One Direction and Office Depot both make a lot of paper, and more importantly, they both want to bring an end to bullying in schools!
The retail giant and Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik have teamed up to raise money for an anti-bullying education program set to launch in the United States during the 2013 back-to-school season.
Beginning on July 5, a limited edition line of notebooks, pens, stickers and collectible items will be available for sale as part of the 1D/OD alliance. The boy-banders even have their own nail polishes named after them—ranging from lime green Zayn to deep indigo Liam!
A portion of the proceeds from each sale "will be used to fund an anti-bullying educational program to encourage kinder behavior among students," according to a press release.
Plus, the boys will have an anti-bullying message broadcast on TV and at their concerts. The "1D+OD LIVE.LOVE.MOVE Together Against Bullying" campaign will also extend to print and digital advertising, online and social media platforms.
It's nice to see the 1D boys using those pretty faces for such a good cause.
