Give Jeans a Chance

February 9th, 2012

In a quest to raise awareness around homelessness in Australia and New Zealand, Volcom are partnering up with YOU to help make a difference. On March 1st 2012 Volcom will launch Give Jeans A Chance- a nationwide 3 month initiative which is specifically focused on donating jeans to those in need.

Last year we successfully ran Give Jeans A Chance, denim donation for the homeless. We raised over 3,000 pairs of jeans and distributed them to the homeless community throughout Australia and New Zealand…. In 2012, we aim to raise enough jeans to get everyone in need into a pair of jeans just in time for this winter.

Want to help? Start collecting your old but wearable jeans, and take them down to your local Volcom retailer listed below.  Anyone who donates a pair of jeans goes into the running to win a custom Thrills motor cycle pictured here.

All jeans collected through this program will be donated back through our friends at the Homeless Connect events in Sydney & Brisbane, Uniting Care in Prahran Victoria, Western Australia and Auckland City Mission. Through these shelters we are able to get  jeans directly to those in need, meaning your jeans are taking the most direct root to helping someone.

“I am really excited coming into the 2nd year of give jeans a chance. We had such a good response form the New Zealand and Australian public last year. For our first year running this event, we could not have been happier with the outcome. It was also great to be able to partner up with organizations like homeless connect events in Sydney and Brisbane, and Prahran Mission in victoria. This year we are looking to smash the number of jeans donated last year by aligning our program not only with our retail stores, but several schools across Australia & New Zealand and 10 key business’s relevant to our market. If last years response is anything to go by, we are sure to have a lot of jeans for the homeless in 2012.” Shane Azar – Volcom
