TEENS for JEANS
DoSomething.org is a not-for-profit organization that empowers our nation's teens to be agents of positive change in their communities taking on some of our society's most pressing issues, i.e. providing clothing for homeless youth in our country (and Canada!). We are about to embark on our 6th annual nation's largest youth-run clothing drive campaign called Teens for Jeans in partnership with Aeropostale Clothing Store. Throughout the U.S. and Canada, high schools will sponsor clothing drives where teenagers will donate their gently used jeans to their local Aeropostale store. Aeropostale will in turn transport the donated clothes to their local participating shelters that service homeless youth and/or homeless families with youth, shelters/centers like StandUp For Kids. If high schools are not already participating, they can simply visit our website that details how they can become an agent of change.
LeAnn Rimes "Give" video featuring homeless youth is out now!
Please check out LeAnn Rimes' video for "Give"! The video was shot in Chicago with some of the homeless and street youth in our Chicago program.
Read her blog post, titled "Life Changing", about the video shoot here:
LeAnn Rimes, in filming the video for her new song "GIVE" spent the day in Chicago with some of our homeless and street kids. She said: "I really fell in love with them too. My life is forever changed. One thing they said is no one looks them in the eye when they see them on the streets, so there's a deep loneliness there and a feeling of almost not existing. I will now always look anyone who's homeless in the eye and smile. That smile could make their whole day. It could make them feel like they are alive and a part of the world."
