The most magical time of the year is nearly here…
Christmas Jumper Day!
24 hours to don your favourite festive knitwear and support a fantastic cause.
The annual event is hosted by ‘Save the Children’, to raise awareness and fundraise for children in need around the world. This year, it’s set to take place on Friday 10th December. And after 2020’s celebrations were rudely cancelled by COVID-19, for 2021, we reckon that everyone should get involved in the joyous occasion.
After all, it’s the season of goodwill and giving.
Why not spread a little cheer this Christmas and read on to learn how you – and your nearest and dearest – can take part?
How to celebrate Christmas Jumper Day 2021
Step 1: Find the perfect novelty pullover
You don’t necessarily need to buy a new jumper to participate. You could dig out the classic Fair Isle knitted by Gran the other year? Or jazz up a basic jersey with some tinsel and baubles? As long as you get involved and help to raise cash, it doesn’t really matter.
Having said that… it’s worth pointing out, here at Tokyo Laundry, we stock an amazing range of Christmas jumpers for men, women and kids. From pullovers that are chic and tasteful to those which are bold, bright and deliberately tasteless, we have the perfect design for everyone. They’re all ready for immediate dispatch and available for a low price, too.
It can’t hurt to take a look, can it? Choose your favourite style from our collection, and we guarantee, this year’s prize for the ‘Best Christmas Jumper’ is defo in the bag!
Step 2: Sign up to the fun and frivolity
To officially take part in Christmas Jumper Day, you’ll need to sign up.
A quick and easy registration form can be found on the ‘Save the Children’ website.
It only takes a few minutes to complete. Just pop in your contact details and say whether you’d like to participate with friends, family, or colleagues, or as a school or nursery. The charity will then send you everything you need to get ready for the big day – including a free online fundraising pack and instructions on how to create a JustGiving page.
So far this year, over 14,000 schools, youth groups, workplaces and homes have all signed up – with over 1.8 million people set to wear their jazziest Christmas jumper on the 10th.
Step 3: Host your own Christmas Jumper Day
The last step is to have some good old-fashioned festive fun!
When the magical day rolls around, just pull on your seasonal sweater and donate £2 each to ‘Save the Children’. If you’d like to boost the total, why not organise a few fundraising activities and events for throughout the day – such as a bake sale, silly sponsorships, jumper competitions, quizzes, and Christmas-themed challenges.
Most people will be joining in on December 10th – but if that date doesn’t work for you, just pick another. It also doesn’t matter if you raise £10, £100, or £1000s. The important thing is to get into the spirit, don some outrageous Christmas knitwear, and do your bit to help – however big or small.
