Jan 17, 2012

Help Demi Lovato collect pants for the homeless with the Teens for Jeans Campaign. Kidzworld has all the details.

Teens for Jeans

Did you know one in three homeless people in the USA are under the age of 18? From January 16th until February 12th DoSomething.org is partnering with clothing store Aeropostale to help collect new or gently worn jeans in the Teens for Jeans campaign.

This is the fifth year in a row for the Teens for Jeans campaign. In the first four years more than 1.5 million pairs of jeans have been collected, which have helped homeless teens across the country. This year, Demi Lovato is joining DoSomething.org to ask for your help!

How to Help

Helping the Teens for Jeans campaign is simple! All you need to do is collect gently worn jeans and drop them off at the Aeropostale store at your local mall. Or, you can rally your whole school and get them to help you for your chance to win cool prizes! So far almost 6,000 schools have signed up for the campaign. The school that collects the most jeans will win $5,000, a new pair of Aeropostale jeans for every student and a party for the entire school!

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
