Want to take one of the guys of One Direction to school with you this fall? Well, the group has teamed up with Office Depot to make that scenario a bit more plausible... and it's even for a good cause. The UK boy band has teamed up with the retailer for a collection of specially-designed products that promote the "1D+OD LIVE.LOVE.MOVE Together Against Bullying" campaign.
The products will hit the retail chain just in time for the 2013 school year with portions of the proceeds going to anti?bullying educational program. "We are thrilled to launch the '1D+OD Together Against Bullying' alliance with One Direction," Bob Moore, the Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer for Office Depot, said in a statement. "Office Depot is committed to making a difference in students' lives with meaningful anti-bullying education, and thanks to the powerful voices of Niall, Harry, Zayn, Louis, and Liam, we will make considerable progress."
The collection is co-designed by the guys in the group. The campaign will also feature a special anti-bullying message from the fivesome, which will be featured in overarching marketing campaign for the line, as well as appear in videos during their current tour.
So, what else are the guys up to? Well, when they aren't being adorable do-gooders, the guys are currently taking a break from their Take Me Home tour before they kick off the next leg this June, bringing the show to North America and the U.S. If that's not enough 1D for you, they will also release their 3-D movie, "This Is Us," on August 30. And, on top of all that, they are rumored to be dropping their next album sometime before the end of the year.
