If part of your “New Year, New You” resolution involves cleaning out your closet — or, more importantly, giving back to your community! — check out our friends at DoSomething.org’s Teens for Jeans.
More than 1.5 MILLION teens and children are homeless, and 1 in 3 people experiencing homelessness is under the age of eighteen. One of the most requested items of clothing by homeless young people? A pair of jeans.
Which is where you come in! If you (like, ‘ahem, some of us) have a few extra pairs of jeans you’ve outgrown, never get around to wearing, or are generous enough to part with because you want to help, head over to DoSomething.org and sign-up for the campaign. Then, tell your friends about it, grab those jeans and drop them off at the closest Aéropostale.
We love this campaign so much we’re going to show off the ways you and your friends are donating your jeans by featuring your pics on our show! For the next four weeks, we’re choosing one winning pic a week and highlighting it on the countdown of our show. So grab your jeans, snap a pic and tag it #Ch1TFJ on Instagram!
To learn more about the campaign — and the amazing prizes DoSomething.org and Aéropostale are giving out just for being a part of it — head over to the campaign page at DoSomething.org and get started making an Impact!
