Jeans for Healthy Genes program on May 18 thanks to the efforts of IDF volunteer Yvette Shorten.  The purpose of the Blue Jeans program is a simple and powerful way to raise awareness of primary immune deficiency diseases, while raising funds for further research and patient programs at the same time.

In recognition of the day, participants donated $10 to IDF and wore blue jeans on that day. For their donation, participants also received an IDF button pin and sticker.

In addition to faculty and staff participation in the program, Yvette encouraged a group of Texas Constables who were training at the Institute to donate.  Through the Blue Jeans program and additional donations, Yvette raised $1,000 for IDF in only a week!

Thank you to Yvette for her support of IDF and our mission!  If you are interested in hosting a Blue Jeans for Health Genes event at your work, school, or other organization please visit the website for more information.
