Teens for Jeans Campaign 2012

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!

For more information on how you can help, visit www.dosomething.org/teensforjeans.

you can be fairly certain of your orientation at about any age around thirteen, or younger, too, maybe, but i do think that you'd need a more extensive understanding of sexuality before you're actually sure? your own sexuality and of sexuality in general. i mean, there is this misconception about sga orientations being s*x-central, which isn't true, since a young kid can have crushes on the same gender without even knowing about s*x at all in the first place. still, this is the difference between having an idea of your orientation and being certain of it (even if you may not be certain for many years after adolescence, too. it's not obligatory to figure it out before 20 or something). and it's really never too young for anybody to realize and acknowledge their attraction towards the same gender, it's just a matter of, will that attraction last for long enough after that for you to come out as the respective orientation? it's not just that you, as a girl, may be attracted to girls and boys now and later may just be attracted to boys--it could go totally the other way and find that you actually are only attracted to girls, but that only depends on your specific case and i don't know the details. it's fine to experiment with these labels i guess, but it's fair to say that many people will stop taking you seriously once you come out twice, thrice or more times as different things, because you hadn't thought it through properly. not to say that a single move like this that you do at thirteen will prove to be fatal or anything, though, if you live in a community that wouldn't put you at actual danger upon coming out, that is. you don't have to even choose a label if in the end you're not really sure, there shouldn't be pressure to do so. just go with something general and you'll get the point across. also keep in mind that 'coming out' isn't just a one time thing, and it's actually a continuous thing. sexuality won't come up in every discussion and you won't just go around yelling 'i'm gay!' around the whole city or something, you'll need to tell a lot of new people about it if you choose to and it will keep coming up. you can be out at school, but not at home. you can be out with friends, but not with the whole class. etc.  coming out isn't even such an important aspect in the first place if you ask me and it's a bonus pressure if you will. coming out will eventually come naturally when you get a same-gender partner and all, anyway, if you don't want to hide it forever or anything. good luck with that choice (in case i'm not too late with this reply, in which case good luck to whoever might be reading this for their own issue).
