One Direction Against Bullying

Be nice, live nice. That’s one of the messages that Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn from One Direction are telling their fans.  The band has teamed up with Office Depot to run an anti-bullying campaign: “1D+OD LIVE.LOVE.MOVE Together Against Bullying.”

These pop stars are raising funds to combat bullying with the help of inspiring words like: “Live nice, live confident, and embrace your weirdness” on notebooks, pens, wristbands and other school supplies that Office Depot is offering nationwide in stores and online as limited editions.

"Being right out of school ourselves, the issue is fresh in our minds and we’re eager to raise awareness of this subject and remind everyone about the importance of living nice,” said One Direction member Liam Payne.

And the best part about this initiative – besides sweet One Direction school supplies, is a percentage of the products will go towards anti-bullying education.

This effort is part of a larger campaign in which 70-second videos were shown before every One Direction concert in their recent U.S. concert series.
