Fundraise

Kids just want to be kids, but instead of playing sports with their friends or catching butterflies on a sunny day, these kids are getting liver transplants, taking dozens of medications, or getting their next dose of chemotherapy.

You have the power to help by raising funds for research that will save precious little lives. Whether selling Jeans for Genes merchandise at your school or office, holding a ‘Bake it Blue’ bake sale, or asking your friends and connections online to support a great cause, your support is vital.

Jeans for Genes

Jeans for Genes funds revolutionary research that helps diagnose, understand, and find cures for conditions affecting kids, including genetic disorders, cancer, and epilepsy.

Real kids. real stories.

1 in 20 children is born with a birth defect or genetic disease, that's 12 every minute worldwide. They face a lifetime of hospital visits, transplants, or therapy and that's if they survive.

By donating, you will help us create a healthier, brighter future for children in Australia and around the world. Children like Fred and Linke fighting cancer, or Charlize and Madeline battling a lifelong genetic condition.

Together, we can help the children of the future live their healthiest lives.
