Christmas Jumper Day

Save the Children


Here at Save the Children, we’ve figured out that sometimes the best way to tackle a serious problem is to do something really silly. And on Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day on 16th December 2016, schools, homes and offices everywhere took their silliness very seriously. People were up all night wrapping tinsel round their knitwear, turned up for date night dressed like a figgy pudding, and spent hours in front of the mirror trying to balance their baubles. But that’s not even the half of it…

You see, just by each wearing their daftest knitwear and donating to Save the Children, everyone who took part helped the world’s forgotten children look forward to a brighter future. Together over 56,000 schools, offices and families took part – smashing our target of £3.175 million and raising over £4 million to help save children’s lives. And they did it while wearing a pair of homemade reindeer antlers. From Arsenal Football Club to the Royal Family waxworks at Madame Tussaud’s just about everyone in Britain put on their silly jumper and helped make a serious difference to children’s lives. On Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day – silly just got serious.
