TWIST just chatted with Bridgit Mendler, singer and star of Disney Channel's Good Luck Charlie! Bridgit told us about her involvement with Target's $5 million back-to-school campaign. She also spilled some exclusive deets about her upcoming single and album! Check it out below, along with a fun video of Bridgit talking about her work with Target!
TWIST: Can you tell us about Target's $5 million back-to-school campaign?
BM: Yeah, Target is donating $5 million to help schools and education. The campaign is going on this fall and the money will help schools across the country. Half of the money will be donated by Target to 100 schools, and they will each receive a $25,000 grant. Then Target will donate the other $2.5 million through Target gift cards and the schools will be decided by voting on Facebook.
TWIST: Why did you want to get involved with the Target campaign?
BM: I think education is so important. Also, it's so important for kids to have everything they need to be successful in school. So I think it's great that Target is making that happen and I'm so excited to be a part of it.
TWIST: Can you tell us about your music? You have a single coming out soon, right?
BM: Yeah, I have my new single, "Ready or Not", which comes out August 3! It's a really fun song! And then my album is coming out in September!
TWIST: Did you write your own songs for the album? If so, where do you get your inspiration?
BM: I co-wrote all of the songs on the album and I worked with some really awesome people! I get inspiration for songs just from everyday things and situations that happen in my life.
TWIST: Do you have any other upcoming projects our readers should know about?
BM: Well, I obviously have the Target campaign and then my single and album. Also, be sure to look out for the fourth season of Good Luck Charlie!
TWIST: We can't wait! Thanks so much for talking with us, Bridgit!
BM: Thanks, TWIST!
