It is estimated that each year one in every 25 children in the UK is born carrying a genetic mutation that leads to one of 6,000 genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia, fragile x syndrome etc. Some genetic disorders are diagnosed at birth and others take years to diagnose.
The Jeans for Genes campaign, which was launched in 1992, calls for people to wear jeans and to make a small donation and support the work of the charity. The campaign centres around a variety of activities with a “jeans theme”, such as dressing up their jeans or adding accessories. encourages people to organize fundraising activities at work, school and in local communities.
The charity encourages everybody to participate by wearing a denim or blue accessory, or one of the “Jeans for Genes” t-shirts like Anne wears above as a means of supporting the charity and it’s the message it conveys “Wear jeans, change lives.”
