Genetic Disorders UK is proud to announce the launch of Jeans for Genes Day 2019, the annual fundraising campaign which this year will be supported by Warner Bros. UK, a host of famous faces and two very special DC Super Hero icons, Batman and Batgirl.
For the first time, Warner Bros. UK has agreed an exclusive charity partnership, with Batman and Batgirl featuring on the limited-edition Jeans for Genes Day t-shirt. The t-shirts will be sold online with all profits going to
support children living with genetic disorders.
The t-shirt, which was designed by Graphic Design student Chayanis Jumrus who is currently studying at Kingston University, was selected by a distinguished fashion panel including Coleen Rooney, Louise Thompson, Maurice Mullen and Alexandra Fullerton.
The t-shirt, available for men, women and for the first time in children’s sizes too, features Batman and Batgirl ‘Fighting for a good cause’ and has been modelled by high profile names including; Kimberly Walsh, Mollie King, Una Healy, Eyal Booker, Rebekah Vardy, Josh Patterson, Lauren Pope, Sophia Hadjipanteli, Nikky Lilly, Anna Williamson, Louise Pentland, Coleen Rooney, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Snoochie Shy, Maya Spencer-Berkeley, Olivia Buckland, Alex Bowen, Megan McKenna, Georgia Toffolo, Jack Guinness, Vanessa White and Malin Andersson.
The campaign raises funds to support children and families affected by life-altering genetic disorders. Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day will fund the work of Genetic Disorders UK and provide grants to organisations for projects, day-to-day support, equipment, respite and events which bring together affected children and their families.
Laura Pattison, Campaign Director for Jeans for Genes Day, said: “We are all extremely excited about our partnership with Warner Bros. UK and having two such iconic characters as part of the design for the 2019 t- shirt. Our goal is to help the significant number of children and their families affected by genetic disorders from across the UK, and with Batman and Batgirl offering us a helping hand we hope this year can be our most successful yet.”
Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Entertainment UK, Eire & Spain. also commented: “We are celebrating Batman’s 80th anniversary this year and Warner Bros. UK is thrilled to be partnering with Jeans for Genes Day to support such an iconic fundraising campaign. Batman is always ‘fighting for a good cause’ and this is a great way to help support children and families facing difficult challenges in their lives.”
