Max Appeal supporting Jeans for Genes Day Friday 22nd September 2017

This year Max Appeal is one of Genetic Disorders UK partner charities

Image: 2_medium.pngThis year Max Appeal is one of Genetic Disorders UK partner charities. This means we will be sharing in their new 50/50 income share scheme for the 2017 Jeans for Genes Day.

Max Appeal will be also benefiting from a Jeans for Genes Day grant to help support our youth activity weekends.

This is what you can do to help support the national fund raising day, Jeans for Genes.

If you can persuade your child's school or your place of work to participate in this year's Jeans for Genes day (and providing they have not held a fundraising event for Jeans for Genes Day for the past 3 years, - 2014, 2015 or 2016. If they have done, the school cannot be recruited as part of this scheme).

Both Max Appeal and Genetic Disorders UK can equally benefit from any monies raised, - 50/ 50!

Here's the steps to take next:

1) After ascertaining that the school has not held a Jeans for Genes Day in the last three years, the supporter arranges to meet with the head teacher or other member of staff and explains:

a) that they are supporting initiative to fundraise for Max Appeal

b) that if the school held a Jeans for Genes Day, half of the money raised would support Max Appeal families and half would support all those affected by a genetic disorder in the UK.

2) The head agrees that it would be something the school would like to do.

To ensure that this school is linked to Max Appeal, the supporter must ask the school to choose your organisation from the list of affiliated partners at the bottom of the registrations page when going to the Jeans for Genes Day SIGN UP page.

Please register your event on the link below and ensure you nominate Max Appeal.


3) Once the school has confirmed they have registered, please would you ensure you inform info@maxappeal.org.uk so we can keep a record of schools and workplaces that our supporters have recruited.

4) You should then receive a Jeans for Genes fundraising pack... have fun supporting both Max Appeal and Genetic Disorders UK on Jeans for Genes Day.
