Jeans for Joslin

Get Your Company or School Involved in the Jeans for Joslin Program and Help Joslin in the Fight Against Diabetes!

Pick a day, a couple of days, or a week. Get your company or school to participate in a program for a great cause while improving employee/student morale, involvement and philanthropy. It's fun, easy, and can benefit children and adults living with diabetes. 
 
Jeans for Joslin is a simple way for businesses and organizations to make a difference.  By donating money for a day, a couple of days or even a week, employees can help improve the lives of people with diabetes by supporting the innovative care, education and research at Joslin Diabetes Center.  With the help of Joslin, participating in a Jeans for Joslin campaign takes minimal effort while benefiting some of the 24 million children and adults in the U.S. who live with diabetes and its complications.

How the Program works:
A participating employee or student can donate $5 or more to the High Hopes Fund which provides support in research, education and giving our patients the best care possible. In exchange, employees or students get the opportunity to wear jeans to work or school. That’s all you have to do.  Every little bit counts.

Benefits:
Your company will be linked to an important cause and recognized as a generous supporter of the High Hopes Fund. Jeans for Joslin boosts employee morale and makes it easy for businesses and their employees to join the fight against diabetes.

Company Recognition:
Your company will be featured on our website,
Facebook, Twitter, e-newsletter and mailings.

Get Started:

  • Confirm your participation: Contact Caitlin Enright at (617) 309-2531
  • Designate an employee to coordinate the campaign with Joslin Diabetes Center.  We will send the coordinator an electronic kit of materials, including a customizable poster with basic information on the program, hints for running a successful campaign and email templates to inform your employees about the campaign.
  • Distribute donation information, provided by Joslin.
  • Encourage employees to participate by enclosing a donation and wearing jeans for a day.
  • Collect donations for the Joslin Diabetes Center representative to pick up at your convenience or send a check with the total amount.
