Blue jeans in tatters
A fashion statement – the rich
Uplifting the poor?
So on second thoughts
My threadbare trousers I’ll keep

If you wish to contribute to a truly noble cause, you can donate to CMRI – Children’s Medical Research Institute. In Australia, Jeans for Genes Day is held on the first Friday in August and on this day people are asked to wear their jeans and donate to CMRI. So wear your favourite jeans, torn- and- in ones or intact, old-fashioned ones and give generously.
Have a great weekend! ❤
you neither chirp nor tweet.
Your laughter is much like mine,
my cackle is much like thine.
We are two sister souls,
one clad in feathers,
the other in clothes.

Die Hosen sind kaput.
Genau. Aber die Hosen sind nach der Mode, sehr schick! 🙂
A wonderful research, well done. Jeans for Genes Day….
Thank you, Ivor. Your comment is much appreciated.
Great to learn of this day xx And I love my worn-in jeans – they’re softer 🙂
Hi Christy! FB tells me it’s your birthday today, so I wish you every happiness and have a great day! ❤
Awww thanks sweetie ❤
I love it…
“The rich… Uplifting the poor?”: such an accurate statement…. Sending hugs and wishing you a wonderful weekend, dear Irina! 😉
Thanks, dear Aquileana. xx ❤ 🙂
I confess I’d never heard of Jeans for Genes Day, Irina, but it sounds like an excellent cause. I love my old jeans, too. It takes time to make new ones feel as comfortable. If that’s you in the photo, I must say, you look very trendy! 😀
It’s not me, Millie, I don’t own such trendy clothes. Anyway, I’d never wear torn clothes. 🙂
