Staples is teaming up with Twilight actress Nikki Reed and DoSomething.org for the
3rd Annual National Do Something 101 School Supply Drive.
The Do Something 101 campaign encourages teens to collect school supplies and drop them off at their nearest Staples® store from July 4 through September 18. Staples is kick-starting the campaign by donating more than $125,000 in school supplies to the cause. Staples customers can also get involved by donating $1 at any Staples store, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting local students in need. All school supplies and donations will be given to educational and not-for-profit organizations that serve disadvantaged youth.
If you'd like to find out more about our local charity partners, please contact a member of the Staples PR team.
New for 2010, Do Something 101 is getting even more celebrity power with Give-Back Pack, a grassroots and online program where music artists Jason Derulo, Kellie Pickler and Drake Bell are also encouraging teens to get involved. Once they sign up online for a Give-Back Pack, teens can pick their pack leader, see exclusive celebrity content, and get tips for planning their own Do Something 101 drives. The celebrities will donate $1 to Do Something 101 for every member who signs up to join their pack, up to $5000 per pack. Learn more at www.staplesgiveback.com.
