Here’s one wake-up call you won’t mind getting: How about if the boys of One Direction greeted you in the morning?
Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne have teamed up with the Get Schooled Foundation as part of their Wake-Up Campaign (http://getschooled.com/wakeup) that helps kids get up and get to school every day. One Direction will be waking up thousands of teens with a recorded “get out of bed” message. Take a listen:
As an added bonus, by signing up for a wake-up call from One Direction, teens will be automatically eligible to win school notebooks signed by the band.
The boys also announced that they are launching their Get Schooled’s Fall Attendance Challenge, that will see 215,000 students in 80 cities across 28 states in Get Schooled’s ‘friendly competition’ to boost student and school engagement and attendance rates. Both the Wake-Up Campaign and the National Attendance Challenge are designed to tackle the issue of absenteeism in U.S. schools.
