One Direction are again using their influence for good by teaming up with Office Depot for an anti-bullying campaign.
The lads - Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson - are joining up with the office supply store Office Depot for the ‘1D+OD LIVE.LOVE.MOVE Together Against Bullying’ campaign.
The band helped design products, including binders, notebooks and even nail polish, to market as part of the campaign that will be released this coming fall.
One Direction’s resident Irishman Niall Horan told Just Jared, “We’re really excited to partner with Office Depot and help spread the anti-bullying message with our fans and students in schools across America.”
He continued, “And you know we’re not long out of school ourselves so we can relate. It’s a problem that’s fresh in our minds and we’re eager to raise awareness on this subject. We hope the PSA will help raise awareness, especially since it will be played at our concerts across America.”
A statement from Office Depot said, "The 1D/OD alliance will feature a collection of limited edition back-to-school products, which will be exclusively sold at Office Depot. A portion of the proceeds from each sale will be used to fund an anti-bullying educational program to encourage kinder behaviour among students."
