Wear your jeans for a good cause

THERE will be a sea of denim on the Border today as people don their jeans to raise money for Jeans for Genes Day.

Schools, offices and businesses will wear their denim to raise money for research into birth defects, cancer, epilepsy and other genetic disorders.

Students at Osbornes Flat Primary School got a head start yesterday and have already raised more than $100 for the cause.

People are encouraged to offer a gold coin donation or purchase merchandise from participating business outlets including Jeans West, HCF, Lowes, Big W and Sam’s Warehouse.

Donations can be made by visiting jeansforgenes.org.au or calling 1800 436 437.
