Actress Nikki Reed is using her Twilight platform for a great cause — urging teens to collect school supplies for less fortunate students. More than 13 million kids cannot afford the basic supplies need for back-to-school and Nikki hopes to change that, addressing students in a new PSA!
The PSA will air on television and radio stations nationwide starting in July, and Staples is donating more than $125,000 worth of school supplies to the program.
Nikki is encouraging teens to make a difference this summer by collecting school supplies and dropping them off at their local Staples store from July 4 through Sept. 18. In addition, Staples customers will be able to get involved by donating $1 at any store, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting local students in need.
Anyone who wants 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.
Catch Nikki’s PSA and be sure to spot her on the red carpet tonight for the L.A. premiere of Eclipse.
