Frequently Asked Questions

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).

Christmas Jumper Day 2020 is on Friday 11 December. Can’t make that date? Not a problem, just pick another day. 

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. 

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.

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.

Fill out this quick form - it takes two minutes!

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. 

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. 

Please note, JustGiving only accepts a minimum donation of £2. Therefore, if your donation is less than £2 you can:

Donate via our pay-in form, using your reference number CJD20XXXXXX - [find your reference number in your email or fundraising pack] on any donation made. 

• Donate via your school’s payment platform

• Bring in cash - remember to set aside cash for 72 hours when collecting.

Once you sign up to the event you'll be offered a team text code that you can share for safe paying in. We'll also be offering each fundraiser to claim a JustGiving page which will include a QR code to help raise money safely, as well as our own pay-in form on the website.

Wherever possible we urge you to pay in your fundraising using these methods, or via the phone at 0808 281 1031. 

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.

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.

Yes – great question! Sounds like you’ve got what it takes to be a champion Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser. Once you've signed up, claim your JustGiving page here. 

Due to the events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we have been given a heads up by our courier service that this will affect the delivery of the fundraising packs.  If you sign up between 24th November – 3rd December you will receive your pack around the 9th December. 

If you’re requesting a fundraising pack after the 9th you’ll receive a link to a virtual pack, containing the same resources to print from home / work. 

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 christmasjumper@savethechildren.org.uk.

By taking part, you’re helping children build a better future. Sound good? Read these children’s stories to find out more.

The Jumper HQ team is always happy to help. Give us a call on 0808 281 1031 or email christmasjumper@savethechildren.org.uk.
