Jeans for Genes- win a Jeanswest prize pack!

I saw this beautiful quote on the Jeans for Genes Facebook page by a lady called Michelle. She said: "Genes, we all have them, but sometimes they are not perfect.” It made me tear up a little because it’s so true. With one in 20 children born with a congenital abnormality or genetic disease either you or someone you know will be directly affected.

I come from a family with members affected by epilepsy, and have just recently sat beside one of my dearest friends as she and her family come to terms with their child’s cancer diagnosis.

It’s projects like Genes for Jeans Day that make things like this a little more bearable. Whether it’s through just simple awareness of what the Children’s Medical Research Centre does, in investigating everything from birth defects through cancer, to actively fundraising, this is an important day indeed.

So how can you help on Jeans for Genes Day?

Wear denim on 5th August and share your pic: Remember to wear denim on 5th August, share it on Facebook and tag “Jeans for Genes Australia” in the photo so it can be shared with supporters of the campaign

Become a Fundraising Genie: Organise a fundraising activity at your home, office, school or community on Jeans for Genes Day. It could be as simple as asking your group to wear jeans on Jeans for Genes Day and make a donation. To get a free Genie Kit, visit the Jeans for Genes website to register.

Enter the Huggies Jeans for Genes Day photo competition. Huggies have just launched a baby photo competition to raise money and awareness for Jeans for Genes Day. Simply submit a photo of your bub in Jeans for Genes Day merchandise to go in the running for one of three $600 Westfield vouchers. For more information and terms and conditions see the Jeans for Genes Day promotion page.

And here’s a little something for YOU!

To go into the running for prize packs containing a $250 Jeanswest gift card, official Jeans for Genes t-shirts and gear, and two movie tickets, simply leave a comment below and tell us what favourite gene you hope you’ve passed on to your little one! Is it your height? Your eye colour or even your lovely disposition? Tell us and you could win this fab prize pack!

Entries close: Tuesday 26th July.

Winner will be announced on the Huggies blog on Wednesday 27th July – so be sure to check back here.

My eldest is 7 and we've recently discovered that he is quite possibly on the Autism spectrum. I like to think that it is my genes that have passed on his lovely nature, sense of empathy and beautiful caring personality.

My compassion for others. This is a hard life and compassion can help someone who might of otherwise been on the edge and depressed see the world in a more hopeful light. If more people had honest compassion and caring there will be hope for a brighter future.

I teach my children to have empathy, kindness and compassion. I teach then that if someone is not very nice maybe they have had a bad day and we should not use that first impression to judge them. We should make excuses for eachother and be forgiving.

There is so much that i hope to pass on to my little beans.

Some of which I hope to have passed on to my 2:

- that different doesnt mean wrong. That different is just that ~ different.
- that you can be whatever you want, do whatever you want & go whereever you please, but YOU are accountable to make that happen
- for every action there is a reaction - good or bad, YOU need to be responsible for the outcome

I could go on & on, but dont want to bore anyone... LOL

I lost my most amazing mum to cancer just after I got married. I fell pregnant a few months later and when my bundle of joy arrived 9 months later, she had the same little nodule on her ear that my mum had. I was hoping my baby would have some gene from my beloved mum and this was it. I was overjoyed to find that my son, born 2 1/2 years later, had the same nodule on his ear! Every day I look at my kids, I see my mum and you've no idea how much joy this brings. I miss her more and more every day, particularly watching my own kids grow up. Despite the gene not coming directly from me, this quirky family trait still lives and warms my heart every day!

I love that my boys have inherited my father's giant hands (paws). My father's hands represented both strength and gentleness, were calloused from hard work but soft enough to soothe skinned knees and hold new born babies. My father died before my boys were born and every day I see my father's beautiful hands on my sons and hope that they will represent strength, gentleness and kindness to my sons children. (I'm also glad that they are boys and not girls because giant hands on girls are not so fantastic......I know!)

I know my kids have gotten the ability to laugh from me because they crack me up on a daily basis but I am hoping that they develop my sense of adventure in later years by travelling and grabbing life by the horns and running with it.

Both of my boys have beautiful long eyelashes from me. Actually they are even longer and mine and we always get comments from complete strangers about how long, thick and beautiful their lashes are. As for their looks they look more like their daddy than me but from me I hope they learn patience.

My daughter inherited my blue eyes, which read like a barometer when she is tired, happy or full after actress. She has the eyes of an old soul.

I hope my kids inherit my sense of humour. There is so much seriousness in the world, and even at their age they get caught up in it. I want them to know it's okay to have a laugh every now and then!
Plus you know, my striking good looks and high IQ. Oh, and let's not forget my modesty wink

My answer doesn't apply to your question exactly, it's the opposite. I wish that I (and my daughter's father) hadn't passed on our Genes for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). We are both carriers of CF and this resulted in my daughter being diagnosed with CF which is a 1 in 4 chance when both parents are carriers of the gene. I hope I've passed on 1 million times the strength I've ever had so that she can fight her way through this terrible disease.

I hope that I have passed on 'empathy' and 'kindness'. From an early age we are working hard to instill these important qualities in our daughter.

The one gene that I have given to my baby boy has got to be his height! I am 183cm tall and have battled at time with being such a tall woman.. But it is absolutely beautiful to see my son inherit my length! He is bigger than all the other babies his age we know.. Love it.. smile

The best gene my 2 year old daughter has received is from her dad....she is so funny! The pair of them are like clowns. They crack me up everyday. I love sitting there watching them play because they are so alike! Very entertaining!!
