Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK, the charity that aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.
Individually, genetic disorders are rare but together they affect 1 in 25 children born in the UK - that's more than 30,000 babies each year. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under.
Jeans for Genes Day is our annual fundraising event. Ask your colleagues at work or the children at school to wear their jeans for the Day and make a donation. Visit www.jeansforgenesday.org to sign up for a FREE fundraising pack.
How your money helps
Jeans for Genes Day provides funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders through our grant programme. In 2017, 22 organisations will benefit from the funds raised on Jeans for Genes Day.
