Style News | Fashion Bloggers Unite To Support Jeans For GenesFriday, August 07, 2015
Bloggers, all across the globe have united with Sydney Fashion Hunter, to bring awareness to childhood diseases. And, what better way to bring awareness to this cause, than with fashion. Today, August 7th, in her home country of Sydney, Australia, Australians all over will sport their favorite pair of jeans. She also, gathered a few fashion bloggers and we threw on our favorite pair of jeans to support Jeans for Genes.
Jeans For Genes, raises awareness about childhood diseases and money to support research so that scientist can discover treatment and cures, ensuring every child can live a long, healthy and happy life. The Children's Medical Research Institute, is dedicated to defeating childhood diseases, like Cancer and Cystic Fibrosis. If you would like to support Jeans For Genes go ahead... throw on your favorite of jeans and make your donate here.
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 a Mum I have been a long time supporter. I cannot imagine how difficult it would be to watch your child suffer a serious illness. Jeans For Genes may be an Australian event but I have decided to step it up a notch and go global! I've invited my favourite fashion bloggers from all corners of the Earth to show off their favourite denim to raise awareness and the response has been phenomenal. I know you can't wait to check them out so read on for all the details ...
