Today is Christmas Jumper day! This day supports Save The Children by encouraging people to wear their Christmas jumpers and donate! This is something that is supported up and down the country in schools/colleges/universities/workplaces.
Personally, I think this is a great way to raise money as most people love to wear their Christmas jumpers at this time of year, and it is something that is restricted within the workplace or school due to uniforms etc.
I also thought this would be a great opportunity during blogmas to show off my selection – very few but all very..er..red.
As you can see, I love a red Christmas jumper! But my chosen jumper for the day is my I like warm hugs jumper which was a Secret Santa present from my friend Susie two years ago! (It’s mental that I was in my final year of sixth form two years ago!)
As the website says, “Let’s get silly for a serious cause”. Like I said before, I think this is a great way to make money for a good cause. This is because:
- You don’t have to go to special lengths – pretty much everyone owns a Christmas jumper and if you don’t, it’s a great excuse to treat yourself to one! (Even if you don’t wear a Christmas jumper, it doesn’t stop you from donating)
- You can donate as much as you like! We are encouraging our RAOSTY’s to support by donating £2 each for this cause at their rehearsal this evening, but you can donate as much as you want!
- It’s easy to donate! Social media is great for this. There are links provided to numbers to text or a link on the website to make a donation – it really is that simple! There are also fundraising packs that groups can get to make this job even easier!
A useful link!
Here is a link to the Save the Children website where it explains how your donations will help: https://christmasjumperday.org/how-you-help/
There are many ways that you can support but Redruth Amateur Operatic Society Trust are supporting this cause and have a text code which will donate £2 – text TEAMRAOST to 70050
