Friday 13th December 2013 sees the return of Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day with a raft of celebrity support and lots of ways to get involved; from knitting workshops to live gigs and record breaking attempts – Save the Children has it sewn up!
On Friday 13th December 2013 Save the Children is calling on people across the UK to help make the world better with a sweater and take part in the tradition of wearing a kitsch Christmas jumper in exchange for a £1 donation to raise money for its life saving work with children the world over. Support for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day has already started in earnest, with celebrities posing in their festive woollies.
Wear your jumper on Christmas Jumper Day on 13 December and donate £1 to Save the Children at www.christmasjumperday.org. You can buy your Christmas jumper from John Lewis, official retail partner of Christmas Jumper Day. £25 from the sale of every jumper in the Save the Children range goes to the charity.
Guinness World Record attempt
Choreographer and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Philips is adding even more excitement to Christmas Jumper Day by leading Save the Children’s attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people wearing Christmas jumpers in one space. Arlene will be providing a twist to the record breaking attempt by choreographing a dance routine to a Christmas classic and leading the record breaking participants in the routine on the day.

All money raised from Christmas Jumper Day activities will help save the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children. In the world’s poorest countries, more than 7 million children die every year from easily preventable causes like diarrhoea and malnutrition. Simple solutions, like vaccines and mosquito nets save lives – so by getting friends and colleagues to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper day on Friday 13th December and donating £1, you can help make a real difference.
