"We are trilled to partner with Aeropostale in raising awareness and funds for our Peapod Foundation," said group member apl.de.ap. "The foundation works to encourage change for social issues affecting children worldwide. [We] provide tools and mentors encouraging children to express themselves through music and art."
The initial press release announcing the partnership claims that, as part of the deal, Aeropostale has already made a big donation to the foundation set at $100,000.
