Get your jeans on and create a healthier and brighter future for kids!
Jeans for Genes is the major national fundraiser of the Children’s Medical Research Institute. Each year, more than two million Aussies wear their favourite jeans and donate much needed funds to support vital genetic research to advance the prevention and treatment of diseases affecting children.
Every year, volunteers from around Australia rally together and donate their time at shopping centres, train stations or on streets to raise money.
This year, they need 1,500 volunteers to help sell merchandise on Friday 3 August and raise funds for this very important cause.
You can volunteer on your own or grab a group of your friends together and register a team. It’s fun and easy to be involved. Simply visit jeansforgenes.org.au/volunteer to register.
You can volunteer at a range of locations and for as much or as little time as you are able. Just choose the location and shift times most convenient to you. Their staff will organise all permits and merchandise and make sure you have all the information you need to make your experience rewarding and most of all, a lot of fun.
