Ready to ditch those sausage-casing skinny jeans for some more flattering flares? The Gap is running their second charity denim promotion, offering 30% off a new pair of jeans if you bring your old ones in to donate through October 20. The old jeans are converted into insulation and donated to needy communities. During last March's donation drive, over 270,000 pairs of jeans were collected—which insulated 500 homes, including some in the Hurricane Katrina rebuilding efforts. Extra super duper bonus reason to participate: Facebook fans of the Gap get 40% off their new jeans. [Racked Inbox]
