Jeans For Genes

GOR_1272-2

Did you know that globally 1 in 20 kids are born with a birth defect or genetic disease? And that 160,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year? Or that retinal eye disease affects 1 in every 3,000? These are terrifying statistics but there is hope.

The Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI) is working hard to find real answers to create a healthier future for all children. The first Friday in August is Jeans For Genes day, the major fundraising campaign for CMRI. Today Australians across the country will slip on their favourite jeans and dig deep in their hip pockets in support of this fantastic cause. Every cent counts so please donate whatever you can here

As someone who endured the hardships of having a childhood illness, I understand how important this campaign is for young patients & their families and friends alike. Sometimes the difference between sickness and health is simply the aspect of time. Time is sensitive, especially for kids, and without its availability towards research & treatment, many children never get to experience the ability to just being a kid – what we can consider the most wonderful time of our lives. The Jeans for Genes campaign gives patients a fighting chance to take back the childhood they never deserved to put on hold.

Jeans For Genes may be an Australian event but I’ve been invited to join these awesome fashion bloggers from all corners of the Earth to show off our favorite denim to raise awareness. Check out these awesome girls and see what Jeans for Genes means to them.

BE SURE TO FOLLOW ALONG!
