”Feels good to help others who need it and it didn’t cost a lot!” – Hanna
Hanna’s school is participating in a donation drive for Teens for Jeans.
Teens for Jeans is an awesome campaign from www.DoSomething.org who’s goal is to provide jeans to homeless teams. From their website, ”1.7 MILLION TEENS ARE HOMELESS – The #1 item they request from shelters is a pair of jeans and you can help.”
Hanna set her personal goal of 20 pairs of jeans to donate to the drive and made a plan to shop at Goodwill of Central Arizona’s Thursday Dollar Day to find the jeans.
After three trips and three separate weeks, she reached her goal of 20 pairs of jeans, paying $1 for each pair, with money she earned from doing extra chores in her home. Three pairs of those jeans were brand new with the tags still attached and many pairs were Levis, Gap, Ann Taylor and Jones Sport, brands. A pretty smart and ambitious eleven-year-old, if you ask me!
This Goodwill Gal is so proud of you, Hanna! Way to go!
