Tomorrow: the first 100 people to donate jeans to Goodwill at the JCPenney at the Manhattan Mall will receive a $25 JCP gift card, the first 500 will receive a reusable JCPenney tote bag. Also on hand for kicks and giggles: Jill Zarin (our favorite!), Kelly Bensimon, and LuAnn de Lesseps from Bravo's Real Housewives of New York, who'll be there from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. donating their own jeans to benefit Goodwill Industries—where jeans are the #1 seller!
