It’s finally December and the countdown to Christmas officially begins. We have 24 days before Christmas. But before Christmas, we have Christmas Jumper Day.
Having launched in 2012, Christmas Jumper Day has become a staple part of the build-up to Christmas in the UK. This is the one time of the year that you can wear a tacky jumper and get away with it!
What is Christmas Jumper Day?
Christmas Jumper Day was first introduced by the charity, Save The Children. People are encouraged to wear the tackiest and ugliest Christmas jumpers to work and donate £2.
When is Christmas Jumper Day?
This year’s Christmas Jumper is on 13th December.
How Do I get involved with Christmas Jumper Day?
It’s quite straightforward. You just need to wear a Christmas jumper and donate just £2 to Save the Children.
A lot of people donate as part of a company. Find out at work if your company is partaking in Christmas jumper and donate the money via your company. If your company isn’t taking part you could take the action and champion the cause or just donate directly.
Alternatively, you do it among your family members or a group of friends. Seeing it as an excuse to wear jumpers and donate money to help Save The Children.
How can I raise money for Save The Children?

These are just a few ideas off the top of my head. I’ll leave it to you to do the rest.
