Feb '09
Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford, American Idol Superstar David Archuleta, New York I Love You's Eva Amurri, The Secret Life of the American Teenager's Shailene Woodley and TRL's Damien Fahey joins Aeropostale and teen not-for-profit DoSomething.org's Teens for Jeans campaign raising awareness on the growing number of homeless teens in the United States and Canada by empowering teens nationwide to collect jeans for homeless youth.

Chace Crawford stars in the PSA campaign which encourages teens to take action in their communities. "Right now one in three homeless people in the U.S. are under the age of 18. Let's Do Something about it. This year, we want to collect over 200,000 pairs of jeans," says Crawford.

Now through Sunday, February 22nd, people are encouraged to bring in any brand of their gently worn jeans to any Aeropostale store in the U.S. and Canada. Aeropostale and DoSomething.org will make sure the jeans are donated to one of the 500 local youth shelters that have been selected as partners. As an extra incentive for those who donate, Aeropostale will give an additional 25% off a new pair of jeans, though no purchase is necessary.

In addition to getting customers involved in stores, Aeropostale and DoSomething.org are encouraging teenagers in their local high schools and colleges to coordinate Teens for Jeans school drives. To be a 'Teens for Jeans' school ambassador and start their own drive they can sign up at TeensforJeans.com and receive a special Teens for Jeans action kit to help them get started. Over 1,000 teens have registered to be ambassadors.
