What Happens When We Pull Our Blue Jeans On

Graph of monthly donations of jeans moneyWe all have those dress down days. Reasons vary. The weather’s beautiful and we just want to lay back. Or the weather’s miserable and comfort is the ticket. Or everything is in the laundry or at the cleaner’s. Whatever the reason, it’s a day to wear jeans.

At DPP, that’s one of our prerogatives, but it comes with a price. Wear jeans on any day except Friday, and we’ll need to ante up $4. But it’s all good, because that money goes to one of several organizations that we’ve selected to support.

In 2013, DPP staff contributed $1,518 to seven charities, including:

  • Big Brother/Big Sister
  • Families Helping Families
  • Harvest Hope
  • Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
  • March of Dimes
  • Palmetto Project: My First Books
  • United Way

And in case you were wondering: we don’t have to wear blue jeans in order to make a donation. Wearing a jean jacket counts, too. ☺
