I love it when brands and celebrities pay it forward. The latest effort comes from Katy Perry and Staples, who are working together to Make Roar Happen.
Staples is the sponsor of the North American leg of Perry’s Prismatic World Tour. As part of their partnership, Staples has donated $1 million to DonorChoose.org, an awesome organization that helps to fund classroom projects for teachers – and therefore benefits students nationwide.
For the duration of her tour, Katy Perry is helping by raising awareness of how to help teachers. Participants can give a $1 donation either in store or online at www.staples.com/makeroarhappen, because every dollar can make a difference. Sadly, teachers spend a substantial amount of their own money on school supplies each year to make their classrooms a great place to learn and to supplement what they get (or don’t) from their school districts. The proceeds from this campaign will directly benefit teachers by funding local classroom projects listed on DonorsChoose.org. And they sure to deserve it, don’t they?
