What is Jeans for Genes?

Jeans for Genes is an appeal dedicated to raising funds that will help children suffering from genetic disorders.

This is how it happens in the UK

In the UK, one day every year everyone is asked to throw out the usual dress rules, jump into their jeans and donate a sum to help this cause. They also come up with zany ideas to raise extra funds, such as competitions and quizzes.

Look at our successes and activity in the UK by visiting the Jeans for Genes UK website on www.jeansforgenesday.com

Many of our supporters now hold their own fundraising events through the year.

$534,129 has been allocated to research in the US in addition to our UK funding and we would like to see research boosted in the USA.
