Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day: 12 December
Hi Ladies... please see fundraising opportunity from the charity: "Save the Children" below.
Dear Ladies Circle,
I am writing to you about Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day, Friday 12th December, 2014.
The idea is simple - we ask people to 'make the world better with a sweater', wear a festive knit and donate £2 to Save the Children. In 2013 the campaign saw 2 million people across UK sign up to don their Christmas jumpers and raised over £1.3million for Save the Children's work in the UK and around the world.
Christmas Jumper Day was phenomenally successful in 2013:
- We raised over £1.3 million for Save the Children
- Over 4,200 schools took part
- Over 10,500 workplaces took part
- #xmasjumperday trended on Twitter
Our plans for 2014 are even bigger and we're hoping to raise over £3 million. We'd love for your help promoting the day to all your contacts - we can provide you with all you need including copy for newsletters, tweets and Facebook posts.
We will also provide a digital 'badge of support', so you can let people know you are supporting Save the Children. Additionally, we would love for you to take part in Christmas Jumper Day in your offices and we can provide fundraising materials and PR advice for publicising your involvement.
If you would like more information on the important work that we carry out, please see our website http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/
I look forward to hearing from you,
