Jeans for Genes
How to nominate the Tuberous Sclerosis Association as part of Jeans for Genes
Jeans for Genes Day is an annual fundraising campaign by Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by genetic disorders.
The Tuberous Sclerosis Association (TSA) are a proud partner of Genetic Disorders UK, meaning that you can get involved in Jeans for Genes and help raise funds and awareness to support people affected by Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)!
What is Jeans for Genes Day?
Between Monday 16 – Friday 20 September, thousands of people around the UK help raise funds for people affected by genetic disorders by asking schools, workplaces or community groups to wear jeans for the week.
If you get involved on behalf of the TSA, half of the proceeds that you raise will go to the TSA!*
*Jeans for Genes Day is a fundraising initiative organised by the UK Genetic Disorders Partnership Network. We are a member of the Partnership, so if you organise for your school or workplace to hold a Jeans for Genes day and they haven’t held one in the last three years, the Tuberous Sclerosis Association receives 50% of the money raised. It’s as simple as that!
How to register for Jeans for Genes and raise money for people living with TSC
To ensure that the Tuberous Sclerosis Association receives 50% of the money you raise, just follow these three simple instructions:
- Sign-up and order your fundraising pack from the Jeans for Genes website here
- Fill in the free fundraising pack form on the Jeans for Genes website
- For the question “Are you affiliated to one of our partners?” choose the Tuberous Sclerosis Association from the drop-down menu.
This ensures that the TSA and Jeans for Genes know that you want to fundraise for us!
Once you’ve collected those fantastic funds, just send them back to Jeans for Genes and they’ll take it from there.
£10 Means that we can send a support pack to a family who has just received a life-changing TSC diagnosis, ensuring that they do not go through this time alone.
£25 Can help us develop materials that are included in our support services, flagship events or campaigns.
£50 Can provide laboratory equipment for a day’s research into the causes, symptoms, management or treatment of TSC.
To provide help for today and a cure for tomorrow.
