Christmas Jumper Day is an annual fundraising campaign in the UK in aid of Save the Children. On a specific Friday in December, Save the Children encourages people to make the world better with a sweater and raise funds for the charity by wearing a Christmas jumper and making a minimum donation of £1.[1][2]

Those taking part can wear a Christmas jumper they already own, decorate an existing jumper with festive decorations, or even knit their own. Groups may take part in additional fundraising activities on the day.[3][4] Save the Children launched Christmas Jumper Day in 2012 on Friday, 14 December.[5] In 2013, Christmas Jumper Day took place on Friday, 13 December.[6]
