Fashion: Jeans for Genes

With Jeans for Genes coming up next month I thought I would tell you a little bit about the charity and show you this years fabulous charity t-shirt.  

Jeans for Genes day which takes on the 23rd September, raises money for Genetic Disorders UK. Genetic Disorders UK aims to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders and funds raised will go to the vital care and support they urgently need.

There are between 4,000 and 6,000 diagnosed genetic disorders and it is estimated that one in 25 children is affected by a genetic disorder which is more than 30,000 babies and children being diagnosed in the UK each year. 

To raise money the charity is encouraging people to wear jeans on Jeans for Genes day and make a donation. You can also support the charity by wearing one of the t-shirts which has designed by Katherine Garbutt, a student at Glasgow School of Art. You can see me below wearing my t-shirt. The t-shirt is available to buy online for £20.
