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.

By request of @AwesomeIvysaurGirl34 . I will attempt to follow through as much as I can, but I would love some help from YOU, the reader. I will sometimes (often) suffer from writer's block and disinterest! If you enjoy what I've written, even in this short post, encourage me and give me ideas! It's all appreciated, even criticism. I will post as often as I write. A continuation of "The Man in the Coffee Shop", found in the forums.  A few (a lot) entrees are not included  due to laziness. December 7, 1941 Well, they’ve done it. Japan has bombed Pearl Harbor. I’ve been praying for much of the day for the families of those poor soldiers. I’ve been wondering if perhaps I should join the fight, though I might not have a choice soon enough. Drafting is sure to begin soon, as it won’t be long until Roosevelt declares war. It’s only been… what, three years?... and I feel this war has gone on long enough.   January 1, 1942 Happy New Year! Not very happy for me, though. My draft card came in today. I kind of knew it was inevitable, but… a man can hope, can’t he? Have to go pick up my uniforms now. That’s all for today   January 20, 1942 First day of Boot Camp. Yay… It was already the most exercise of my life. We ran a couple miles (I’ve never ran more than one), and I can tell my commander doesn’t like me. Lieutenant Michaels is his name. Been called out more than once by Michaels in front of everyone, and the food’s awful. But there’s this really cute secretary of his that I couldn’t catch the name of, but I already saw all the other recruits goggling at her. Pathetic, ain’t it? Talked to the guys and half of them are married already. It’s around 9:00, though I should say 2100? I think? Military time is confusing. But, the beds are a bit more comfortable than I expected. Actually, I don’t know what I expected. I don’t know the first thing about war, except a few stories from my grandpapy. He did some pretty amazing stuff back in the Great War. That smear right there is my chuckling and disturbing the pen. It’s just, they said the Great War was the “War to end all wars,” and here we are again. There’s nothing new under the sun, and human nature doesn’t change.
