Some of us cannot even imagine it, but there are million of students each year that cannot afford the basic school supplies. Staples for Sudents has come up with a wonderful solution.
And what better than to have teens lead the campaign and make it easy to provide back to school supplies to students in need

“I’m excited to help motivate fellow teens to make a difference in their communities,” said Bella Thorne. “There are so many kids in America who return to school without basic school supplies, and I’m thrilled to team up with Staples and
DoSomething.org to encourage teens to lend a hand.”
“We are truly inspired by what teens and our customers across the country can accomplish for the millions of children unable to afford basic school supplies,” said Alison Corcoran, senior vice president of retail marketing at Staples. “With help from celebrities like Bella Thorne and support from DoSomething.org, we can send kids back to school with the tools they need to succeed.

Since 2008, the campaign has raised more than $2 million for hundreds of thousands of students in need throughout the country.
