    Jeans for Genes

    Jeans for Genes is a much-loved national day when people wear their jeans to raise funds for the Children’s Medical Research Institute (CMRI). All money raised goes directly to research aimed at curing childhood genetic diseases, which currently affect 1 in every 20 Aussie kids.

    From humble beginnings and the simple idea of going in denim mufti for a gold coin donation, Jeans for Genes Day has raised over $62 million in just over two decades, helping scientists discover treatments and cures, to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.

    To support the cause, Jeans for Genes merchandise is available at local schools and offices and donations can be made at major outlets including Big W, Jeanswest, and Lowes.

    Participants can share their denim outfit using #JeansForGenesAU. For more information or to register your support visit
