Aeropostale and DoSomething.org have embarked on their sixth annual "Teens for Jeans" campaign. From now through Feb. 10, bring a pair of gently worn jeans of any size or brand to an Aeropostale or a P.S. from Aeropostale store. The jeans will be donated to local youth shelters. For each pair of jeans donated, you’ll get 25% off a new pair of jeans. (But it’s OK to donate without buying anything.) Besides the donated jeans, Aeropostale is contributing 10,000 new pairs of jeans to the shelters, too. In the last five years, the effort has resulted in 2.5 million jeans going to young people in shelters, organizers say.
