Nikki Reed Gets Charitable for the Kids

By: / October 6, 2010

Twilight actress Nikki Reed is using her fame and status to give back in a big way, as the actress recently teamed up with DoSomething.org and Staples to raise more than $800,000 worth of school supplies.

Reed served as spokesperson for the 3rd Annual Staples Do Something 101 School Supply Drive, and the results shattered the tallies for the previous two. Says Reed of the $807K final mark:

“I am inspired by and applaud the many teen volunteers who gave their time and energy to help students in need … The donations Staples collected will have widespread effects, helping students throughout the country get their school year off to a great start. I’m so happy to have been able to be a part of such a meaningful cause.”

Since 2008, Do Something 1010 has raised $1.88 million to help out students whose school districts need extra funding for the basic tools of education.
