The campaign, spearheaded by NYC-based teen retailer AÃ©ropostale, raises awareness about youth homelessness by inspiring teens across the US and Canada to collect gently-used jeans and donate them to homeless youth right in their own communities.
In 2009, Teens For Jeans collected over 200,000 pairs of jeans and this year teens are already gearing up to top that effort. There are drop-offs located at all AÃ©ropostale stores from January 19th through February 14th, 2010.
Ashley shared, “When I heard the statistics, it was hard to ignore. Traveling the country for Twilight and New Moon has given me the opportunity to meet teens from a wide variety of economic backgrounds. I want to do everything I can to help young people take action about this important issue.”
