Jeans for Genes Day takes place on Friday 5th October 2012. The charity’s target for this year is £2.5 million, and it’s a simple idea – on Jeans for Genes Day people leave their suits and uniforms at home and wear their jeans to work or school in return for a donation. (hey, we did this in the Brownies in the 1970’s on non-uniform day!)
Jeans for Genes Day raises money for Genetic Disorders UK which aims to raise money to provide vital care and support for individuals and families with genetic disorders. In 2012, twenty three charities will benefit from the funds raised.
The exclusive zip pulls come in four Ben & Holly related designs featuring Ben Elf, Princess Holly, Nanny Plum and Gaston the Ladybird. The range is now on sale at the official online store: http://www.jeansforgenesday.org/webshop and will be available from selected UK retailers. All proceeds generated from the sale of the zip pulls will go direct to Genetic Disorders UK, the charity that brings you Jeans for Genes Day.
