Yes, that is Master H, wishing everyone a very happy Jeans for Gene’s Day – and wearing his Daddy’s specially designed donation shirt! (As you can see, the attempt at getting him to capture Mummy strutting her stuff in denim didnt go down too well but please do enjoy the abstract camera angles of my front garden!)
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to don the denim and support this worthy cause, which raises money to support the Children’s Medical Research Institute. They are fighting the good fight, to both extensively research childhood genetic diseases and unlock the mysteries that surround them. All parents, whether blessed with healthy offspring or otherwise, should feel humbled that there is such a dedicated foundation focusing on this issue. Because as 1 in 20 births result in some sort of genetic or congenital abnormality, there but for the grace of God goes you or I…
A special thanks, this Jeans for Genes Day also goes to the lovely Karen (aka MiscMum!) who ran a comp on her blog to spread the word on this worthy cause. Happily my name was picked as the random winner and now our little family is not only rockin some too cool Jeans for Genes supporter wear, but were able to indulge in some Jeans West retail therapy after being sent a $250 gift card! While The Husband and I went about updating our wardrobe with some funky new essentials, Master H decided that all he was interested in was the oversized (on him!) Jeans For Genes t-shirt that he proudly models in the video clip. So attached did he become to it that he insisted on wearing it to playgroup today. Here he is rocking the “boho chick” look on the tramp!
A shout out too, to the team at Ogilvy PR who sent me my very own J4G patch, to proudly display today, to help promote this commendable charity.
Please, be sure to visit the Jeans for Genes website, for more information, or to donate. At the very least, wear your denim and keep the discussion going, long after today is done and dusted. Spread the word, far and wide, to keeping jumping for Jeans for Gene’s and bring joy, bring prevention and hopefully one day, bring cures to the scores of children affected.
