Update: Teens For Jeans
On February 21st, 2015 I dropped off my last set of jeans to Aeropostale for the
Teens for Jeans jean drive.
With your help and support I was able to raise over 250 pairs of jeans!
My goal was to collect around 140 and you guys have
surprised me with your overwhelming amount of support!
After dropping off my jeans I received a 20% off code: TFJ2015
Which can be used online and in the store!
Feel free to use it, It expires March 5th, 2015
I was not going to do the jeans drive this year as a result of
not feeling people would support it. I work in a facility where many
of the youth are underprivileged, so I figured there was
no one to donate toward my drive,
boy was I wrong!
This year I did things a little differently as a result of having that fear.
I used my network and coordinated with advocates across
the city and delegated each one a Drop Off Location !
[I had 5 drop off locations in total:
2 in Brooklyn, 1 in Queens, 1 Manhattan, & 1 in Staten Island]
With this strategy I had such a great outcome,
with Staten Island showing out!
The community of SI donated over 150 pairs of jeans!
With my co-worker Greg being the amazing jean collector,lol !
Next Year I will make this more of a team effort and get
the youth more involved !
With Encouragement, Realization, and Achievement,
P.S. Never Ever Ever…
Let your fear limit you from doing good for others!
