Jeans for Genes Day 2015: Friday 18 September

Do something extraordinary in jeans to celebrate 20 years of Jeans for Genes Day

Jeans for Genes raises money for Genetic Disorders UK and aims to change the world for children with genetic disorders.

This year’s Jeans for Genes Day takes place on Friday 18th September and is aiming to raise £2 million to provide care and support to 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.

The day invites people to leave their suits and uniforms at home and wear their jeans to work or school in return for a donation which will help change the lives of children across the UK.  

Jeans for Genes Day provides vital funding for the care and support of children with genetic disorders. In 2014, 25 charities benefited from the funds raised on Jeans for Genes Day.
