“I’m glad to partner with Staples on my Prismatic World Tour to raise awareness and funds for, and to remind my fans that a small gesture can make a large impact on the very basic materials classrooms need for teachers to help students reach their full potential,” said Katy Perry. The “Make Roar Happen” campaign is supported by insights from a recent Staples survey, which found:

  • 75% of parents of teens have had “that” teacher in their life that influenced them greatly.
  • 65% of parents of teens say teachers in their community do not have all the supplies they need.
  • 75% of parents agree that a lack of school supplies is a problem for schools today.
