Ashley Greene and Justin Long partnered with Teens for Jeans to spread homeless awareness. The two actors revealed that 1 out of 3 homeless people is a child. “When I heard the statistics, it was hard to ignore,” Ashley explained. “Traveling the country for Twilight and New Moon has given me the opportunity to meet teens from a wide variety of economic backgrounds. I want to do everything I can to help young people take action about this important issue.”
Justin Long is really branching out these days. The beloved Mac guy has moved on from plugging computer products to promoting an even worthier cause—clothing the homeless. Oh, and look; he's brought Ashley Greene along with him!
Check out Long and Greene's PSA for Teens for Jeans, which encourages people to donate their old jeans to homeless teenagers.
Ashley Greene (a.k.a. Alice Cullen for those Twilight fans out there) is busy this holiday season. In addition to her hectic promotion schedule for box office smash hit New Moon -- the latest installment in the Twilight Saga series -- Greene has been working to help homeless youth, a growing concern here in the U.S.
What is she doing specifically to support this cause?
"This holiday season I'm filming the DoSomething.org 'Teens for Jeans' campaign PSA to encourage teens to donate their gently worn jeans to homeless youth," says Greene.
