What is Christmas Jumper Day?
On Friday 13 December, everyone – and we mean EVERYONE – is going to be putting on Christmas jumpers and donating £2 to Save the Children (or £1 if you're at nursery, school or a youth group).
When is it?
Christmas Jumper Day 2019 is on Friday 13 December. Can’t make that date? Not a problem, just pick another day.
Can I do it another time?
Yes! If you want the buzz of knowing millions of other people are getting dressed up at the same time too, then go for Friday 13 December. But if that date isn’t a winner then no worries, just get your jumper out on a day that suits you.
Who can take part?
Everyone, even dogs! (Quite a lot of dogs, actually.) Last year more than 4 million people said they’d wear a silly sweater, and this year could be even bigger.
Do I need to be in a group?
No way! Lots of champion Christmas jumper wearers go solo. It’s all about wearing your jumper with pride. You could even set up your own fundraising page and get sponsored.
How do I sign up?
Do I have to buy a jumper?
Absolutely 100% no. You do not! In fact, we think it’s awesome if you don’t. You could decorate an old jumper, go to one of our community shops or swap one with friends.
Can I raise more than £2?
Of course! That would make you an awesome fundraiser and mean you’re making an even bigger difference to children all around the world. We’ve got top tips and tactics for raising more money in our free Fundraising Game Plan – just sign up to get one.
How do I pay in my money?
That bit’s simple! The paying in link will be live on this website nearer the time, and you’ll get instructions for paying in at the bank or by post in your Fundraising Game Plan.
What is a team text code?
If you're registering at work or somewhere else you can set up your very own team text code. You'll be able to share this with everyone taking part so they can text in their donation. Don't have a team text code? Give the team at Jumper HQ a call and they can set this up for you.
Can I set up a fundraising page online?
Yes – great question! Sounds like you’ve got what it takes to be a champion Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser. When you sign up we’ll send info on how to set up your page on JustGiving.
When will I get my fundraising pack?
Soon! We'll put the packs in the post at the start of November, so you can start getting in the zone for the big day.
Can I get extra fundraising materials?
Not enough stickers? Need another collection box? No worries. Our top team at Jumper HQ can get them to you. Just give them a ring on 0808 281 1031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I get fundraising materials in Welsh?
Galli! All of our fundraising pack materials are available in Welsh. We'll send you a link to our online pack closer to the event so keep an eye on your inbox.
How will the money I raise help?
