Fridays tend to be casual at the HTC office, but today is the only day when you can catch our team sporting double or even triple denim looks!
For those, who haven’t noticed people around you rocking their denim outfits, today is Jeans for Genes Day! It is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders. It first became a national appeal in 1992. Since then Jeans for Genes Day has raised more than £35 million.
Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 people born in the UK and include conditions such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anaemia and muscular dystrophy. Their associated health problems mean that genetic disorders are the biggest cause of death of children aged 14 years and under in the UK.
At HTC we love to get involved in great inspiring initiatives like these! Join us in supporting Jeans For Genes!
