McLanahan’s Selling Blueout Shirts for Saturday’s Game
An initial batch of 600 shirts will be sold in store. Pre-orders can also be made by calling McLanahan’s at 814-238-2252 and will be available for pick up on Friday. The shirts only cost $9.99, and all of the proceeds made from their sales will be donated to Prevent Child Abuse PA.
The game had been previously declared a student Whiteout, but in light of recent events, even the Penn State administration chose to rally around a student-organized Blueout. Indeed the game was officially declared a Blueout by GoPennStateFootball last night.
“In light of the numerous counts of alleged sexual abuse recently charged against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, wear blue to the Nebraska game to support the victims of child abuse worldwide. The Blue Ribbon Campaign against child abuse began 22 years ago and is recognized across the country. In addition to being the color of our team’s home game jerseys, blue represents the color of bruises that have too often been neglected. Let’s make national news for our collective actions to show solidarity with both the victims and our fellow classmates on the field. Even if you can’t make the game, feel free to “attend” this event by wearing blue wherever you may be! We do not have to wait until THON to prove that Nittany Lions remain “For The Kids.” On November 12, make it a blue-out.”
Shirts are limited, so be sure to hurry down to McLanahan’s so we can honor those who have been overlooked by this scandal, the victims.
