*Non food post* Stand up and Do Something, donate your gently used jeans to help homeless teens

Last year I was proud to take part in the Teens for Jeans program (no, I'm not a teen anymore *sigh*) But I like to do what I can to help out. We've all got a pair or two of jeans that are in good condition that we don't wear for whatever reason, well.. get 'em outta your closet and help a homeless kid, because everyone deserves a good pair of jeans. (And this is coming from a girl who Only wears jeans!)

I'm all excited to get The Kid involved this year too, since he's in the Jr./Sr. high this year we're going to get the whole school involved.. here are the details so that you can get involved and do your part.

Find a local Aéropostale Drop off location Here

Teens for Jeans is a national campaign, launched by Aéropostale and Do Something, empowering YOU to collect jeans for homeless teens.

Just drop off any pair of your gently worn jeans to any Aéropostale store between January 26th and February 22nd and we'll make sure they get donated to a local homeless shelter or charity. To say thanks, Aéropostale will give you an additional 25% off your next pair of jeans.

Last year you helped us collect over 125,000 pairs. This year we're looking to help twice as many teens. To find out how you can get started sign up below and check out our Teens for Jeans Action Guide!
