We’ve all had that pair of jeans that we’ve called life-changing—they fit perfectly, they go with everything, and we can’t imagine our closets without them. But for some, a single pair of jeans can be a real life-changer—and you, collegiettes, can make that happen.
DoSomething.org, the largest organization for young people and social change, is partnering up with Aéropostale for the eighth year in a row on the Teens for Jeans campaign. The largest jeans drive in the country, the campaign aims to help youth experiencing homelessness. More than one million teens and children in the U.S. experience homelessness each year, and most of them have only the clothes they’re wearing when they enter a homeless shelter. The one item these young people ask for most often is a pair of jeans.
To help promote the cause, we’ve teamed up with Aéropostale and DoSomething.org to give away a $500 Aeropostale gift card—all you have to do is enter your email address here to sign up, learn more, and participate in Teens for Jeans!
