Friday 13th December 2013 Christmas Jumper Day
Did you know that you can make a real difference by just wearing a festive jumper and donating just one pound? As Save the Children is asking people to make the World better with a sweater. This is to help raise money for their life-saving work, which helps the most vulnerable children, in the poorest countries, with things such as vaccines and mosquito nets. Save the Children work in more than 120 countries. They save children’s lives. They fight for their rights. They help them fulfil their potential. www.savethechildren.org.uk
Support for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day has already started with celebrities Myleene Klass, Julie Walters, Lorraine Kelly, Gok Wan, Rochelle Humes, Erin O’Connor, Lauren Laverne, Alex Jones, Bruno Tonioli, Ashleigh & Pudsey, Arlene Philips, Nate James, Simon Rimmer, Jay Rayner, Daniel Roche, Kate Thornton, Jack Topping, Natasha Kaplinsky and Dom Joly already in their festive knits.
