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.

No, actually I don't like donuts. I'm not much of a pastry person. Too filling and I prefer cookies or cupcakes instead. Do you have a birthday coming up in the next 3 months?
