Christmas Jumper Day

While many seasonal events have been canceled this year. Christmas Jumper Day 2020 is one that is thankfully still going ahead.

It is an annual fundraising campaign in Ireland and The UK organized by the charity Save the Children.

On a specific Friday in December, people are encouraged to make the world better. With a sweater and raise funds for Save the Children by wearing a Christmas jumper. And making a minimum donation of €2.

Save the Children launched their Christmas Jumper Day in 2012 on Friday, 14 December.

In 2020, it is on Friday 11 December. To take part people can register their workplace. Also school or group of family and friends on the Save the Children website.

It is popular with schools and workplaces. Work is much more fun when you’re wearing a Jumper.

While Christmas Jumper Day has a specified date. But people are encouraged to raise money by wearing their Christmas Jumpers on any day of their choosing. Also, people can raise money for the Children`s Fundacion they choose.

My workplace takes part in this wonderful event every year. Our annual Dunnes Stores Christmas Jumper Day was in aid of The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. This year it took place from 4th to 6th December.

The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is a nationwide charity that offers support, advocacy, and in-home nursing services to help children and their families under the age of 6 years who have a significant neurodevelopmental delay involving severe learning difficulties.

Foundation was born arising from Jonathan Irwin’s and Mary Ann O’Brien’s own difficult care journey when their son Jack suffered permanent brain damage soon after birth, leaving him with severe disabilities and in need of round-the-clock care.
