Today is Christmas Jumper Day – it means get out your favourite winter woolly, wear it and donate £2 to Save The Children by texting WOOLLY to 70050
Last year I didn’t have a Christmas jumper, this year I do, so I’m wearing it (pic below!) and have donated my £2 to Save The Children.
Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day is now in its third year and, thanks to fantastic supporters popping on their pullovers up and down the nation, they’ve raised more than £1.6 million to date. This year the government will double your money – matching every pound you give. The money raised will help save lives. Just £2 could pay for potentially life-saving antibiotics to treat three babies with infections. And the more raised, the more children we can reach.
For many of us, £2 is not very much, to the children in the 120 countries that Save The Children support, it can mean everything.
