Teens for Jeans Campaign

Help fight teen homelessness by donating your old jeans to an Aeropostale store near you! This denim drive runs from January 17-February 13, 2011, so start cleanin' out your closet!

Do Something!

Did you know there are 200,000 to 300,000 homeless people living in Canada? And that one in three homeless people in the US are under the age of 18? If you had a chance to do something to help, would you? Well, here's your chance! From January 17-February 13, 2011, you can help fight homelessness by donating your old jeans! Or if you have a new pair of jeans lying around in the back of the closet that you've never worn, either cuz they're not the right size, style or color, hand 'em over too. You may love your jeans and live in 'em 24/7, but there are kids and teens across the nation who don't have any warm clothes to wear this winter. Celebs like Rachel Bilson, Hayden Christensen and Chad Michael Murray have donated their denims to the cause in the past - this year, you should too!

Donate Your Denim

If you're attached to your jeans, then here's some incentive to give 'em to someone who really needs it - donate a pair of gently worn jeans and in return, Aeropostale will give you a 25% discount on a brand new pair! Aeropostale will make sure your donations get delivered to a local shelter or charity.Be sure to drop your jeans off at any Aeropostale store in the US or Canada by February 13, 2011!

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends
