Wear Jeans for A Day!! Short Term


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


"Jean for A Cause" Day at your school, employer, social club, sporting event, or organization allows and encourages people to wear jeans (denim) in return for a charitable contribution to Ruff House Rescue (RHR)! This is can be a one day or a week event in which everyone is encouraged to wear jeans (or sweat pants, pajamas, flip flops, ...) for a purpose -- to raise awareness of animal issues and educate yourself and others about Ruff House Resue's mission.

Length of term:

There is no minimum amount of time required, only what you are able to volunteer.

Ability to communicate Ruff House Rescue's mission.


One to several times a month, employees/students get permission to wear blue jeans, sweats or pajamas for the day for a $1-$10 donation to a cause. You can even have people donate items instead of money. If you are doing items we have a wish list on Amazon (let us know we can email you that list).

Some employers even have Equitable matches where they will match the amount contributed by employees on each "Jeans for a Cause" day --- Your company's Human Resources Department would be able to let you know more.
