Genetic disorders affect many families around the world. Jeans for Genes raise money all year round to donate to various initiatives to benefit those families.
Annually they run an annual grant programme open to UK charities and patient groups which care for children with genetic disorders. This allows other causes to gain vital funds to continue their related work. This includes the research and care for patients.
As well as direct help to the patients and their families, Jeans for Genes also create resources to encourage school pupils to be more empathetic to people with disabilities and the struggles they have to endure.
Genes for Jeans have built up a famous following of ambassadors including Warwick David, Lorraine Kelly, Emma Bunton, The Queen and many more. You can find out more about who supports the cause, here.
As a group, we have supported the charity with an annual non-uniform day with a denim theme to raise as much money as we possibly can. This year we will support the cause again and you can do the same on the 23rd September! Find out more about Jeans for Genes at https://www.jeansforgenesday.org/ .
