I’m really excited to share with you guys that I’m working with the BC Children’s Hospital as their Jeans Day Ambassador. I was on Global BC’s morning show this morning with denim inspiration for you to incorporate into your work wear. Jeans Day is a fundraiser for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Since it started in 1990, it has raised more than 20 million dollars for the organization, wow! In the last year alone, the BC Children’s Hospital has treated more than 84,000 children. The funds raised for this organization support the healthcare needs of the young patients at the BC Children’s Hospital. Jeans Day is happening this Thursday (on May 4th) and I think it’s incredibly important that we all unite to show our collective support.
In order to accelerate fundraising before the BC Children’s Hospital Miracle Weekend, there has been a united effort to #MakeMayMatter. Jeans Day is kicking off this fundraising push for the month of May! <3 This year, the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is hoping to raise 1 million dollars for the most urgent needs at the hospital. Keep reading to find out how YOU and your family can incorporate the Canadian Tuxedo into your wardrobe this Jeans Day.
I hope that you’re all able to participate on Jeans Day. There is an annual Jeans Day Barbeque being held this Thursday (on May 4th) at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Hornby Street in Vancouver, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. This barbeque will feature professional athletes and team mascots – it’s the perfect way to get the entire fam involved!

I’m so grateful to live in a country that is so committed to providing our children with the best healthcare possible. How do you guys plan on getting involved this Jeans Day? Leave me a comment below!
