About Christmas Jumper Day

On Friday 13 December thousands of people up and down the UK will start their day by pulling on a Christmas jumper for a great cause – to help create a brighter future for children.

Whether you join in at work, at home, at school or down the pub, it’s all about getting everyone together for some serious silliness.

And by donating £2 each, you’ll help make sure children growing up in some of the toughest places in the world get a chance to grow up and fulfill their potential.

Fouad is full of energy and mischief and beneath this smile lies a big heart. Born in Syria at the start of the war, he was just a small baby when his family had to flee their home. Now, with support from people like you, he’s learning to read and write, and enjoys marking out letters and words in his own special notebook.
