Did you know that approximately one out of every three homeless people in the U.S. is under 18 years of age, and that the most requested item that teenagers in shelters request is a pair of blue jeans? Why jeans? Because jeans are durable, warm and provide a sense of normalcy for teens in crisis.
The URL Dr. has teamed up with Caldwell and Kaufman Butler, students at Mercersburg Academy, to take part in the annual Teens for Jeans campaign. National sponsors of Teens for Jeans include Aeropostale and DoSomething.org who will provide a $10,000 cash prize to the school that donates the most jeans. Students at Mercersburg Academy can donate jeans at drop off locations that have been set up in each dorm.
As a thank you to local businesses who donate jeans towards the campaign, The URL Dr. is offering a free Local SEO Check Up (valued at $99), the ultimate analysis tool for determining the health of your website and how well you are reaching your target audience (including audits of your business listings in local directories, on Google+, a search engine ranking report, and a social media report.)
Just drop off a pair of jeans at the donation locations listed below, snap a picture of your donation and post it on The URL Dr.’s Facebook page or mail your jeans to:
