ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Folks put on some denim to raise money for charity Wednesday. Hundreds of pairs of designer jeans were up for sale Wednesday at marked down prices in Albany to benefit the Children's Miracle Network.

Charity Denim is a non-profit group that buys jeans at super discounted rates and then sells them and gives part of the proceeds to charity.

Raina Greene with Charity Denim said, "It's just to help others raise money. We're a non-profit organization ourself, so about 10-15% of the proceeds go back to a charity of their choice, back to their foundation or so forth, and it's a fun way to shop for a good cause."

Dona Lyn Goodpasture said, "Children's Miracle Network is very important at Phoebe. We supply a lot of the specialized equipment and training that provide programs in Southwest Georgia that are otherwise not available."

The sale took place at Phoebe Northwest from 10AM-6PM Wednesday.
