The charity is asking people to ‘make the world better with a sweater’ by wearing a festive knit and donating £2 to Save the Children.
In 2013 the campaign saw two million people across UK sign up to don their Christmas jumpers and raised over £1.3 million for Save the Children’s work in the UK and around the world.
Christmas Jumper Day was phenomenally successful in 2013:
- Over 4,200 schools took part
- Over 10,500 workplaces took part
- #xmasjumperday trended on Twitter
Save the Children’s plans for 2014 are even bigger and they’re hoping to raise over £3 million to help transform children’s lives in some of the toughest parts of the world, and give children living in poverty here in the UK the chance to fulfil their potential.
