Its a new year, but Give & Get NYC is still doing the same old thing: bringing people together for a good time and a good cause. This time I’ll be hosting a Pants Party on February 9th at Stout, and you’re all invited. Here’s what you need to know:
1. Bring a pair of new or gently worn jeans to Stout (133 West 33rd Street) on Feb 9th at 6:30.
2. Put jeans wherever I tell you to upon arrival.
3. Enjoy drinks with other people who brought jeans.
4. Play some darts.
5. Go home at ?:00.
After everyone has completed Steps 1-5, I will be taking the jeans to be donated to homeless teens/young adults in NYC. Your closet is cleaner, and some kid is going to look fly in their new denim. Win-win.
I got the idea for this party from an organization called DoSomething, a website that encourages teenagers and youth to take action in their communities and DO SOMETHING, by providing an online forum for volunteer opportunities, age-specific seed grants and more (Check out the website-it’s really cool). They’re currently running their 4th Annual ‘Teens for Jeans‘ contest; teens will collect jeans between January 17 and February 13th to be collected and donated to local homeless shelters by Aeropostale. Even though this contest is for teens, the donation drive is for anyone with a pair of gently used or new jeans they want to donate; just drop them off at any participating retail store (call ahead to confirm participation) and you’ll get a coupon for 25% off your next purchase.
So, you are cordially invited to the Pants Party.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. And please join Give and Get NYC on Facebook and RSVP!
UPDATE: Anyone who donates jeans will be entered into a raffle to win tickets to The Addams Family on Broadway!!
