If you’ve got a few pairs of jeans that you no longer wear lying around your apartment, you’ve got a few options for them. You could just stare at them balled up in your closet (useless), you can cut them and turn them into jorts (it’s not even March) or you could start wearing them again. OR, you could gather them up and do something good with them, like bring them to Aeropostale and donate them. Then you’d be doing something good, but you’ll get a reward for it.
DoSomething.org is running their annual TeensForJeans clothing drive, which collects jeans dropped off at Aeropostale locations around the country and gives them to homeless shelters. Anyone who brings in a pair between now and February 24 gets a coupon for 25% a pair of jeans. And not for bringing in a bundle of jeans either. Each pair of jeans gets you another coupon. All you need to do to make yourself eligible is sign up on DoSomething’s site and then gather up your jeans (and your roommate’s jeans*) and head down to Aeropostale. Conveniently enough, there’s one on Fulton Street.
