mr8apparel.com or collegehype.com.
"We are happy to announce our partnership with local Dorchester business, College Hype. We are grateful to their wonderful staff who are handling the entire process, all profits to benefit our Foundation," said Denise Richard, of the Martin Richard Foundation.
“College Hype is proud to join in and support the mission of the Martin Richard Foundation,” said Jack Doherty, President of College Hype, who said that initial early response to the new store has been very positive and very strong.
