Don't Buy Into Bullying
Spend Kindly and Spread Compassion
Your dollars are important! As you consider gift giving and entertainment, please always choose merchants and products that respect people's names.
Considering giving a gift from a vendor who makes light of someone's name? Ask yourself:
Would I think this funny if it were my name and it was being misused constantly?
Would I think this funny if instead of a name, it used another aspect of identity like race or gender?
Would I think this funny if I accidentally bumped into these statements from strangers?
Have I checked out how names impact people subconsciously by using this tool?

Let caring merchants know you choose to buy from them because they don't carry derogatory products.
Ask a merchant to remove or discontinue a derogatory product.
Speak out when you see or hear the misuse of people's names.
