Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day 2016

Every year the boys and i like to get involved with Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day and this year is no different. It’s something that’s silly and fun, but something that we really look forward to.

This year, Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday 16th December. Sillyness will be sweeping the nation as schools, homes and offices across the country will be ditching their uniforms and day-to-day dress in favour of Christmas jumpers. Celebrities who have popped on a pullover to mark their support for the 2016 campaign include James Corden, Fleur East, Myleene Klass, Jess Wright, Freddie Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp and Conor Maynard.

The best bit is that all this festive silliness actually serves a very serious purpose – making a difference to the world’s most vulnerable children. By sticking on a silly seasonal sweater and donating £2 to Save the Children (£1 if you’re at school) at christmasjumperday.org, you’ll be saving children’s lives and giving them the opportunity to have a better future.

All funds raised through Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day could help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, help the charity to buy food for an entire family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It could also help the charity bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support. All this, just by you wearing a novelty jumper for one day – it’s a very silly and fun way to solve some very serious problems.

If last year’s sweater just isn’t cutting it, why not head to your nearest Save the Children store where they’re calling out for people to donate their unwanted Christmas jumpers?

Speaking of sweaters, the charity has teamed up with Selfish Mother and some of the nation’s top models to create a series of slogan sweatshirts in celebration of the day. Featuring festive words and slogans like ‘Sparkle’, ‘Off Duty Elf’, ‘Cracker’, ‘Santa’s Helper’, ‘Nutcracker’ and more the sweatshirts are available for adults (£45) and children (£20) and 50% from each one sold will be donated to Save the Children.

Other companies supporting the campaign include Papa Johns who will be donating 50p to Save the Children for every XXL pizza sold up until 2nd January 2017, Ella’s Kitchen will be donating 30p from the sale of every ‘jingle belly Christmas dinner’ pouch’ and WHSmith who will be selling two Christmas Jumper Day bears – called Benji and Bruno – instore and online for £4.99, with £1 being donated to Save the Children for every bear sold.

Additionally, £1 from each sale of 16 products in the popular Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn range at Argos will go to Save the Children’s UK work, helping children reach their full potential by giving them the chance to play and learn.

Riley, Harry and I will be donning our Christmas jumpers this Friday, will you?

    It’s amazing to know how many campaigns are available to help children. The other day I went to LUSH and they also sell a small hand-cream for £1 that goes to charity (not sure which one, but it’s always good to help specially at this time). Thanks for sharing x
