Jeans for Genes® is the UK’s largest fund-raising campaign to benefit those affected by rare genetic disorders. Genetic disorders affect approximately 1 in every 25 births. Many conditions affect fewer than 10 in a million births and some are so rare that they don’t yet have a name.
Working closely with schools, workplaces and individuals to promote the annual Jeans for Genes® campaign, we have raised over £45 million income, the profit from which is distributed as grants to some of the smallest specialist charities.
With a 25+ year history, this is an established brand that has already made a huge difference to our genetic disorder community. We have ambitious plans for the future and now need to extend our reach and support to provide more much-needed grants for those in need.
