Twilight's Nikki Reed Does Good

Did you know that more than 13 million kids can’t afford to buy basic school supplies for back-to-school? That’s why DoSomething.org and Staples are teaming up with actress and screenwriter Nikki Reed for the 3rd Annual National Staples/Do Something 101 School Supply Drive.


Powerful PSA

To help kick-off the campaign, Nikki Reed, star of this summer’s blockbuster film Twilight: Eclipse, is starring in a public service announcement (PSA) debuting on DoSomething101.org today. The PSA will air on TV and radio stations nationwide starting in July, and Staples is donating more than $125,000 worth of school supplies to the program.

Make A Diff

Nikki is encouraging kids to make a difference this summer by collecting school supplies and dropping them off at their local Staples store from July 4 through September 18. In addition, Staples customers will be able to get involved by donating $1 at any store, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting local students in need. Each store will be matched to a local educational not-for-profit organization serving local youth, and DoSomething.org and Staples will ensure that all the donations get to these partners just in time for the new school year!


Get Involved

Kids who want to get involved can go to www.DoSomething101.org for ideas on how to run local school supply drives and to sign up for an action kit. Whether holding a school supply drive at summer camp, during a summer sports league or at a neighborhood block party, DoSomething.org and Staples offer tips, resources and flyers for how to get started and make the most of every kid’s summer.

i think the problem is just lack of understanding, and that we need to be taught to some extent about mental illnesses at school. depression - because its so common, but also the other mental illnesses that we don't hear about as often. a year ago, i confronted a friend about the possibility of me being depressed. i told this particular friend because we had a similar conversation the year before that. after i told her, she immediately responded with statements such as "you can't be because you seem so happy" and "try not to be". i think this stopped me from talking about it to any of my other friends since then, especially since some of them would make jokes about depression every once and a while.  i don't think any of my friends mean to be hurtful, its just they don't understand that depression is a serious illness that can't just go away. it effects you mentally, and physically. but people who treat and talk about depression in these ways only make it harder to seek help.
