Make the World Better with a Sweater

This Friday 14th December my office will be taking part in Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day

Wearing a Christmas jumper (or tinsel, tights, hat as we've decided) for the day and bringing in £1.00 helps everyone to get into the Chrsitmas spirit, whilst at the same time helping some of the world's poorest children. Contributions go towards providing school books, classrooms, mosquito nets and life-saving vaccines.

Their website has lots of free knitting patterns if you don't have your own jumper yet and fancy knitting your own (my friend offered to teach me to knit yesterday in the coming weeks, so I'm looking forward to making my own next year!). And if making your own jumper from scratch in the space of a few days is too much - as is the case with most people - then you can print off templates to stick onto your clothes, or try out customising an old jumper for less than £10.
I really like the idea of attaching these felt Christmas decorations to yourself at just £1 each from Wilkinsons.

There's also other fun things to do like hanging up Christmas jumper bunting with Save the Children's template or try out making some yummy gingerbread men to share around the office, thanks to their Frost the Gingerbread Man recipe.

This is a great cause for anyone who's crafty and wants to take part in a great charity. Read more here www.savethechildren.org.uk/christmas-jumper-day
