Ashley Greene is committed to helping the homeless youth

According to USA Today, 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 conern here in the U.S.

What is she doing specifically to support this cause?

"This holiday season I'm filming the 'Teens for Jeans' campaign PSA to encourage teens to donate their gently worn jeans to homeless youth," says Greene.

How does the campaign work?

The third annual Teens for Jeans drive encourages teens to drop off their gently worn jeans to any Aéropostale store anytime between Jan. 19th and Feb. 14th, 2010. DoSomething "will make sure they get donated to a local homeless shelter or charity."

As an added bonus (beyond the good karma you'll receive for giving back, of course), Aéropostale will give an additional 25% off on your next pair of jeans.

Greene's thoughts on her career success and the related campaign?

"I feel very fortunate to be in a place where I can use my voice to make a difference."
Help DoSomething and Aéropostale top last year's total of 200,000 pairs by joining Greene in donating your used jeans next month (FYI, you don't have to be a teen to participate!).
