’Tis the season of giving and the team at Melan Magazine are thrilled to be supporting this year’s Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day taking place on Friday 16 December.
Silliness will be sweeping the nation as schools, homes and offices across the country will be ditching their day-to-day dress for wacky jumpers in aid of Save the Children.
From technicolour festive knits festooned with reindeer antlers, turning up to date night dressed like a figgy pudding and spending hours in front of the mirror trying to balance their baubles, you’re encouraged to be your silliest self in celebration of Christmas Jumper Day! By sticking on a daft sweater, signing up and donating £2 to Save the Children (£1 if you’re at school) at christmasjumperday.org, you’ll be helping to save children’s lives.
You’ll be in good company, celebrities, such as Wretch 32, James Corden, Jack Whitehall, Fleur East, Myleene Klass, and Reggie and Bollie, to name a few, are showing their support for the campaign by popping on their own crazy holiday wear!
So why not tap into the Christmas spirit. Your actions could help a child living in a refugee camp to get the right clothes to keep them warm through winter, buy nutritious food for their family, or set up a safe space to give children the chance to be children again. It could also help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support. All this, just by wearing a daft jumper – it’s a very silly way to solve some very serious problems!
