Being homeless is bad enough, but being a homeless teenager with shabby-looking clothes is even worse. That is why My Brother’s Keeper Newman’s founder, Princeton Carter says he launched the “Teens for Jeans" campaign. Jeans are always in style. You can’t tell how much money somebody’s making if they’re wearing jeans. That is why My Brother’s Keeper Newman has joined the DoSomething.org, a nonprofit group for young people and social change, in the eighth annual "Teens for Jeans" campaign. The plan is to collected and donated more than 100 pairs of jeans, and we are committed to making a difference for teens in need. This year’s campaign ends February 26, 2016.

Drop-off boxes are installed at the Louisiana State Bar Association in New Orleans and at Carter Law Group, LLC’s office in New Orleans. Donors can call (504) 527-5055 to have donations picked up from their homes or offices. “We hope to help as many teens as possible. If I just help one person, it’ll be worth it," Princeton said. We’ve already collected over 50 pairs of jeans so we are already halfway there. Working on this makes you feel good. It’s a very rewarding feeling to know that we are doing some part to make a difference."
