Scooter Braun, manager of Usher protégé Justin Bieber, is responsible for bringing the project to the attention of the “U Don’t Have To Call” singer. I knew Usher was very passionate about the issue of education, so I felt this was a great project to bring him into,” Braun said. His expertise will be invaluable as we continue this film and movement.”

A social media campaign featuring uploaded videos of the film’s producers relaying their personal struggles will be used to launch the film and create awareness.
