Calling All Parents and Grandparents!

Now is the time to contact your kids' or grandkids' school and encourage them to put Jeans for Genes Day August 4th, 2023 on their calendar. Whether they organise organise a Wear Denim mufti day for a donation, Bake it Blue stall, or something more elaborate like a disco - every bit helps! 

Use our handy template to contact your school.

Jeans for Genes is an opportunity to teach students about STEM, leadership, and compassion for others - all while raising money to help sick kids.

Funds raised go directly to Children's Medical Research Institute to help our scientists find cures for genetic diseases, including cancer, and other serious conditions affecting 1 in 20 children – that’s nearly one child in every classroom!

How to fundraise at your school:

  • Sign up for Jeans for Genes 2023!
  • Start brainstorming ideas for your event - a mufti day, bake sale, a school-wide challenge, or anything else you can think of. Options are limitless! See our Fundraising Ideas and Resources.
  • Deposit the donations you’ve collected to help kids fighting genetic diseases.

We're developing a STEM education site for primary school students. Please have a look and give us your feedback!
