Jordin Sparks teamed up with âDo Something 101â this week, demonstrating an easy way for every teen to be an American Idol – with no singing skills required. Sparks, whose single âNo Airâ remains in the top 5 in the UK this week, joined several teen celebrities in a mission to provide school supplies for students in need via DoSomething.org and Staples Inc. Putting aside the microphone and stage lights, Sparks and other volunteers joined forces in Los Angeles to stuff 5,000 bags with pens, notebooks, calculators and binders that will be distributed to local teens, just in time for the back-to-school crunch. “This summer, Do Something teens rallied to bring tens of thousands of dollars worth of office supplies to Staples store collection points,” said Sparks. “Today’s event is a reminder that the weeks leading up to back to school is a great time to join Do Something 101 and help supply students in need.” According to DoSomething.org, there will be several events held throughout the country as the drive continues to build momentum. Every binder and highlighter counts toward a successful back to school for the more than 11 million children in the United States lacking basic school supplies. By simply donating pencils, notebooks and other much-needed items, teens can participate in a national drive that benefits local students in their own communities. These and other supplies are currently being accepted at all Staples locations through Aug. 31. Teens who want to make a difference can go to www.dosomething101.com for ideas on how to run local school supply drives.
