It’s been nearly 2 weeks since the launch of DoSomething.org’s ‘Teens for Jeans’ campaign and teens aren’t the only ones taking off their pants for a good cause. Celebs are jumping on board too to support the 4th annual campaign, called Teens for Jeans, that collects jeans for homeless teens in local communities around the US.
Lead by celebrity spokespersons Jessica Lowndes and Matt Lanter from 90210, all kinds of celebrities have taken to twitter to support the campaign, including Enrique Iglesias, Michael Yo, Tia Mowry, and Twilight‘s Boo Boo Stewart.
Some celebs have even been spotted making their own jeans donations at Aeropostale stores around the country. While in Little Rock, AR American Idol winner Chris Allen dropped by to make a donation. R&B recording artist Jay Sean also made the trip to his local Aero store in Times Square – inviting his fans to come along. Nikki Blonsky made her jeans donation with pal Alexis Bledel during a break from their play in NYC Friday afternoon. More are expected to show their support before the campaign closes on February 13th.
Reports from real-life teens running their donation drives across the country are also piling in, but there’s still time to get out there and get those jeans for homeless teens! A top collector will be selected to win $5000 their school and a party to celebrate. You can also submit your awesome jeans collection photos for a chance to win signed jeans and other swag from celebrities. Submissions accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
