10 reasons to join in - Jeans for Genes

10 reasons to join in

  1. 1 in 10 families in the UK are affected by a genetic condition – so you will be helping support probably someone you know!
  2. It’s a great way to bring a team or a company together for a philanthropic and societal good cause.
  3. It highlights and promotes your company’s stance on EDI – bringing inclusion, understanding and support into the workplace.
  4. It shows you are a socially conscious business that does your bit!
  5. It’s so easy to organise. All you have to do is ask people to come to work in their jeans and make a donation of £2.
  6. It’s fun! On top of getting everyone to wear their jeans or denims for a donation, you can also use the ‘How do you wear yours?’ sweepstake poster – asking colleagues, friends and family to choose their perfect partner to their jeans. Not only will you have fun adding accessories and fashion favourites/faux pas to your denim day’s activities – but it can also add to your fund-raising total too!
  7. Ready to dance in denim? Get your gang together for the greatest groove! Get sponsored and donate to change lives. Use one of our sponsor form or better still, set up a Just Giving Link and collect online – including Gift Aid!
  8. Share your activities and achievements on our social media (all our social links are on the footer of our website) – getting shout outs, kudos and kindness points from all our supporters and donors.
  9. Join forces with us throughout the year – email us at hello@jeansforgenes.org and make us your charity of the year. Together we can work on an annual calendar of support, bespoke to your firm.
  10. And last but by no means least : thank you. All this activity and laughter adds up to real change. Although individually genetic conditions are rare, together they are the biggest killer of children 14 and under. Your efforts give services, support and – most importantly – hope across the whole of the UK, thanks to brilliant you.
