What is Christmas Jumper Day?
On Friday 11 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 2020 is on Friday 11 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 11 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 safely pay in my money during Coronavirus?
Wherever possible we urge you to pay in your fundraising online via our pay-in form, or via the phone at 0808 281 1031. The pay-in form link will be live on this website nearer the time - keep an eye out for more details!
Where it's not possible to pay in any other way except by cash, we recommend the following guidelines:
- leave money for 72 hours before handling if possible
- wash your hands with soap and water - or with a hand sanitizer if soap and water aren't available - before and after handling money
- if possible, wear disposable gloves while handling money. Safely dispose of these after use, as well as also washing your hands before and after wearing
- practise social distancing when paying in at the bank or post office: wear a mask and keep at least a 2m distance from other people
For more support, please visit the UK government's coronavirus website for the most up-to-date guidelines.
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.
