Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Miley Cyrus, Jason Mraz, More Raise Funds for Teachers in New TV Special


Which teacher believed in Justin Bieber before the Beliebers? Who was the person that inspired Pitbull when he was still a pup?

Celebrity or not, many of us have at least one teacher who changed our lives—yet these unsung heroes are spending a combined $1.33 billion of their own money annually on school supplies for their students (Source: National School Supply and Equipment Association).

Real Change—Artists for Education—a one-night, nationally televised TV special airing on CBS in major markets this April 23 (check local listings)—is fighting to change that, bringing together A-listers like Biebs and Pitbull, plus Miley Cyrus, Quincy Jones, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz to:

· Revisit their hometown schools and highlight the teachers that changed their lives
· Spotlight other outstanding education all-stars striving to guide today’s youth
· Help deserving classrooms across America
· Give some exclusive musical performances along the way

Real Change is in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org—a non-profit that pairs donors and deserving teachers who need funds for their classes—and Office Depot, the proud purveyor of these much-needed school supplies. The mission: inspire teachers across the country to register with AdoptAClassroom.org and move viewers to donate and support these classes in need.
