Jeans Day at School - Alabama (2014)
Teachers and staff at Paine Intermediate School in Trussville, Alabama held a jeans day fundraiser on Wednesdays during the month of January. Their efforts were held in honor of four-year-old Annalie E. who is affected with lamellar ichthyosis. Many of the 1,000 students and staff members had not met little Annalie, so this was also a wonderful opportunity to educate the entire school community about ichthyosis, paving the way for a smooth transition when Annalie begins kindergarten in the fall. Many thanks to the entire staff, faculty, and students at Paine Intermediate School for their efforts!
