It’s Jeans For Genes Day today, which I’m guessing in some ways is a huge success, and in other ways, not.

It’s a success in that a lot of people seem to know about it, and have worn jeans into work today. That’s great. It’s obviously a high profile event.

But I reckon it’s not a success in that the money raised for it by city workers like me is probably minimal, because there’s nowhere to donate money! The usual haunts, the railway stations and the building foyer, were devoid of charity collectors. And I haven’t spotted anywhere to buy the badges. What’s going on? How can such a high profile event be so badly organised?
