Save The Children - Xmas Jumper Day 2014


Thank you for the brilliant response to the Christmas jumper day for Save the Children which has raised well over £100 for the charity. If you didn't get the chance to donate, you still can...

How do I get involved?
You can sign up at the Save the Children website, and donate. Those particularly proud of their efforts can use #xmasjumperday to show off online.

The charity hopes that schools, offices and people at home will all get involved, and are asking adults to give £2, and children £1. You can donate by texting JUMPER to 70050 to give £2, going online or on smartphone apps.

Where does the money go to?
All money raised from Christmas Jumper Day will go towards vulnerable children, both in the UK and abroad.

Some 6.6 million children across the world die before their fifth birthday every year, most from easily preventable illnesses like malaria, diarrhoea, malnutrition and pneumonia.

And in the UK alone, 3.5 million children are living in poverty as their families can’t afford nutritious food, heating, household essentials like a cooker, or good quality childcare.

All of the money raised will go towards Save the Children, the charity says.
