Teens for jeans

Friday, January 18, 2008

Here's a good reason to clean out your closet and buy some new jeans: Do Something -- a not-for-profit organization that works to get teens involved in volunteering -- has teamed up with Aeropostale stores in its Teens for Jeans campaign.

Between Jan. 22 and Feb. 10 you can get 20 percent off new jeans when you donate yesterday's gently worn jeans of any brand. The companies aim to collect 100,000 pairs.

They'll take your jeans and donate them to teen charity or homeless shelter. Do Something claims that 1 in 3 homeless people in America are under the age of 18. They've enlisted the help of Rachel Bilson from "The O.C." and Hayden Christensen to film a public service announcement and be the shining faces for the Teens for Jeans cause.
