Jeans for Jobs

Dress for Success San Antonio (Texas) is promoting an event for the Thursday, May 18, 2006. Basically you and your office co-workers each donate $5 to the organization to help low-income women receive workforce training and in return your employer agrees to let you all wear jeans to work.

Their pitch:

Help fight poverty through workforce development and job retention. Please help us celebrate Jeans for Jobs during the month of May. You and your company's participation will help a low-income woman receive the services she needs in order to prepare and succeed in a professional environment. Call Pamela Taylor, CEO, 210-737-9510 for more information.

On Thursday, May 18, 2006 Dress for Success San Antonio will kick off its first annual Jeans for Jobs Day to benefit low-income women, children, and their families. Please help us celebrate during the month of May. You and your company's participation will help a low-income woman receive the services she needs in order to prepare and succeed in a professional environment.

In order to participate, colleagues and employees make a $ 5.00 tax-deductible donation to Dress for Success San Antonio and for your donation, your employer agrees to let participants wear jeans on May 18, 2006. If your company already enjoys a relaxed dress code, we hope you will consider collecting much-needed funds to fight poverty through workforce development and job retention.

That's a great idea.

We did that at my high school. It was a private school and jeans were not on the dress code, so this worked really well. I never thought about applying that in a workplace setting. Brilliant!
