Office Depot And Sony Pictures Entertainment Unite To Highlight 1D+OD Anti-Bullying Campaign At The One Direction: This Is Us Film Premiere Event

Stock quotes in this article: ODP

Office Depot (NYSE:ODP) today revealed the next phase of its multi-faceted anti-bullying partnership with One Direction by announcing sponsorship of the band’s summer movie premiere. The One Direction: This is Us premiere event will take place in New York City and will help benefit the anti-bullying educational component of the strategic partnership.

The private after-party will include a Charitybuzz silent auction featuring exclusive celebrity items and experiences. Each band member will donate a personal item, and never-before-seen, life-size signed prints will be among the available items. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Office Depot Foundation’s anti-bullying education efforts, launching in schools this fall.

“We’re excited to be part of a program that promotes such an important message: bullying must stop,” said Zayn Malik of One Direction. “From the start of the collaboration, we’ve partnered with Office Depot to create incredible products that communicate our anti-bullying message. The money raised at our movie premiere event will help spread the message to ‘Live Unique’ and to treat each other with respect in schools across America."

“Through our partnership with One Direction and our work with the Office Depot Foundation, we are developing a truly meaningful, anti-bullying program,” said Bob Moore, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer for Office Depot. “We’re excited to join with One Direction to make a difference in students’ lives and appreciate Sony Picture’s partnership in premiering this movie for such an important cause.”

“With our premiere event, we not only wanted to celebrate the movie, but find a way to reach out and make a difference. After all, the film is as much about the boys themselves as it is about their music – their humble, compassionate natures shine through,” said George Leon, Executive Vice President, Sony Pictures Consumer Marketing. “That’s why we’re gratified that Office Depot will be sponsoring the event as part of their anti-bullying campaign – this issue is personal to the boys, and we’re thrilled that the event will support it.”
