Default Jeans for Genes

I was re-wallpapering DaintyTrish's Designer Shoe Box today (I could have sworn she asked for "Rick Astley" .....She says it was Laura Ashley apparently...)

Anyway.... Whilst she was making me a thimblefull of strong tea she asked if anyone had put up the link for Jeans for Genes Day again.

http://www.jeansforgenes.com/

I reminded her we'd already done our bit for them at LAYDEES and surely we should now be focussing on HDA what with Charidee beginning at Home and all that.

At this point she she picked up the toothpick and I jumped back, spilling the tea down my khaki chiffon overalls. Instead of poking me with pointy stick she used it to point at the website again on the section that says they are funding an RCA for the HDA under their 2008 Grants Awards Scheme.

http://www.jeansforgenes.com/money/grants08/huntingtons

Well you don't get much closer to Home than that I agreed.

So if you lot aren't already aware of Jeans for Genes.... Why not take a look at the site and check if it's being taken up at your workplace, or better still, order a fundraising pack and get involved yourself?

I'm off to get some more gloss for DT now. Apparently I messed up with the Litre of Stuff I got her from B&Q. She said it was a nice colour but she'd asked for Lip Gloss.

Women.... I can't seem to get anything right....
