    You can’t always keep ALL your jeans in your closet, especially since you do need an excuse to get a new pair of the latest and coolest ones about right now! But you love your oldies as well…. my rule: if I haven’t worn my jeans for more than 6 months, I won’t wear them anymore.

    I always try to find some charity where to donate them, and I was thinking of maybe creating something here on the Forum where we could all send jeans and donate, or something like this. I am not sure how this could work, but I am sure we all need to o something to help others. Especially today, on Thanksgiving Day, it occurred to me that this would be a perfect way to say thank you for all the good things in our life.

    If you have any suggestions about how we could do this, or, if you think my idea sucks and you go and leave your jeans at any church, temple or synagogue, please tell.

    Maybe there are some organizations that take care of this kind of donation. I do not – absolutely not – want to send my jeans over to the salvation army either. I have seen how the employees, and their friends and family keep most of the stuff an this is not what I am thinking of charity.

    Thoughts?

    We can donate some of our jeans to The Jeans Museum of the Heaviest Fadings which located in Switzerland. As the owner, Ruedi Karrer has collected more than 13,000 pairs of jeans since 1973. Go ahead to http://www.jeansmuseum.org to find out more!

      The idea is that – especially this tie of the years – we should all be helping the homeless, the children, the people in need….

      Otherwise, it’s very interesting what you said – I had no idea this museum exists! thanks for this, I may contact them and learn more about this:)

    We donate locally to Goodwill and St. Vinnie’s; however, if I’m driving into town, I like to donate to the Mission.
