While many seasonal events have been canceled this year, Christmas Jumper Day 2020 is one that is thankfully still going ahead.
Christmas Jumper Day is an annual fundraising campaign in Ireland and The UK organised by 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, Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is on Friday 11 December. To take part people can register their workplace, school or group of family and friends on the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day website.
Christmas Jumper Day is popular with schools and workplaces. Work is much more fun when you’re wearing a Christmas Jumper.
While Christmas Jumper Day has a specified date, people are encouraged to raise money by wearing their Christmas jumpers on any day of their choosing. Also people can raise money for Children`s Fundacion they choosing.
My workplace take 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 on 4th to 6th December.
