Ashley Greene Rallies To Help Haitian Disaster Victims, One Pair Of Jeans At A Time

01/21/2010 at 11:08 AM ET

After signing on as the spokeswoman for donatemydress.org, a charity that aids underprivileged prom-goers, Ashley Greene has now paired up with dosomething.org and retailer Aeropostale on a campaign to donate jeans to homeless youth, both in Haiti and here in U.S. The 22 year-old appears in a video with actor Justin Long to plug the denim drive, whereby people can drop off used jeans at all Aeropostale stores now through February 14, and the retailer will match the first 100,000 pairs of recycled denim with brand-new jeans to deliver to Haiti’s disaster victims. “When I heard the statistics, it was hard to ignore. Teens everywhere want to help with this important issue of youth homelessness and now the earthquake in Haiti,” explains Greene in a release. “I want to do everything I can to help young people take action, and ‘Teens for Jeans’ is a great way for them to get involved.” As added extra incentive, donors will also have the chance to win autographed jeans from Greene’s Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz, plus Kelly Clarkson and the stars of Glee, Gossip Girl, and One Tree Hill. “It’s easy to change a life,” Greene says. “Go out and donate a pair of your jeans to an Aeropostale store to support Aero and DoSomething.org’s ‘Teens for Jeans’ campaign.” -Emily Hsieh
